It is with broken hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved Eric Richard Spiece on August 27, 2020. Eric leaves an aching hole in his family and friends. Eric is the eldest son of Rick and Sharon, loving brother to Curtis (Tiffany) and Cameron. Funny uncle to Aubrey and Quinten. Lovingly remembered by Gillian. Eric was the beloved grandson of Arnold and Kathy Spiece of Vineland, and Ernie and Charlotte Chiola of Fonthill. He will forever be remembered by his many aunts, uncles, cousins and large extended family. His best buddy Forest will always be waiting for Eric to take him for his walk. Eric's true calling was being an Arborist and he would talk of trees to anyone that would listen. The same is true of hockey and his beloved Toronto Maple Leafs. Family and friends will be received at Tallman's Funeral Home, 3277 King Street, Vineland, ON, on Sunday September 27, 2020 at 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. Due to Covid restrictions, masks will be required to enter the funeral home and all physical distancing rules will apply. As well, a private family memorial will be held at a later date. Donations may be made to OGUTS (Ontario Growing Up Through Sports), a charity near and dear to Eric's heart.

You gave me your gear to climb my first tree in the industry and I am forever grateful. I loved working with you so much every day... every so often Snapchat shows me a memory of our days with Davey. We could talk about trees for hours, even after hours and would never grow tired.

You were so well spoken, and great with words. I usually didn't like being corrected, but never from you. I was always learning something from you.

You showed me the value of my relationships and convinced me to stick it out to transfer and be with my family. Bless you. Although I wish we could have made more memories together. I will never forget you.

Our condolences to your family.

We will always remember how competitive and fun Eric and Gillian were while playing family board games at holiday gatherings with Gillian's brothers and sister-in-law! It was a lot of fun. Of course, we will also remember the love he had for our niece and their boy, "Forrest." We wish peace for Eric, his family and for Gillian.
