    Eitan Pallu Force was a light to his family, his friends, and everyone whom he met. Eitan excelled in academics and sports, first, at The Epstein School and, then, at The Weber School.  He passed away, on September 21, 2022, while doing one of the things he enjoyed the most—playing football; a captain of the team, he had just thrown a touchdown in the team’s senior-night game.  Eitan also loved music and travelling, having visited Israel, England, Italy, Spain, and, most recently a family trip to Hawaii as well as many visits to New Orleans to see family.  Recently elected to the National Honor Society, Eitan had a wide array of academic interests, which he planned to pursue in college.  Eitan was born on January 9, 2005 and leaves behind an adoring family and many friends.  Although born and raised in Atlanta, Eitan enjoyed rooting on the New Orleans Saints and Pelicans with his father, mother, and brother, Asher.  Throughout his too-short life, Eitan never stopped challenging himself and, in doing so, motivating those around him. Eitan’s superpower was being able to make everyone around him better.  Eitan is survived by his father (Dr. Seth Force), mother (Dr. Sara Marder), brother (Asher), grandparents (Robert Force and Arnold and Carol Marder), and many uncles, aunts, cousins and two Chesapeake Bay Retrievers (River and Rocky) he trained with love.  Graveside services will be held 1:00 pm, September 23 at Arlington Memorial Park with Rabbi Joshua Heller officiating.  In lieu of flowers, the family asks that those wishing to honor Eitan make a gift to The Weber School in his memory.  Dressler's Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999

    Dear Sara and Family, I just wanted to tell you how sorry I am for your loss and let you know I'll be thinking and praying for you. Your son, although I never met Eitan, sounded like a wonderful boy, and I cannot imagine the pain with his loss. I am just terribly sorry. Sending love to you all. Sincerely, Megan Fisher

  • Petr Spurney

    Seth and Sara - I am so sorry for your tragic loss, and selfishly for me I'm also sorry that I never had a chance to get to know the obviously bright and accomplished young man Eitan had become. Please accept my deepest condolences and try to look to all the great memories and contributions he made during his young life as you endure. Lastly, I pray that in the near future you find some enlightenment that can give understanding to and comfort from your grave loss today. With all my love. Petr

  • Coach Johnathan W Hall

    It was a pleasure to be Eitans' Football Coach. He was an exceptional young man whose work ethic was phenomenal. Eitan not only bought into what we as a team wanted to accomplish but he brought other teammates with him through his actions and words. Watching him and Asher compete against one another at practice and then on game day being a 'Force' to reckoned with on defense was something wonderful. I could truly tell they had a deep brotherly love. He loved life and made people around him want to be a better person. I will truly miss his smile after a great win, but mostly I will miss seeing how his friends, teammates, opponents, and strangers reacted to his unique way of handling both positive and negative situations. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and Weber community during this time of sadness and loss.
