November 29, 1968 - December 21, 2009
Ethan Daniel Schermer, beloved father, son, brother and husband, passed away peacefully at his home in Honolulu, Hawaii on December 21, 2009.
Ethan was born on November 29, 1970 in Tucson, Arizona. He grew up in Northern California, attending Valley Oak Elementary School in Davis and then Sacramento Country Day School. At age 13, he became a bar mitzvah at Congregation B'nai Israel in Sacramento. After graduating from Sacramento High School, Ethan enrolled at the University of California, Riverside. He later transferred to the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he earned his bachelor's degree in political science. In 1998, Ethan married his college sweetheart Sabrina Nguyen. Together, they had two wonderful sons, Max and Holden.
Ethan was a natural-born entrepreneur who started several successful businesses. He authored a book on the use and abuse of anabolic steroids, which sold thousands of copies worldwide. He created and marketed his own brand of nutritional supplement. He was also a pioneer in the burgeoning business of Internet domain name monetization.
Ethan was a true adventurer who grew up skiing the slopes of Lake Tahoe and, later in life, took to the ocean to become an accomplished surfer. Ethan also loved golfing and playing the guitar. But, most of all, he loved his two sons. He and the boys enjoyed trips to the beach, swimming, kayaking, hiking and family vacations.
Ethan is survived by his sons Maximilian Hoang Schermer, 8, Holden Michael Schermer, 5, and wife Sabrina Nguyen-Schermer of Honolulu; parents Dr. and Mrs. Michael and Rochelle Schermer of Sacramento and brother David Schermer of San Luis Obispo.
Funeral services were held on December 26 at the Nuuanu Mortuary in Honolulu. In lieu of flowers, donations may be mailed to the Sacramento Society for the Blind at 2750 24th Street, Sacramento, CA 95818. Please indicate donations are in memory of Ethan Schermer.
Birth is a beginning
And death a destination
And life is a journey
A sacred pilgrimage to life everlasting
Peace be with you, beloved Ethan.
