Ethan was only 21 years old when his life was tragically cut short by a fentanyl-pressed pill. His story is an example of how “one pill can kill.” Ethan was kind, light-hearted, funny, compassionate, and he touched so many lives in 21 years. He was always smiling and his laugh was truly infectious. Hockey was his passion and he was a team captain and role model for many of his peers. The loss of Ethan shattered the hearts of our family and those in our community. He is honored every year with a memorial hockey game and golf tournament. Ethan is forever loved and missed by his friends and family.
Taleah Janae Gould Passed away in May 2021
Location: Oakland, CA
My daughter, Taleah, passed away from fentanyl poisoning in May 2021. Taleah was the most beautiful girl inside and out. She had such a kind spirit. She always wanted to help others from feeding the homeless to charging up her lunch account in school for the kids who didn’t have lunch money. She truly was genuine in her actions. She also was very intelligent, she was in the gifted program in elementary and middle school. She enjoyed playing in her school band and attended Awana at church. I miss her so much! Her spirit will forever live through me and I will be her voice and spread awareness on the dangers of fentanyl. Love, Taleah's Mother + Grandmother
