Erik was a great husband and father. After serving in the Army for 22 years, he continued to serve his country as a government contractor training special operations personnel from all branches of the service and various government organizations. Erik helped so many people get through tough times by just being there for them. Erik had a great sense of humor and always made everyone laugh and smile. He could tell a joke and change his voice to make a story more interesting or to keep his students involved. Erik loved history, especially military history. He loved to read, listen to music and watch old movies. John Wayne was his hero. Erik was a trivia buff. He was my own personal google. Erik enjoyed taking off on weekends to go explore a different town, museum, restaurant or bar. He liked nothing better than a nice cold craft beer at the end of the day. Erik was the last person anyone thought would end his own life. He had a job he loved, a good marriage and two fine sons. Erik is missed more than words can say.
