Eric Ericson cremation and memorial

Eric Ericson, a beloved brother-father-grandfather,  was hit by a car as a pedestrian while walking home  and tragically passed away in the evening of 12/11/2020 in Galesburg, Illinois. he leaves behind His mother, brothers and sisters, and  two daughters, Erica Ericson and Ashlee Ericson, and grandsons Gunner, Bodie, Colton, Kohen, Bradley. We (Ashlee and Erica) are humbly raising money for the cremation and final arrangements of our father. He will be at Hurd-Hendricks in Knoxville, Illinois with a viewing for immediate family before his cremation and then we make the final journey home with our father to Georgia. His remains will be spread in the lakes and rivers he enjoyed fishing, the mountain tops of Georgia he raised his daughters in, and the extraordinary places that he belongs. Daddy enjoyed hunting and fishing, artifact finding, spending time with the grandsons and his family. I have never met someone who didn’t like my father, he had a heart of gold. He told me he put his love life on hold to raise his two daughters with no other influences and he just hopes to live long enough to see his girls married and happy... we love you daddy, I’m not okay, and I won’t be any time soon, I know you are with uncle Phil and Ronnie and cousin Leigh and everyone who has passed on and cathching all the big fish in heaven 53260990_1607876110737341_r.jpeg
