A 28-year-old man proposed to his fiancee from a hospital window and married her two days before dying after a long battle with an illness.

Zachary “Zac” McNally, from Bury, died at Manchester Royal Infirmary on April 15 after spending two and a half years in hospital with blood cancer.

Two days earlier he was able to marry his fiancée Amy after proposing to her by holding up a sign from his hospital window, she reported Manchester evening news.

His stepmother, Karen Stringer, said Zac died “larger than life” surrounded by his family.

“He was just a larger than life character that everyone will miss. He had hundreds of friends who we expect to come to the funeral,” she said.

Zac, known to Manchester United fans as Zac Mac, was just 25 years old when he was diagnosed with leukemia in autumn 2019.

He was hospitalized just before Christmas.

The pandemic made it difficult for people to visit him in hospital, although father Ian, mother Lynne and Amy were able to visit him after a while.

Doctors successfully performed a stem cell transplant on Zac, but it wasn’t enough to save him.

“He was actually cured of leukemia because he had a stem cell transplant,” Karen said.

“It cured him of blood cancer. Because he was so ill, he was put into a coma. He couldn’t fight infection… but we’re not sure what doctors will say as the cause of death.

“He died on Good Friday. All his close family was there last week. We all slept last night. We all drew comfort and solace from it.

“On Wednesday of this week he woke up and was allowed to be seen by friends. They came out in tears, but they said he was laughing even then.”

In keeping with Zac’s character, he managed to propose to his girlfriend Amy when the couple couldn’t meet, Karen said.

“He proposed at the hospital while we were down in the parking lot. He put up a plaque asking her to marry him,” she said.

“In this last week the hospital priest blessed the wedding. He was churchly but not legally married two days before his death.”

Zac also had messages of encouragement from sports stars including his favorite Manchester United player Wes Brown and boxers Scott Quigg and Carl Frampton.

Karen paid tribute to Zac, adding, “He was just a big, handsome, lovely boy.”
