Ethan Hitt, 19, of Port Neches, Texas passed away on Wednesday, January 11, 2023, in Port Arthur, Texas.

Ethan was born on Misawa Air Force Base in Japan on March 3, 2003, to Pam Self and Jerid Hitt. Ethan loved learning about history and enjoyed teaching others as well. He and his family would go to the Renaissance Festival every year. Ethan loved animals and enjoyed playing video games and watching the Texas Rangers. He was the eldest of seven and was the “best big brother ever” as his siblings would say, always looking out for them and guiding them. He was always ready with a wonderful laugh and bright smile.
