Paxton Ryder Tarabochia passed away suddenly at the age 19. He was a young man full of life and will be greatly missed by many.

Paxton was born in Puyallup, Washington on February 14, 2000 to Derek and Shanda.  Paxton went to Graham-Kapowsin High School. He left school to start his career of becoming a fisherman in Alaska, it ended shortly after as he could never get his sea legs. When he returned to Washington he started working as a roofer with the local union. Paxton loved anything that included the outdoors, fishing, hunting, riding his quad and snowboarding. He always looked forward to the family annual trip to Dunefest.

Most importantly, Paxton had a deep love for his family, and cherished the time they would spend together. His best friends included his father Derek, cousins; Nick and Jimmy. Paxton loved his little   sister Payton, he was known to take her to the mall or out dinner often. She adored Paxton and always called him "Brother". His brother Kingston and Paxton, played video games, shot hoops and enjoyed just hangin' together. Sweet Maddi was Paxton’s love. They have been together since 6th grade.
