Ethan Lowell Prevatte, 21, of Bladenboro, left this world too soon on Saturday, June 25, 2022. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Tommy and Doris Carter, and aunts, Vicky and Catherine Smith. Ethan is survived by his mother Cheryl Carter (Henry) of the home, father Steven Prevatte of Evergreen, brothers Hunter Prevatte (Lillie) of Bladenboro, Dylan Harden of the home, paternal grandparents James and Kay Prevatte of Evergreen, Aunt Sandra Taylor of Bladenboro, nephew Houston Prevatte of Bladenboro, several cousins, and his fur baby, Fancy.
Ethan was a loving and caring young man with a big heart. He adored his family, especially his mother. He was a “Momma’s boy” for sure. He was also a very proud first-time uncle to his nephew, Houston, who he held for the first time only days before his death. Ethan was always doing little acts of kindness, always putting others before himself. His final act of kindness was as an organ donor. Ethan not only loved people but had a soft spot for animals, especially dogs and horses. He loved to grab a fishing pole, a Yoo-hoo and sour candy and set out to fish for the day. You could always hear him coming down the road and you always knew when he was leaving. Like most young people, he enjoyed a loud sound system and enjoyed installing them. His family always knew when he had left the driveway at night because he usually took out at least one of the solar lights. Ethan enjoyed life and had the ability to bring a smile to everyone’s face. His sense of humor and his ability to love big will forever be remembered.
The family will receive friends on Saturday, July 2, 2022, from 6:00 until 8:00 pm at Bladen-Gaskins Funeral Home. A Celebration of life service will be held on Sunday, July 3, 2022, at 3:00pm at Bladen-Gaskins Funeral Home with Rev. Kevin Kinlaw officiating. Burial will follow in Singletary Cemetery in Butters.
The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the New Hanover Regional Medical Center Trauma Unit and ICU Unit for all the love and support given to them during this most difficult time. They would also like to share the National Help Line for Mental Health and Substance Abuse 1-800-662-4357 to help those in need of assistance.
