Killed by gun June 29, 1998, at age 18

Eric was the youngest of three brothers and one sister. Eric was friendly and outgoing. He loved people and people loved him. Eric’s greatest love was for his mom and nieces and nephews and God, and a special brother, Kevin. Eric loved basketball. His hobbies were singing rap and dancing. Eric loved computers and wanted a career in computers.

Eric was a high school graduate of twenty days when his life was stolen from him. Eric was excited about going to junior college and was looking forward to taking his driving test. Eric is greatly missed by me, his mother, his dad, and a host of family and friends.
