Deborah, I am just hearing about Eric, “M” as I called him back in the day. He was such a good person. Loved working with, playing ball with and just hanging with him during work and at the ballgames. Continued prayers and blessings for you and the girls.

So sorry to hear about Eric. I have great memories of him in high school. Thinking of all of you
Deborah, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Eric was a solid man and good friend. We didn’t keep in touch as much as I would have liked to but every time I saw him in Amarillo when i would come down to Canyon he was always open to a hug and a laugh or two. He was a great roommate at WT and will be missed. Love and prayers to you and his family. Best, Joe Freddy Fierro

To Eric’s family:
I’m so sorry for your loss.
Eric was one of my favorite people growing up in Hereford, and mostly because of his good-hearted nature. We lost touch after high school, but seeing all of the accolades about him pouring in here and on Facebook, it’s apparent that he continued to bless many lives with his big heart.
Please accept our heartfelt condolences. May the God of peace be with each of you as you lay him to rest and celebrate his life.

Deborah, Richard and I are sending our love and prayers from Midland. Eric was one of the good guys!
Eric had a smile that went from ear to ear, he’d cry when he laughed and it didn’t take much. He found joy in the small things in life. I was beside him through kindergarten and high school and he was one of the GOOD BOYS! Deborah I am happy you spent many years with this one. Blessings to you and your family.
Deborah there are no words to take away the pain you are enduring. I can say that Eric could light up a room with his smile and friendly personality!! Prayers to you and your family! Hugs and love!
So, so sorry for your loss Deborah. I pray God will bless you and your family at this time and bring you comfort. Love you friend. Sending love, and prayers for you and your family.
There are just no words of comfort to share. I am so very sorry Deborah. My heart just hurts for you, your daughters and all of your family! I’m keeping all of you in my prayers. Cling to Jesus.
I have fond memories of Eric from the time he was a small boy through high school. My two sons, Donnie Anderson and Keith Anderson, were playmates and friends with Eric. Eric was loving and kind and he will be deeply missed. My condolences and prayers go out to his wife, daughters and all family.
Sorry for your loss. He was a great guy, and will be missed by anyone who knew him .
