Ethaniel Christopher Absher came blazing into this world on July 26, 1999, in Redlands, California.
He spent the majority of his life up in the beautiful San Bernardino mountains. And he capitalized on growing up a true hippie – barefoot and naked every chance he got.
He lost his life abruptly and unfairly on Oct. 14, 2022. He loved life, he had goals and he had ambition. He lived life on his terms. And his terms alone. He truly was wise beyond his years.
He is preceded in death by his auntie KK, his Papa Hog, Edward Lefebvre, his uncle Sean Lutz, and his grandfather, Papa Mutt.
He is survived by his son, Daxter; his mama, Miranda Spitulski; his father, Christopher Absher; his siblings who are completely heartbroken…Isabelle Absher, Austin Lutz and Lily Lutz. Many others considered him a brother. He also is survived by his stepfather, Chad Lutz, and Drew Spitulski, who both loved him fiercely and with zero strings attached. He had several uncles, aunts and cousins who will feel this pain that no one deserves to feel. He is also survived by a multitude of grandparents who loved him deeply.
He was incredibly spiritual. He had a strong kinship to his Native American heritage and most recently discovered his love for God.
Every single time he saw someone he loved, his face would light up. Pure magic! It was the type of smile that would set your soul on fire. If he was having a particularly difficult day, he still made sure that everyone around him was doing well. He was a protector, a mama’s boy and a fighter for all the underdogs.
