He graduated from Long Branch High School in 1985 and attended Rutgers University. He worked for the Navy Base, Lakehurst Air Force, and recently as a sales representative for Value City Furniture.
Those of you who knew Eric well experienced his wit and humor and the frequent "Oooooh Donna!" He loved spending time with his family and friends and he enjoyed old movies and music, especially Diana Ross. His presence and love will be truly missed.

He was the uncle to Martina Eason (Terrance), Justin Harper (Naheelah), Amaris Harper, Raquel Aiello (Michael) and Faith Munford.
