Eric was preceded in death by his parents and one sister, Linda Elaine Hack.

Professionally, Eric worked as a supervisor with KBR, Inc. at the BASF Plant in Palmyra, Mo.

Away from work, Eric was an adventurer, whether flying his plane, taking a motorcycle trip on his Harley or riding his ATV, Eric was always in search of a thrill. He enjoyed his “toys:” some of his favorites were his Camaro, “Bumblebee,” and his yellow Corvette. A talented contractor, landscaper and electrician, there wasn’t anything that Eric could not do. He was always working on improvements to his house and this usually meant numerous trips to his second home, Lowe’s.

Eric enjoyed the peacefulness that came with lazy sun-filled days on the beach. He enjoyed numerous trips with his wife, Shelly, and other family to Jamaica, Mexico, The Gulf and The Dominican Republic. Most of all, Eric cherished the time he shared with his family. He was so proud of his children and there was not anything he enjoyed more than being a grandpa.

Eric was a Methodist by faith.
