Eric was a true friend. I will remember we took out to Ohio to the Outlaws and down to Lernerville. Eric was one of the people I got to trained when I drove truck, we had a lot of great times. We grew apart over the years but anytime we saw each other he would always have a smile and a good word. See you later dear friend.

Such a good guy, he was so proud of his kids. I remember how excited he was when Shane started driving. At the time he had a really nice truck and most fathers I meet are hesitant to let their kids drive their nice vehicles. He couldn’t wait to see Shane drive his truck.

I am so sorry to hear of this loss....he sure helped create some great kids. I never met him, but Ryan, Shane and Krista have such big hearts and large laughs....I'm sure he had something to do with that. You will carry on his spirit.
