Story from the Quilt:
Erik was a kind, thoughtful, and determined young man. He loved God, friends and family and relentlessly pursued helping others. These attributes provided the framework for his success at work and in his personal life. Erik was a deeply spiritual man.
Erik also enjoyed sports, most notably soccer and golf. He helped coach youth soccer teams and played on adult teams as well. On the final weekend of his life Erik participated in an annual golf tournament in Alabama with close friends. At the group’s Saturday night dinner Erik choked on food and could not be revived in spite of aggressive attempts to save his life. He died at the age of 37.
His family and friends continue on with heavy hearts. Erik, we miss you, we love you, and we will see you again one day. Congratulations on your birdie on your final hole!
