Eric was a faithful and loving husband and a father of two beautiful children. He leaves loving parents, an adoring sister and nephew.

Eric was first and foremost a loyal son, husband, father and friend. His family was his number one priority. And once you became Eric's friend, you remained his lifelong friend. His thoughtfulness was unsurpassed, and there are many personal stories of his generosity from the more than 700 attendees at his memorial service. From his early years on, Eric was a regular Pied Piper, charming all who crossed his path with his insatiable wit. He inherited his love of laughter,kind heart and adventurous spirit from his parents, Renee and Sam, who share in his widespread "fan club."
The Stahlman welcome mat was always out, signaling a gracious reception for visitors from near or far to his house or theirs. My favorite memories are of the times spent with Eric and his family. Eric's wife, Blanca and children, Allison and Jacob, were his pride and joy. There was always a sparkle in his eyes when he spoke of them. I know he wants them to be brave and carry on his legacy. Family and friends will be comfort and support for them forever.
Eric, we love you, and you remain in our hearts and on our minds forever.
