Ethan was a 6th grader at Highland Middle School, where he was learning to play the violin in the school orchestra. He had also recently begun taking guitar lessons. Ethan enjoyed doing all the things 11-year old boys like to do, including playing video games, and going out into the neighborhood to play soccer, football, and basketball. Summers were fun, and meant going to the family’s spot at Roy Lake, where he fished and worked on his skills as a beginning water-skier. Ethan attended Wesley United Methodist Church and Sunday school, and liked to sing with the other kids during church services. He was a member of the local Cub Scout troop, and would have soon moved up to Boy Scouts.
