He was a graduate of Loveland High School class of 1976, and is remembered for his exploits as part of the track, wrestling, and football teams, both on and off the field. Eric served his country for twenty years in the U.S. Army as an air traffic controller, including spending a significant amount of time overseas in Germany, South Korea, and the Panama Canal Zone.

To his friends, he was a loyal and fun-loving companion. Eric enjoyed reading and going on adventures with the people he loved.
Eric is survived by his brothers Todd (Susan) and Mark (Rona), and his sister Kathryn (Bassam); his sons, Edwin (Megan) and Davis (Liliann); and four grandchildren, Liberty, Korban, Grace, and Verity. He was preceded in death by his grandson William, and by his parents, Frederic and Anne.
