Ethan Michael Pajalich, 15, of Moosic, left to join the angels on Friday morning with his mom and grandma by his side at Geisinger, Janet Weis Children’s Hospital, Danville. We know he already earned his wings because he was an angel here on Earth.
Born in Scranton on Dec. 27, 2000, Ethan was the beloved son of Laura L. Pajalich and grandson of Beverly Ann Gronski. Ethan was of special needs and they devoted their lives to him, trying to keep him comfortable as health issues developed throughout his life. Ethan’s mother was told by many doctors that he would not have lived this long, but for the special care she gave him. The Gift of Life will also be given as Ethan’s heart valves are being donated and someone will see what Ethan could not see through his eyes with the donation of his corneas because of the kindness and generosity of his mother.
Ethan was loved and adored by all who knew him and will be greatly missed, leaving a void in many lives.
Ethan is also survived by his maternal grandparents, Vincent and Joyce Pajalich; uncles and aunts, Mark and LoriAnn Pajalich, Lee and Caitlin Pajalich, Vince, Joseph and Tony Pajalich, and Brett and Nicole Millett; cousins, Jake, Alyssa and Cameron Pajalich, Sam, Matt and Anna Millett; half-sister, Kristen Murray; great-aunts, great-uncles and cousins.
Ethan was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, James and Karen Murray; and uncle, Jerry Gronski.
The family would like to thank Geisinger Wyoming Valley ER, Geisinger Lifeflight, doctors, nurses and all who cared for Ethan at Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital PICU, who were so kind and caring. Also, a special thanks to the nurses and staff at Interim Health Care, who loved him and became a part of his family.
A blessing service, to be celebrated by the Rev. Scott Sterowski, pastor of St. Paul of the Cross Parish, is scheduled for Thursday at 11 a.m. in the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home Inc., 517 N. Main St., Old Forge. Interment will follow at SS. Peter and Paul Cemetery, Taylor.
Relatives and friends may pay their respects Thursday from 10 to service time.
