Tate, or Tater as most the family called him was born on March 8, 2017, the son of Chance Ehret and Katelynn Schwindt in Miles City, MT. Baker was his home all of his life.
Tate “Tater” blessed his family, friends and his community for only four short years, but the impression he has left on the hearts of so many is forever. Being a little boy through and through he loved the earth, never missing a chance to explore all it had to offer him. His curious, adventurous and fearless nature lead to a million questions… that he always expected an answer to. Like a true gentle and kind soul he and his Grandma Dawn always said his favorite prayer, “Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep” making sure everyone was included and always ended with "The End". There was not an animal that Tate did not love, dogs, horses, ducks, cats etc. Tate was smart and funny beyond his years and his quick wit and charming looks were his trademark. He was loved by so many and gave his love to all he would meet so easily. Tate was his father’s mini-me and loved to do anything daddy was doing, which included breaking horses, so he thought. Grandma Dawn was his favorite person and his time with her was priceless. He was lucky to have a special relationship with his siblings. His big “Brobber” Ayden was also his best buddy. Tate always looked forward to spending time playing together. He was known to be very protective of Ayden. Being in the country with Nana and Papa was always an adventure for Tate and he was so happy there. His mom’s favorite trait was how funny and silly he could be. He brought smiles to all who were around him.
Tate leaves behind so many that love him, his parents, Chance (special friend Dani Vine), Katelynn (special friend Stephen Kidd); brothers, Ayden Schwindt, Connor Kidd, Camryn Kidd; sister, Brooklynn Kidd; grandparents, Dawn Ehret, Clint (Daryll) Ehret, Apryle Schwindt; great-grandparents Tim and Kathy Schwindt; great-grandmother Lillian Case; numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
He is preceded in death by sister, Aireanna; great grandparents, Bill and Iris Zeuschner, Jake and Olga Ehret and many cousins
