Eric passed away Monday, Aug. 26, 2013, from a bicycle accident. He was born Dec. 1, 1988, to Carvel and Gayle Anderson in Tustin, Orange County, Calif. His family moved to West Valley when Eric was three. His family moved to West Jordan when he was five, where he grew up. Eric attended Bingham High School and graduated in 2007. After graduation, Eric attended college at Utah State University. Eric was strong in his LDS faith and served a two-year mission in Lansing, Mich. He was a gifted musician who loved and lived to play his trumpet with the marching band at USU. Eric loved playing video games, in which he could immerse himself for hours. He loved the employees he worked with at Walmart. He loved his family so much, and we have always been so close. We love him dearly and he will always be with us. Eric was always willing to keep an open ear and help out anyone in need. He made sure he was listed as a donor and as a final gift made sure he could save others. May you enjoy riding your sister's purple bike in Heaven and playing beautiful music with your trumpet held together with duct tape.
Eric is survived by his parents, Carvel and Gayle, and siblings Rebekah (Willis) Carter, Wayne, Jonathan (Brighton), Heather (Isaac) Saldivar, Michael, James and Emily.
