During Eric’s 20 years of life, he and his beloved younger brother, Jastun, shared many adventures that will never be forgotten.

His parents Gabriel and Nicole Strickland and grandparents, Ron and Phyllis Hartfiel and Glen and Kem Strickland share the grief of losing someone at so young an age. Aunts and uncles, Tricia Lies, Scott Hartfiel, Shannon Ruth and Acquila Strickland will forever remember the engaging smile, deep dimples, great sense of humor and unforgettable laugh of this Green Bay fan. He will also be deeply missed by his extended family, Mary and Larry Skidmore, David and his boys, Ashlee, Bailey and Creed Skidmore, as well as his cousins Gavin, Brayden, Isabella, Jasmine, Riley, Lauren, Jordyn and Austin.

Eric, we love you, we miss you, and we pray that you have a sense of peace.
