Loving son, brother, uncle, partner and friend passed away on Saturday, January 8th. He will be missed terribly by his amazing parents, Tom and Patti, brother and best friend, Jason and his wife, Shelly (“Sis” and partner in crime). He was the ultimate “Monkey’s Uncle” (Uncle eh- eh) to his nephew Spencer and nieces Hanna and Sophia. Later in life, eric was blessed to meet and plan a future with the love of his life, Nancy who welcomed him into her large family (as eric also did with his). He loved Nancy’s children, Cali, Katie and Cole. He thought of them and treated them as his own. Anyone who knew eric (he never signed with a capital e), knew that he had an enormous heart, always asking, “what can I do, how can I help”... His “colorful humor” will live on in our hearts. He will always be remembered for his immense love for his family, his amazing and spontaneous generosity, his never ending questions and pranks and massive love of technology - anything cool and exciting.
The Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, we are asking that donations be made in eric’s name to either the HunterTillmanScholarship.com (a special place in eric’s heart as Hunter was a part of eric’s extended family. He had the pleasure of supporting the fundraiser last year and had high hopes to continue to foster this amazing fund) or St Jude Children’s Research Hospital (also near and dear to eric’s heart).
