He served in seven combat deployments and two humanitarian missions in different parts of the world, and was decorated with 2 Combat Medical badges, 1 Combat Infantry Badge, 3 Bronze Stars (one with valor,) and 5 Army Commendation Medals.
Eric had a hunger for learning, particularly about medicine and the effects of fear and stress on the human body and mind. He found his true passion in teaching and sharing with students his wealth of medical and cross-cultural knowledge. A faithful Dallas Cowboys and NASCAR fan, rock music and Jeep enthusiast, Eric loved to have a great time with his family and friends.
Eric is survived by his parents Bill and Ann, his brother Darrel, his wife Greta, his children Austin, Trisha, Alisha, and Katja, his grandson Carter, stepchildren Joshua, Dimitri, and Dante, nieces and nephews, and his dog Rocky.
