Unfortunately, Eric passed away this morning. They know some answers as to why, but are looking further into it for other health reasons. Everyone is shocked, but doing ok. Let us all keep family and friends in our prayers.

I graduated with Eric and we were good friends through school. I had'nt had much of a chance to talk to him in a few years but he was a good guy. Way too young. I heard that he had a 4-wheeler accident a couple weeks ago also. Don't know if it's true or not. It just ain't right for a man to die so young. My prayers to his family.

I used to hangout with Eric and its very heart breaking to hear of a close friend passing away. I dont know what it is about Saltville and Rich Valley that the younger people die, well its drugs for most but what I knew of Eric that wasnt the case in his passing. My prayers out to his family.

I didn't know Eric, but his father Joe was a close friend of mine. Joe had problems, but he also had as kind a heart as you will ever meet. I miss him too!
