Eric was born Oct. 1, 1991, in Georgetown to Henry and Debbie Arnett Harrison. He was a 2010 graduate of Fossil Ridge High School in the Keller ISD where he graduated 14th out of 470 students and was chosen for the Faculty Top 10. During high school, he played basketball and baseball and was a member of The Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He also sang in the choir and was in theater. He discovered his passion for theater and acting in middle school. This love of acting continued throughout high school where he was in the musical all four years and in numerous other plays. In his senior year, he was a Homecoming King nominee, Choir Student of the Year and Thespian of the Year. Eric chose to pursue his passion for acting and theater into college where he was going to be a senior at West Texas A&M University in Canyon, majoring in theater performance. He was in numerous plays and musicals and had the lead role last fall in Iphigenia 2.0.

Eric was on the dean's list one semester and the president's list for the last five semesters. He also received multiple scholarships throughout his three years in college. Eric was a devout Christian. His love for his family, friends and theater was only surpassed by his love for the Lord. He was very active in First United Methodist Church of Watauga and the youth group. For five years he went on the youth mission trips where he was a leader in doing the Lord's work that he loved. He had a way of making everyone feel important, making them smile and bringing joy to everyone whose life he touched.
