OBITUARY

Ethan Michael Bain

February 27, 1999June 5, 2019

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved son, Ethan Michael Bain, on June 5th, 2019 at the age of 20. Ethan will be missed every day by his parents Suzanne and Greg, brother Brandon, grandparents Robert & Rita Hayward, his aunts, uncles, cousins, and many friends. He graduated from Abbotsford Senior Secondary in 2017 and was pursuing a career in Aviation through both UFV and Okanagan College in Kelowna. He had already completed his Private Pilots license and was finishing his Commercial Pilots license. With plans to become a floatplane pilot, this staggering loss is made all the more painful by the fact that the next chapter of his life was just starting to take off. Ethan lived a larger than life existence and packed a tremendous amount of excitement and adventure into his short 20 years. He loved to go fishing, camping, skiing and longboarding…but what he cherished most was spending time with his friends and family. He will be missed by so very many people. Funeral arrangements are being handled by Henderson’s Funeral Home. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Quality Hotel (36035 North Parallel Rd., Abbotsford BC) on Friday, June 14, 2019 at 1:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Lookout Society, specifically the Riverside Shelter in Abbotsford. Ethan really enjoyed helping others, and this is his way of giving back

The Bains were our neighbours for a few years, back when Brandon was just a wee tyke, and we were still neighbours when Suzanne and Greg welcomed Ethan. I used to babysit both boys from time to time which I absolutely loved, such sweet little guys.
The internet somehow brought me to this memorial by chance, and I am so saddened to hear of Ethan's passing.
Suzanne, Greg and Brandon - I wanted to leave a message sending you love and condolences, I just wish I could do more to bring you comfort.
Love from the Styre family ❤

Still think about you every day bro... your smile, your energy, your laugh... it has been extremely difficult for me to come to terms with your passing. I am not sure I’ll every fully accept it. You were my best friend in the entire world and I always thought of you like a brother to me. I promise to cherish the memories we had together until the day I see you again. You were taken from this earth too soon... you had such a bright future ahead of you. I will always be proud of you and all of the great things you have done. You impacted my life in such amazing and unforgettable way and I wish I could have thanked you more for that. I love you man.

Rest easy❤️

I know it’s been 6 months already but I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that you’re dead- no sleeping, not just away at school or work, but dead. The house is so so quiet without you here making noise with your friends. I’m having a rough time right now and I know dad is too. We’re just so very sad that you’re gone and really not coming back. I’m not quite sure how I’m gonna deal with that. God help everyone around me when it finally sinks in. Love ❤️ you buddy and miss you every day. Wish I could re-do so many things that I did wrong but that’s no longer an option so I’ll just continue to be sorry that I wasn’t a better parent and try to move forward anyway. Love you sweetheart!

It only takes one interaction with Ethan to appreciate his energy. He was never short for conversation and lit up the room with stories. We always felt inspired to dream bigger after a chat with Ethan. Always a laugh, always sincere, always polite. One of a kind for sure.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss.. I can't begin to image what you all are going through and how difficult it must be. I wanted to let you all know that I've been thinking about you

In genuine memory of Ethan Michael Bain,
Although I didn't know you for long, your genuine kindness and quickness with a joke made me feel like a friend. The way you jumped at a chance to energetically tell a story that'd give a comedian a run for his money took me back to times from my hometown. I'll cherish the memories you gave and many stories you told forever.
