I worked with Eric at MTU. Always kind and made sure he said Hello if we passed in the hallways. I pray that Eric has found peace.

Would just like to send my condolences to the family. I was a classmate of Eric’s in high school and just wanted to say Eric was always kind and good to me.I will always remember the intelligence and his ability to solve some of the toughest tasks. I haven’t seen him in years but was just asking about him with a fellow classmate over Thanksgiving. . My heart goes out to his family . .

My Prayers go out to the family, I knew Eric from the days at Dill Company in Janesville.
I know he fought the depression and anxiety problems when I worked with him than. I always was impressed with his skills to build and fix things, and Eric was a very good Custom Applicator at Dill Co. Rest In Peace Eric.

To Eric's family, I am so sorry for your loss. I remember Eric well. He was an underclassman of mine but always said hi to me, maybe because i always said hi to him. God has gained an Angel now and He will take very good care of Eric. May God bless you in these hard times.
