September 24, 2020
After a long, productive life well lived, Eric died peacefully with the love and support of Alma, his wife of 78 years and with his sons Levi & Enos by his side.
He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and uncle. Always pleasant, supportive, and showing his love for his family. He held firm to his principles and had great common sense. He mastered many skills in his life; working very hard for everything he ever had with the only desire to support his family. He was unselfish, patient, calm, kind, practical and logical. He loved to laugh and enjoy all that was going on around him- especially if it involved a dance floor. His happy place was outdoors- either working on his property, on the water or spending time in the woods, especially time spent hunting or having a mug up with his sons, Enos & Levi, and his nephews, Mack, Don, and Baxter. He felt blessed to see his grandchildren and great grandchildren grow up – Always letting them know that Pop loves you big!
It gives us comfort knowing he will rejoice seeing his daughter Vivian and his grandson Brian on the other side. A piece of his heart already went with them.
Our special thanks go to special family members, nephew Mack House & Eileen for the years of love, support and friendship. It has been most appreciated. A Special thank you to the Staff of Rufus Guinchard Health Center for the care and support now and over the years and thank you to the Staff at Lanes Northern Retirement Home.
He is survived by wife Alma, son Levi (Donna), son Enos (Beatrice), Grandson Leon (Suzanne), Granddaughters Angela (Bruce), Rayna, Allison & great granddaughters Sidney, Lauren & Libby. He was predeceased parents Levi & Pamela House and all of his large family of sisters & brothers, daughter Vivian, grandson Brian and son in law Fred.
A private family funeral service will take place on Saturday, September 26, 2020 at 3:00 PM. from St. Peter’s Anglican Church in Parsons Pond with Rev. Terry Rose officiating, with the burial will follow at the church cemetery.
