Ethan was rare. You don’t come across many people like him in life. He was selfless, caring, loving, intelligent, and funny. As a child, much of his time was spent either on the front lawn tossing the ball around, swimming in the pool with friends, or on the golf course with his father. Ethan was an avid reader and writer, who enjoyed writing poetry. He drew much inspiration from his idol, Jim Morrison, not only from his personal poetry but also from the music of “The Doors.” Following in the footsteps of his favorite comedians, Chris Farley and Doug Stanhope, Ethan was a “stand-up comedian”, always cracking jokes at the expense of his family and friends. Most importantly, Ethan loved and he loved hard. He cared deeply about his family and friends.
Ethan helped me get through some extremely tough seasons in my life. He was present when no one else was. Ethan, if I could tell you one thing- it is you absolutely changed my life. In every way possible. You played the role of brother the best. Chloe would agree also. Mom & Dad miss you and love you more than anything. We are all sorry we couldn’t save you.
I miss you and love you buddy. We all do.
