    I am so heartbroken for Connie , Caitlyn and the rest of Eric’s family. Eric was an amazing person and friend. I have such fond memories of him from college- Galloway Hall, Reddogs, WrightsvilleBeach. His smile could light up a room. I still remember the day he called me and asked for Connie’s phone number. Such an amazing love story.❤️ Rest in peace my friend. You will be missed.

    I spent several years of High School with Eric and Freshman year at UNCW in Galloway Hall as his roommate. LOTS of great stories with him and he ALWAYS had his friends' back. Whether he was driving his 2-door Cutlass in High School or on his surfboard at Wrightsville Beach, he was having fun and fun to be around. My life is better for having him in it and I was blessed to call him a friend.
