Eric was born on March 17, 1957 and died peacefully on April 9, 2017. He moved into The INN Between on March 16, 2017 with a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. Eric had been living in permanent supportive housing, but as his health declined, living alone in his 3rd floor apartment was no longer a suitable housing option.
Eric was very optimistic and enjoyed being surrounded by friendly faces at The INN Between. He didn’t share much about his past, but we know he had lived in Reno and Lake Tahoe and enjoyed gambling. Eric loved to watch movies, play chess and go for walks.
Eric never married or had any children, and we have been unsuccessful in locating any family members. Due to the generosity of individuals who donated to our Cremation Fund, we were able to pay for the cremation and bring Eric’s ashes back to The INN Between.
We were honored to take Eric in as part of our family and care for him during his final weeks.
A community memorial service for Eric will be held on April 26, 2017, 11:00 am, at The INN Between, 340 S. Goshen (2040 West), Salt Lake City. A complimentary community luncheon will follow the ceremony.
