Ethan Nathaniel Taylor
2008 ~ 2023
Maysville, Missouri…Ethan Nathaniel Taylor, age 14, the son of Scott Taylor and Valerie (Sifers) Moore was born on December 1, 2008, in Liberty, MO, during a huge ice storm stranding his big brother and sister, Slade and Haley Taylor and Meema Kandy overnight! He passed away October 15, 2023, in Maysville, MO.
Ethan attended HeadStart in Maysville for a year in a half before moving to Cameron, where he completed Preschool through his 7th grade year. He then moved to Maysville where he attended his 8th grade year and was currently in his Freshman year of high school.
In Jr. High, Ethan participated in football, basketball, and track, and was looking forward to wrestling and playing baseball on the high school team. He was a member of the Maysville FFA. Ethan loved all sports, but baseball was his true passion, which began as a small boy in t-ball. He could not wait until he was able to play in school.
Many days you could find Ethan outside at his Aunt Jodi’s with Alexavier, Chloe or even his little brother, Erickson shooting hoops or jumping on the trampoline. At his dad’s house you might see him out playing catch with his dad or brother, Erickson. Ethan also liked to go fishing and camping at Suey and Bobby Wayne’s lake. He would ride circles around Bo and Erickson on the jet skis in the middle of the lake. He was always ready for a day on the boat with Uncle Bubba and Aunt Laney at Lake Viking. He even liked to mow if it meant he got to spend the night by himself. He really looked forward to the yearly visits to the pumpkin patch, Worlds of Fun and Great Wolf Lodge with his mom and siblings.
Ethan is survived by his loving family: parents, Valerie Moore (Nick) and Scott Taylor (Amelia); siblings, Slade Taylor (Danielle), Haley Taylor, Emma and Erica Dannar, Erickson Taylor, Evan Barton, Tielyr Young, Deneen and Brayden Detwieler; grandparents, Ron and Pam Sifers, Lynn Horn, Randy and Debbie Taylor, Meema Kandy Taylor Owen; great-granny Dorothy Sifers; aunts and uncles, John Sifers, Randall and Laney Taylor, Jodi Clark, Jasmine and Jeff Millenbruch; nephews, Maverick and Stetson Taylor; cousins, Jayce and Alana Taylor, Brianna (Ayrik), Brooklyn, Alexavier and Chloe Clark, Bo and Beckham Millenbruch; special grandparents, Suey and Bobby Wayne Clark; and many extended family and friends.
