Mr. Ethan Lee Valladarez, 26 of King City passed away on Monday, June 11th, 2018. He was born November 13th, 1991.
Ethan was a fun loving and charismatic free soul that loved his family more than anything. He was a beloved Son, Brother, Boyfriend, Best Friend, Cousin and recently an Uncle. Born and raised in King City, returning home after graduating from college. He attended New Mexico Highlands University where he earned his bachelor’s Degree in Political Science. His relationship with his family defined his being and created memories that will last forever.
He was an avid football fan; lived and breathed The Oakland Raiders football alongside his brothers. He loved to play the game as an All-Star for King City High and watched the game throughout his life with die hard passion. He carried his love for the game back to his Alma Mater and assisted the Mustangs as coach for two seasons. Nothing brought more joy to his life than enjoying Reggae music in the company of his loved ones. No matter the location, no matter the conditions if it was a Reggae concert Ethan’s answer was always “suuuure!” He was an avid hunter, softball player, and enjoyed hitting the links as well. He was the glue to a very close family that loved him more than life itself, and will cherish his memory forever.
Ethan is survived by his parents, Shannon and Frank Valladarez; siblings, Isaac, Eric, Isaiah, Elijah and Savannah; nieces, Willow and Emma; girlfriend, Justine Vigil; grandmother, Darlene Acosta and God Parents, Hector and Norma Gonzales
