Eric was such a good person. Always wanting to please people and giving of all his to time and energy to do so. He loved his family and friends and would always be willing to give them the shirt off his back. Trucking was his life and he was always interested in the changing of the weather.
Eric , your family and friend love you and will always hold you cllose.
Mom ❤️❤️❤️

Eric was a gentle soul with a true heart of gold. Kind and generous, and always funny (I’m talkin’ hilarious stuff here! ߙ‚ It took him days to tell a story, just another charming side to this wonderful person I had the privilege to call my cousin and my friend.
Eric, we love you and we miss you. Heaven is our next venue for the most epic game ever of Cars N Monsters! Prepare thyself, Heaven!
Love you, Eric!! May God keep you and Bless you ~Mandy

We have known Eric and his family since Eric was about 9 years old. What lifelong friends Shannon and Eric were! Little boys who played for hours and grew up together. Eric was best man at Shannon’s wedding. Eric, you will be forever remembered and forever missed. – Jim and Debby Ventress, Shannon Jackson, Jaimee Duncan

Eric, you are deeply missed. You always gave 150% to everyone.You never stopped being there for anyone who needed someone to talk to. It took you forever to get to the point when telling a story, but thats what made you you. We had lots of great times together running up and down the road. You were always my local weather man. You always had an eye to the sky. I love you man. Rest easy brother.

Eric was a very good person. He had such a fire for God and always talked about concurring your struggles, being strong, and never giving up. He taught me so many things by being a bold brother and having conversations with me that are hard to have with your youngest sister. He always wanted people to have fun and enjoy life.
You were the best oldest brother and taught me all the hard things that kept me safe. I love you and I don’t know what life looks like without you, but you showed me how to be strong and never give up. I’ll never forget any of our memories. I love you

Eric, my person, I will forever love you. We just were out walking on greenway in Hendersonville and you showed me a lil off beaten path…and we found the old road: Calendar Lane! We had the best day and no doubt, God allowed that precious time for us.
I will love you forever. The kids and I will be okay, as we know you're up there watching over us w your dad and my dad, whom you finally get to meet!
I PROMISE I will continue to take care of our beautiful children as best as I can! Thank you for loving me.
To those who didn't know Eric, I apologize…probably for the best, bc once you met him you would be best friends!
Eric I'm still leaning on my fave verse: Proverbs 3:5-6.
Please watch over me and family. We are just waiting for you to walk in door and say, "hey guys!" and hug your neck!!!!!
You will always be around. I'll be looking everywhere for you, the sun, the rain, the wind.
Forever and EVER,
