Eric loved to spend time with family and he would do anything to help family in anyway. Most recently he enjoyed helping the homeless, his knives, guns, working on cars, and fishing & hunting with his grandfather. He loved the outdoors. There were many wonderful aspects to Eric’s life.
And in many ways Eric touched our lives. My brother in all these ways and more, he made our lives richer and fuller.
Now that he has passed away, of course there is emptiness and pain, confusion and maybe even anger at death coming to a man of only 41 years, but in many ways, the gift of Eric’s life is still here with us.
He lives on in our memories and stories, and in what all of us have become because of him.
So I encourage you to share –today, tomorrow and in the years to come- your memories and stories,
and to share the pain of your loss as well. In this way we will keep the gift of Eric’s life alive.
He will be remembered as a Wonderful Father, Son, Grandson, Brother and a Great Friend to many, Uncle, Great Uncle, and Cousin.
We will be holding a Celebration of life for Eric for family and friends June 15, 2019 soon to be announced location.
