Rest easy old buddy. You always brought a smile to my wife Denny and kept everyone laughing and smiling during our Dupont days. No one can ever replace you as you have left foot prints that no one can fill or follow. What a pleasure to have known you. I expect to see you at Heavens Gate with the Father of all resting in his open arms with that great sense humor you always kept. May God Bless You Eric as you begin your new journey.

Losing a love one in death is one of the hardest trials we could ever experience. I hope you find comfort just like I have from the words found at Isa. 41:10 "Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify, yes, I will help you, I will really hold onto you with my right hand of righteousness." God promises us that he will strengthen us when we are weak now and end all causes of suffering in the future, including death. (Rev. 21:3,4)

So very sorry to hear of Eric's passing. I will always remember our times at Falling Creek and Meadowbrook. I'm glad I got to see and talk to him again a few years ago. Rest in Peace, my friend. I'll see you again one day.

You have always been so special to our family, Eric. You were the first visitor to come see our baby girl, Amanda, when she was born; you taught her to ride a horse and held her close when we lost her daddy, Steve. You wrote her wedding song and sang at her wedding. We have other wonderful memories with you both here in Richmond and in Floyd. Our hearts are heavy but we rejoice in your new heavenly home and will see you there. We will always hold you close in our hearts and are grateful to have had you in our lives.

Our hearts are broken at the loss of such a precious friend and neighbor. We are going to miss Eric and his middle of the afternoon calls or visits, his just a thought facebook posts, his smile and his friendship. We didn't make it to the memorial but its not because we didn't care, quite the opposite actually. Please let us know if we can do any thing. Lester and Judy Weddle

There are no words to express how so many of us feel about the loss of Eric. His thoughtfulness and love for others knew no limits. Blessings to all who know and love him and when we think of Eric it will bring a smile to us all.

How heartbroken I was to learn that Eric had passed away. I will never forgot how he and "the boys" visited Mama so many times while she was in the nursing home. What smiles they brought along with them. And, then, how he spent her whole last day at the hospital with us before she died. Eric was a good person who loved God and showed it by the way he loved those around him. I imagine there were lots of hugs waiting for him as he entered those Pearly Gates. Thank you, Eric, for a life well lived.

Eric and I started at DuPont Jan, 23, 1979. I found him to be a wonderful person. We had some great parties even got stranded at the beach together. We both left town and lost contact for a few. We ran across each other many times over the years. Eric visit me in Richmond in 2012. I visit him 2013, 2014, and 2015 in Floyd. So many people are going to miss You Man!!!
