He was a Boy Scout, attaining the rank of Eagle Scout in 1969. He was the first in his troop at St. Peter to do so, and one of the youngest to attain the honor at the time. Eric also loved to watch old Westerns and read science fiction and comics. He was a devoted husband and father and a good friend to all who knew him. Survivors include his wife; his children, Rachel (Azael) Salgado, Nathan Johnson, and Hannah (Brian) Dunn; and grandchildren, Caylee Boblett and Connor Dunn.
