Celebration of Life for Ethan Jerad Hollander at the Alpine Community Center – August 3, 2019

Ethan Jerad Hollander was born on March 6th 1992 on a rainy day at Grossmont Hospital. He left us on a clear blue sunny day June 1st 2019. In those brief years he accomplished much as a child, teenager and young adult. He enjoyed Cars, Trucks, Motorcycles, Bicycles (Mountain, BMX and Skatepark) Skateboards, Scooters pretty much anything with wheels!

Ethan was a very talented person with a hard head and intense drive. He knew what he wanted to accomplish in life and was pushing hard to fulfill his dreams.

His personality was goofy, and outgoing in his personal life, and professional in his business life. He touched so many people that it floored me with the outpouring of support and emotional thoughts people had stated.

Our family would love for Ethan’s extended family and friends (who he treated as family) to join us for a Celebration of his life on August 3, 2019 from 11:00am until 3:00pm at Alpine Community Center located at 1830 Alpine Blvd, Alpine, CA 91901. There will be light foods (Ethan’s favorites Mexican, Italian) and drinks at the event. This is a public event for those who knew Ethan. If possible, we ask that you RSVP through the Facebook Event page HERE so we can get an accurate count for food & drinks.

Please join us as we remember the times, good and bad, funny and sad but all the memories that he gave us and he helped create!

Respectfully the Hollander Family. If you have questions please email Zack Hollander HERE

17 Year Old Granite Hills High School Star Student Athlete Killed in Accident in Alpine

Via (Watch video)

December 11, 2017 – Family and friends of a Granite Hills High School star football player were stunned and mourning Tuesday following his death in a traffic accident while returning from the team’s end-of-season banquet.

William Burton, 17, was killed shortly before 8:30 p.m. Monday, when the westbound vehicle he was riding in collided with an SUV on South Grade Road in Alpine, near the gated community of Rancho Palo Verde, according to school officials and the California Highway Patrol.

The teen died at the scene of the wreck, which left four other people with minor to moderate injuries, the CHP reported.

William was a standout defensive lineman who was recently named to the CIF All-San Diego first team defense. He also led all Eagles receivers and tight ends with 28 catches for 287 yards and four touchdowns.

One of his best performances came during a game against Steele Canyon in September, when he caught two touchdowns, including the game winner with 2.9 seconds left in the contest.

The Granite Hills senior, who also played baseball at the El Cajon campus, is survived by his parents, Bradford and Donna, and brothers, Jake and Zachary.

At the time of the fatal accident, William was riding in the back of a Jeep Wrangler without a rear seat, according to investigators. When the vehicle began to drift off the roadway, the driver, an 18-year-old Crest man whose name has not been released, yanked the steering wheel in the other direction, sending the Jeep veering back across the roadway, into the path of the oncoming Lexus SUV.

The resulting broadside impact ejected William onto the roadway, fatally injuring him, CHP Officer Travis Garrow said.

The driver of the Jeep and a front-seat passenger, a 17-year-old Alpine boy, were both wearing seat belts, Garrow said. Medics took them to Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego.

The 51-year-old Alpine resident behind the wheel of the Lexus and his passenger, a 13-year-old girl, were treated for minor injuries at the scene.

Intoxication was not believed to have been a role in the crash, Garrow said. ……Continue reading here

Memorial Fund Set Up for Family of Alpine Resident Kyle Cleavenger

Source: Go Fund me

“Sadly, we have lost another close and dear friend too early.  Kyle Cleavenger, our fun-loving friend  suddenly and tragically died on Saturday afternoon, May 27, 2017 at the river while celebrating another typical Memorial Day weekend.

Kyle and Andrea and their 2 children just finished dinner, and as they departed the restaurant, he unexpectedly was stricken with a fatal heart attack.  Aggressive efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.

We all know Kyle was one of the happiest people anyone could ever know.  He was always laughing and joking with everyone. Everyone that came into contact with him instantly enjoyed his presence.  He was always ready to crack a joke or sting someone with his piercing wit.  Kyle was a one-in-a-million kind of person.

Thankfully, Kyle has left us all with fond memories. But tragically, he also left behind his family to grieve and somehow go forward.  He and his loving wife Andrea were “buddies”, always together. Andrea and their 2 children, Brittnee and Shayne, are faced with this terrible loss and must somehow live on. Kyle was a wonderful husband, father, son, brother and friend.  Kyle, Andrea, Brittnee and Shayne were a close foursome, who now must somehow find the strength and wisdom to go on without Kyle.

How can we help?  What can we do in this terrible time in the loss of the “leader-of-the-pack”?

We can all share in taking food, drinks, love and support.  But Kyle’s family will be faced with many hard decisions, both immediate and long term.  It’s almost unbearable to make such decisions while suffering this loss.  There will be immediate financial demands on Andrea, Brittnee and Shayne.  Financial demands have already started.  We can help.

I am asking for your direct financial help in this Go Fund me account set up for Andrea.  I am sure Andrea values the love and support we give her, but let’s add to that love and support through a Go Fund Me campaign to help Kyle’s family.  It will take some pressure off Andrea.  Look at it as buying Kyle dinner, or a drink or a beer.   Please help Kyle’s family with a contribution. Kyle gave us great memories. Let’s honor him with support to Andrea.

As a friend to the Kyle Cleavenger family, thank you for any help.- Vanessa McMillin Butcher

Celebration of life for Kyle Cleavenger – There will be a reception immediately following at the Flinn Springs Inn, 15505 Olde Hwy 80, El Cajon Ca 92021. Food will be served at 1pm. There will be a no host bar and horseshoe tournament. *More info
