Eric radiated enthusiasm for life, and his dazzling grin could brighten any space. Eric was enthralled as a young boy by the adventures of Indiana Jones, the films of the Star Wars franchise, and eating peanut butter & jelly sandwiches. Eric received his diploma from Eldorado High School in the year 1990.
