Eric never had a doll moment, always laughing and joking with his kids. Eric always had a helping hand. Anytime anyone needed anything, he would always go above and beyond for those in need. Sometimes even if you weren’t expecting it. You will be loved and missed Eric. Rest In Peace good sir. Continue to help those in need and help them laugh just as you did us.

While my parents did not have any other sons, I was blessed to have three brothers growing up. Even though Eric already had two younger brothers to look out for, he never seemed to mind having to add another.
As my big brother, I learned a lot from Eric. That said, the most important thing I learned was to always laugh... no matter what you face. Even in adulthood, Eric reinforced this with me. Our last time together was over lunch. His body was not what it once was, yet, through all this, Eric laughed. He laughed more in those couple of hours than I probably had in that whole month.
Eric, thank you for being a great brother growing up. I promise to laugh more no matter what life throws at me.

Eric was a wonderful loving father to his kids it breaks my heart Eric that the time was cut to short. His kids were his world. But the kids know their dad is up there watching over them.
