Eric William Schwocho 7/29/1954 - 8/8/2013 Eric peacefully lost his battle with liver disease at his father's home in Bakersfield, CA in the morning of August 8, 2013 surrounded by the love of his family. Eric was a graduate of West High School '72 and enjoyed many wild adventures with his buddies, especially Johnny Akers. He went on to receive his AA from Bakersfield College. He went on to complete Technical School in Fresno, CA which supported his career at Lightspeed Systems for over fifteen years. His position filled his life with many opportunities for himself and his family, including travelling the world and developing life-long friendships. Eric's life can be summed up by going fast, he was an adrenaline seeker. He loved racing cars, skiing (snow and water), surfing, biking, fishing and anything that kept him busy. One of the more thrill-seeking adventures he went on was when he snow skied, water skied, and surfed all in one day with his son. A true California adventure! Eric was a loving, patient father and friend who brought laughter into the hearts of those he touched. He took great pleasure in sharing his passions with others, teaching those to snow ski and water ski. Eric was a strong man that could build and fix anything. His strength and smile will never be forgotten by those he left and his friends. Eric was proceeded in death by his wife Judy (separated) and mother Geraldine (Jeri honey) Schwocho. He is survived by his daughter Whitney; husband Clayton Pearsey and daughter Reese; son Jared Schwocho and family, and daughter Myriah and husband Dusty McKenzie and sons Calum and Briggs; father Ken Schwocho; sister Lisa and husband Gary Hupfer; and sister Jill Schwocho.
