    Condolences to Eric’s family. I was Eric’s roommate at Mount Michael and can attest that Eric was always “one of the good ones” Honestly I wasn’t the easiest roommate at 17. Even at time I appreciated Eric’s patience and willingness to play along. He also bought my guitar and amp which is something I hope he continued to practice. So sorry for the pain this loss must be for Eric’s friends and family.

    Eric served his country and his community with his big heart. His smile, his laugh, and his caring will always be a reminder of how good we can all be. It is said a person lives on as long as they are remembered,. Eric has a long way to go and affect all of our futures.

    Eric, I am grateful I got to give you a big hug the last time that I saw you. You are reminding me of why we never take a day for granted, because none of us are promised another sunrise or sunset. Enjoy being with our wonderful Savior as you were hand picked by him and him only, to be the great person on earth as you are now in Heaven! Please watch over and protect us all that aren’t where we need to be to be handpicked…God Bless You and I am glad I was one of the lucky ones to know you.

    Eric was a great guy that I never got to work directly with but was always such a pleasure to visit with and share his positive, big smile.
    God Speed Eric
