Erik was driving a Chevy Cobalt, his girlfriend was in the passenger seat and a neighbor boy and his brother were in the back seat. It was raining, they were right around the corner to his house when he hydroplaned and hit a small truck. This happened in the 3 o'clock hour the afternoon of Sept. 14, 2006. Erik loved God and was an Artist, he could draw and he designed several pieces of work. He also, loved motor cross sports and was very involved in racing! He was a very handsome young man who had lots of friends, he always had a ready smile and loved little children if there was a child around he was engaging in some type of play. Erik, is missed and always will be. His memory is kept alive from memories of the time spent with him and the many pictures/videos we have of him. Our love for him grows stronger and will not die. He is loved and missed by his parents, brother Mason, grand parents, many cousins, aunts and uncles and friends.
