On Sunday April 1, 2018 Eric (aka Fish, Ed, Eddie) Eldridge took his last breath of this life, a life he lived very well. He was surrounded by love with his girls at his side. He is joining his mother and father Betty and Chuck Eldridge as well as some of his very best friends; Billy Shaver, Ted Reinhardt, Shawn and Tommy Lynch, Bruce and Dean Brucato, Jimmy Bure and his buddy Frank from work.
He will be deeply missed by many, especially by his girls Casey & Leigh Eldridge, his step daughter Lacey Faison and his constant companion Gidget who never left his side.
He now watches over his grandchildren Mackenzie, Natilee, Michael, Grace, Taylor, Emma, Cameron and his little buddy Orson.
He leaves behind his sister Marsha, his brother from another mother Wayne his nieces and nephews Wendy, Eric, Billy and Jenna. Last but certainly not least, he leaves behind his good friends who loved each other through thick and thin. you were and always have been his brothers, Leigh and I have the Uncles to prove it. He loved you guys so very much, he would want you to know that.
Our dad, Eric, loved this life. He had so many great stories, he had a lot of fun while he was here. He loved the outdoors, nature, and animals especially Gidgy. He loved fishing, camping, boating, traveling, telling stories, cracking jokes, having a good time, drinking his Genny's and had a knack for driving you up the wall when the urge struck him. He was fun, funny, witty and smart. He had a life hack for almost everything so he could just enjoy time. I cannot fit my Dad into a book let alone a few paragraphs, but we will always remember him for his heart of gold, how much he loved us and the most beautiful blue eyes you have ever seen.
We love you DaddyO, we promised to live this life to the fullest. Bawk bawk, Cheep Cheep, Neigh Neigh, Moo moo, night-night.
If you would like to join his daughters, a celebration of his life will be held on Sunday April 8, 2018 at a place countless memories were made, GYF located at 1866 Colvin Blvd, Tonawanda, NY 14150 starting at 1 pm. Please bring any pictures or memories you have to share.
