Ethan M. Rainer

December 12, 2005 — May 10, 2024

On December 12, 2005, Ethan M. Rainer came into this world as a bouncy, rambunctious baby with beautiful, big dark eyes. Anyone who knew Ethan, knew that he had his own way of doing things and that was true from day one. This was a wonderful thing because his way was filled with love and passion. Everything he did had those underlying qualities, whether it was playing soccer or the trombone, hanging out with his family or friends, or even working hard at his new landscaping job.

Okay, okay, I admit that he did his homework with neither love nor passion; however, doing it in his own way, he met all the requirements and was awarded his diploma from West Carrolton High School post-mortem.

From a very young age, Ethan's commitment to his passions were clear. From playing with Tonka trucks as a kid to learning every hyper car's horsepower, he had a special passion for cars. He was planning to build on this by attending Sinclair College to obtain a degree in automotive technology; a career path that followed a great line of men and women in his life going back several generations and including his grandfather, David; his great-uncle Uncle Billy; his father, Ronnie; his uncle Steven; and his brother, David.

Ethan had a big heart that he made obvious to his large, loving family. He cared deeply for his grandfather, David, who predeceased him; his parents, Elizabeth and Ronnie; his siblings, David and Virigina; his grandmother, Maria; his uncles and aunts, Steven, Adriane, Kristina, Joe, and Regina; and his cousins, Victoria, Arthur, Theodore, Elijah, and Katherine; and his extended family, who all survived him.

Ethan enjoyed many vacations with his family, especially to the beach or waterpark where he could splash his sister, Virginia. When he found himself confined to his aunt's office to ensure his homework was done, he was excited every time his brother, David, came to his rescue with plans to play baseball. Much to his grandmother's chagrin, he loved playing Dungeons and Dragons at her house with his cousin Victoria and aunt Regina; the volume and general obnoxiousness of their laughter was notorious within the family.

On May 10, 2024, Ethan's love and passion were shifted from this world and into Heaven, where he is with his grandfather and serving God, undoubtedly, in his own way. Here on earth, his last gift was his beautiful big dark eyes, which he donated.
