It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Eben Simeon Statt, age 22. He was known affectionately as “Bear” within his family and will be remembered for his quiet demeanor, kind spirit, and infectious laughter. Keep reading this article to more detailed information about him.
Who was Eben Statt?
Eben was born June 16, 2000 in Hornell, New York to Michael A. and Jonna (Lambrosa) Statt. Eben was an avid outdoorsman who loved fishing and hunting with his father and brothers. Growing up in Versailles had allowed him to explore all the beauty that nature could offer including trips to Lake of the Ozarks and camping trips in Arkansas. His siblings remember him as always being ready for a good adventure or even a game of cards at home on rainy days.
Eben was passionate about music from an early age. His mother recalls how he would make up songs as a child while playing outside. As he grew older he taught himself guitar which he played often with friends or by himself in solitude to clear his head when life seemed overwhelming. Music brought him much joy throughout his life which we can only hope he continues to experience wherever he may be now.
At just 22 years old Eben had already started making plans for his future which included continuing education so that he could better help those around him who were struggling with addiction issues like himself. He felt strongly that no one should have to face recovery alone because it takes a village to make lasting change possible in this world we live in today.
