BOONSBORO - Like most 11-year-old boys, Zachary Beard liked baseball and basketball.
He liked cinnamon toast, too, according to family friend Darlene Miller of Boonsboro.
Miller had known the Boonsboro youth since he was an infant, she said. That's when her mother started baby-sitting him.
"He'd always ask for cinnamon toast when he came home from school," she said.
"And he loved computers. He loved computers. But there was one thing he loved more, and that was his four-wheeler."
It was an accident on his all terrain vehicle that claimed the boy's life and injured two playmates Saturday.
"I'm kind of lost for words," Miller said Sunday. "He was my boy."
His great-aunt, Shirley Beard, also of Boonsboro, had few words herself.
"They were just good little boys; that's all I can say."
