I didn't know Eric personally but am told he was an avid listener of my music. I wish peace to everyone who was close to Eric during this incredibly difficult time. I understand he was an incredibly sweet individual who touched a lot of lives.
Eric was such a great friend to our boy, Drake Hancock . To his family, we pray that you are comforted by knowing his quiet, gentle and loving spirit is in a safe and beautiful place until we all meet again some day.
God bless you sweet Eric.
There was nothing better than having Eric's incredible insight and words of wisdom on something. He was such a joy to be around and I'll always cherish our times together and I'll never forget his words of encouragment when I really needed them. So blessed to have such a wonderful friend in my life. My love goes out to the Johnsons.
Peggy my heart goes out to you. I did not know this young man but have followed your comments on Facebook. He was someone that was very important in your life and I know what it is like to lose that. May God Bless you. You will be in my prayers.
I remember playing Super Nintendo with him about 12 years ago when we were kids..This is terribly shocking news. I'm very sorry for your loss.
My heart and prayers go out to all the family and friends. Eric, you will be deeply missed and fondly remembered. I will always think of you when I see sun peeking through the clouds. Fly high my friend.
Deepest condolences go to your family. May your faith and trust in the Almighty sustain you at this time. Psalm 146:4 & Eccl. 5:9, 10
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow..and always.
Kim, I am so sorry for your loss. As is the rest of Dr. Cherry's office. We will be praying for peace for you and your family during your time of sorrow. God bless....
I will miss seeing Eric at CMHS. Eric was a very nice and kind young man.
God needed an angel and he called Eric to be with him.
My thoughts and prayers are with Eric's family.

To all of Eric's family. I am so sorry to hear of your passing. My thoughts and Prayers are for your Family at this sad time.
To all Eric's family and many, many friends, I send my heartfelt condolences. I was privileged to have taught Eric for a couple of years at Saint John's and so enjoyed his wit, charming peronallity and his dry humor. I miss him and am saddened by what I know would have been great future.
My love and prayers for you all,
Sister Pat Rhoten, osu

I am grateful that I was able to meet you. For the people that knew you, you made their lives that much better.
Eric, we didn't talk much, but you were a good person. I know as well as everyone else you're in a better place.
Peggy, so sorry for your loss. Prayers going up for the whole family.
Always loved and forever missed
To the Johnson Family,
I wish to express my condolences to you as you endure this great loss. As a mother and grandmother myself, we don't always have to know a family to have empathy for them when they loose a loved one in death. Also, our loving Heavenly Father is the "God of all comfort" and he can and will help you through this difficult period because "he cares for you".
I can't remember a time I saw Eric when he didn't flash that dimpled smile. I have a feeling as time goes by, Peggy and Kim, you might notice funny little signs that he is watching over you and still making you laugh at his antics!
Peggy and Kim I am sooooooo sorry for your loss. This has to be so hard for your whole family. When I met him he was such a nice young man. I am in shock and saddened by this news..........God bless you
My daughter attends CMHS. We are so sorry about your loss. Our prayers are with Eric's family and friends.
You were an amazing guy, Eric. I miss you dearly.
It was a joy to watch Eric grow up at First Lutheran Church (altar boy, etc). Always a smile, sometimes questions or comments, curious, never a "bratty" kid. Everyone loved him. He brought much joy and happiness to many. We have many wonderful memories. My prayers to the family during these difficult days.
I am glad I had the chance to know Eric in confirmation and our youth trips to Lutheridge. He was a great guy and his presence made the group better. He was often very quite but when he spoke it was worth listening to. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. I am so sorry for your loss.
Our Eric was such a blessing to this family! He truly was a beautiful person!
So sad to hear this. Eric was a special person and I'm glad I was able to have known him. I will keep you all in my prayers. Love you all.
You will be missed by many,,,, Rest in Peace my Young Man. Our Prayers and Thoughts are with you all during these saddening days and weeks a head of you. Love Ya'll
I remember our classes together. How you always made me smile. I will remember you for ever and you have made a big impact in my life and how I live it. Thank you for letting me know you.
Our family was truly saddened by the loss of your precious son, Eric.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I attended SJB and CMHS with Eric. Though I personally was not super close with him, he had a way if being friends with just about everyone. Prayers from the Ryan Family
I am so sorry for the loss of such a vibrant young man. Please know that your family will have the support and friendship of the Magnet High parents, teachers and students, both now and in the future.
May your faith keep you strong during this most difficult time in your life. Eric is free now but the pain of his absence will be felt by many for years to come. Remember the many happy times you spent with him and keep his memory alive by staying close to his friends and family. Eric was a great young man and will be missed by many.
Remembering your great love story today and always.
