Metzger, Ethen Ryan

March 7, 1978 - May 21, 2023


It is with great sadness, we announce that Ethen passed away at Grand River Hospital on Sunday, May 21 2023 in his 45th year.


Beloved son of Maryanne and Dennis Metzger and a dear brother to Riley (Becky). He will be deeply missed by his nephew Izaiah and nieces Gloria and Grace. Devoted grandson to Shirley Bratherton.


Precious grandson of the late Edwin and Mary Ann Metzger, Walter and Doretta Bratherton.


Ethen will always be remembered for his love of fishing. As a fan, he enjoyed supporting the winners in major league baseball and hockey. Playing the lottery was a given, but his true passion was video games.


Special thanks to Maria Boehm, Yessmean Elrafih and Joanne Zimmerman whose support was priceless. Many thanks, to the village of caregivers whose help was a blessing and lightened our load. We appreciate all the prayers given for Ethen and our family.
