Ethan Falkowitz, a beautiful soul taken too soon

Our firstborn, Ethan, was killed on May 3, 2023 when a drunk driver hit the car he and his teammates were in after celebrating a huge team win. To say that Ethan was a special young man would be the understatement of our lives. He sought happiness in making others happy. Nothing was impossible. His outlook was filled with optimism and curiosity. He was goal-oriented, selfless, diligent, funny, athletic and was preparing himself to change the world for the better. Ethan didn’t just love to learn. He loved to teach whatever it is he learned. He didn’t want to believe that there was “bad” in the world. He stayed away from dangerous activities and could only be truly happy if those around him were happy. It is now our life‘s mission to continue what Ethan started. One way or another, we will find a way out of this nightmare and make sure that Ethan‘s legacy is cemented, not by his tragic death, but by his endless love for others.
