Eric Rutowski Car Accident, Death – Yesterday, the world said goodbye to a magnificent spirit. An accident on a moped took the life of my sister-in-law’s brother. He was in the city that he loved, engaging in activities that he enjoyed. Eric was a one-of-a-kind individual. It is really challenging for me to put into words what Eric meant to me and what a great person he was in general. He had a way of making everyone feel SO privileged. He never singled out or ignored anyone.
He had a passion for travel and the great outdoors. Above all else, he enjoyed having a good time and making other people laugh. All of us were kept on our toes by his never-ending practical jokes. He would never, ever own up to participating in the practical joke. He found great joy in being able to take a step back and simply watch everything develop. Our hearts are completely broken at this dreadful news.
It is extremely UNFAIR that we are unable to carry out the many plans for the future that we had with him since we had so many plans. I am going to miss having him over here quite a bit in the future. Without him here, our lives are going to be missing a significant piece of the puzzle. The connection that Eric and I shared was quite profound. He was in every sense of the word the brother I never had. I love you so much, Eric. I am grateful for everything that you have contributed to my life.
