Ethan was born November 22, 1991 in Columbus, the son of Mark and Angie Thompson. He was a junior at Harris County High School where he was a member of the Tiger football team and tennis team. Ethan was an active member of Kings Pasture Church where he was greatly admired and served as a youth leader and a member of the youth band. He also played Recreation League Soccer and enjoyed hunting, fishing and playing the guitar. Ethan was a special young man with a unique sense of humor who was loved by everyone he met. Ethan is survived by his parents, Mark and Angie Thompson of Pine Mountain Valley; brother, Zach Thompson of Pine Mountain Valley; paternal grandparents, Aubrey and Catherine Thompson of Columbus and several cousins, aunts and uncles.

I am beyond devastated. There will never be another like him. He was half of my heart and soul.  

There is a stillness in our home that was never there before.  A void. A vacuum. 

My sweet Spawn II.  No more surprise visits to me at work to bring me a milkshake. No more Georgia Bulldogs ringtone on my cell announcing your calls. No more impromptu EZE crumpin or crazy, random raps.  No more thrice weekly visits to San Marcos for steak quesadillas and cheese dip and visits to Jose’, your hermano.   

To me you personified this proverb:  When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life in such a manner that when you die the world cries and you rejoice.   

The world….YOUR world….is crying.

You are the best 16 year old a momma ever had…..
