Ethan Jack Weber, age 23, of Farmington, Minn., passed away on Tuesday, July 25, in a tragic car accident in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Ethan was born on May 31, 1994, in Burnsville, Minn., to Maureen (Weber) Josephs and Rus Norden and grew up in Farmington, Minn. He attended Farmington schools and was involved in countless activities. Starting at a young age Ethan began exploring his love for sports and participated in hockey, baseball, football, and golf through his community. His devotion to Christ led him to missions in remote villages in Mexico. He had a passion for basketball, fishing, dirt biking, Frisbee golf, hiking, cooking, and was always adopting new hobbies. Whether he was rappelling cliffs in Alaska, playing soccer with local children in the Yucatan, or snorkeling in the Bahamas, Ethan has always had an adventurous spirit, and truly lived life to its fullest. He had a deep love for animals and was always finding ways to surround himself with them. Ethan was pursuing a career serving animals. He loved to work with horses and spent several years shoeing horses with his uncle Mark in Arizona, which is how he met the love of his life, Ariana McGinty. Son, brother, uncle, friend, Ethan touched many lives in his short time and will be greatly missed. His memory will live on through all the stories we share and cherish.

Ethan was preceded in death by his grandfather, Robert Norden; and his aunt, Wendy Weber.

He is survived by the love of his life, Ariana McGinty; his mother, Maureen (Jake) Josephs and father, Rus Norden; Mark Larson; sisters, Ashleigh (Tony) DeGrood and Jaime Weber; nephew, Sawyer DeGrood; grandparents, Francis and Marilyn (McCluskey) Weber, Carol Norden, Jean Larson; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
