Eric Joseph Leis
February 16, 1969 – June 13, 2019
ERIC JOSEPH LEIS was born on February 16, 1969 in Baker City Oregon, the son of Leonard Joseph Leis and the late Dorothy June (Crouch) Leis. Eric was named Baker County Historical Society’s annual “Valentine Baby” for 1969. He and his proud parents were presented with a gift from the ladies of the historical society and were written up in the local paper. Eric was a native Oregonian and lived most of his life in Washington County.
Eric graduated from Sunset High School in Portland, Oregon in 1987. Eric was a self-taught handyman and a jack-of-all trades. He could fix or build just about anything and was always willing to help out anyone in need. Eric was a Commercial Production Manager for Icon Construction located in West Linn, Oregon. He loved his job and those he worked with.
Eric has two sons, Jordan, age 20, and Tyler, age 17. His sons were his pride and joy and he was an amazing Dad. He coached youth football and soccer and enjoyed snowboarding, camping and trips to the beach with the boys. Eric was an avid Oregon Ducks fan and he and the boys loved to watch the Ducks play in Eugene at Autzen Stadium. He was also a loving second dad to Kayla Triplett and Madison and Isabelle Hernandez.
Eric loved to hunt and went on many “Leisboy” hunting trips for elk, deer and pheasant. He also loved to fish and crab and enjoyed boating in many Oregon lakes and rivers as well as ocean dory fishing with his Dad and older brother. Eric loved the outdoors and felt at peace whether he was in the rugged country of Eastern Oregon or the serene beaches along the Oregon Coast.
Eric was proud of his recently completed Hood-to-Coast Relay with a work team from Icon. It was quite an accomplishment for someone who had never run a major relay race. He also enjoyed learning how to paddle board, and was loving weekend adventures exploring small towns across Oregon with the love of his life, Meka.
Eric was the type of person that left you smiling. His upbeat, exuberant personality was contagious and he made the world a better place.
Eric is survived by his sons, Tyler Leis of Tigard and Jordan Leis of Lake Oswego, his father Leonard Leis and stepmom Linda Leis of Sheridan, his sister Shell Brady and brother-in-law Kerry Brady of Beaverton, his brother Bob Leis and sister-in-law Jurrae Leis of Tigard, his brother Matt Leis and sister-in-law Carina Lea of Vancouver Washington, nephews JT Leis of Spokane, Josh Leis of Vancouver, Washington and Jaden Leis of Tigard, nieces Molly Brady of Oregon City, Jaeyln Leis of Tigard, Kieran Lea of Vancouver and Kiernan’s baby sister to be born in September. Eric is also survived by his partner, Meka Scotchler and her daughters Isabelle and Madison Hernandez. Eric was preceded in death by his Mother, Dorothy June (Crouch) Leis.
