Ethan Lane Harden

February 14, 2001June 10, 2013

Ethan was born almost 6 weeks early to Brian and Anissa Harden in La Grande Oregon and quickly grew to be the biggest boy in his classes. He grew up in Baker City Oregon and attended Preschool through 4th grade there. He attended 5th and 6th grades at Fruitland Middle School in Idaho. Ethan was loving to all whom he met and was a stranger to no one. He delighted in sharing with others his faith in God's promises. He was kind, respectful, and generous. Ethan had a great sense of humor and loved to make people laugh. He loved most outdoor activities, including camping, hiking, geocaching, fishing, riding his bike, swimming, riding horses and sports of all sorts. He loved building worlds with his Legos and in Minecraft. He liked to share carnivals with his friends and family. He enjoyed reading, performing plays and photography. He will be deeply missed by all whose lives he touched.

Dear Brian and Anissa,

I am so deeply sorry for your loss. Since you moved after Ethan's 4th grade year in my class, I have thought of him often. His big smile and kindness toward everyone was infectious. Ethan has a very special place in my heart.

Brian and Anissa, We have such good memories of Ethan at South Baker. Such a kind and sunny kid, with plenty of loving support from his parents. I remember the time he was something funny like a banana in the play and he played it to the hilt and wore a great costume.....(:
We will be praying for you and send heartfelt condolences at this time. We are so deeply sorry for your heartbreak.

Dear Anissa and Brian,
We are so saddened that you've experienced such a heavy loss. We know you loved Ethan up one side and down the other. On the few occasions we had the privilege of spending time with him, this love showed in his smile, and oozed out of every corner of him. We hope that it brings you a measure of comfort to know that he is safe. We look forward to the time when he wakes from sleep and smiles that sweet smile again. In the meantime, you are in our prayers.--Love, Ed, Julie, and the Kids
