Ethan Lewis Obituary, Death- Our hearts are broken to share the news of the passing of Ethan Lewis, cherished stepfather, educator, and friend. On Monday, Ethan departed this world, but not before leaving a lasting impression on the lives of those he had touched via his generosity, wisdom, and inspiration.
We realize that this information will likely shock many of you, and we wish we could offer an explanation for the delay in getting in touch with you at this time. Ethan’s commitment to teaching was more than a job—it was his life’s mission. He devoted himself to teaching for 24 years, during which time he hopefully influenced many young people for the better.
In addition to making lifelong companions, several of his students went on to become educators themselves. The educational community will forever be marked by Ethan’s impact, which went far beyond the classroom. The State Journal-Register will shortly print an official obituary for him, detailing his life and accomplishments in greater depth.
We are also making every effort to reserve a location for a memorial service for Ethan. We plan to celebrate his wonderful life by getting together on September 30th or October 1st to remember the good times and exchange stories. Share your thoughts, stories, and insights about Ethan with us here or on Corrine Frisch’s post as we remember him together.
Our shared experiences and the comfort of those around us are our only hope for survival. Although Ethan’s time on Earth was cut much too short, he left an indelible mark on the lives of those who knew him. He was physically slight, but his heart was huge and full of kindness and love.
Many of us are heartbroken, but we take solace in the fact that Ethan’s legacy will live on and inspire and uplift future generations. Let us honor Ethan Lewis’ memory by modeling the same enthusiasm, generosity, and commitment to learning that he did. Let him rest in peace, knowing that he touched the lives of everyone lucky enough to have known him.
