Eric Jerome Anderson, 52, son of Richard E. Anderson (Rick) and Sharon L. (Crockett) Anderson, passed away at his residence in Kimberly, Oregon on June 12, 2019.
He was born May 6, 1967 in Pullman, Washington. He graduated from Sunnyside High School in 1985. He attended college in Spokane, Washington. He was married to Amy Loucks from 1990-2008. They had two daughters, Erica and Lyndsee. He met Tammy Fields in 2008 and they spent from 2009-2019 building and cherishing life together.
Eric loved snowmobiling, camping, trucking, jeeping, poker nights, bon fires and knocking back a few cold ones with his friends and family. Eric spent his life doing what he loved and never did anything half way. And, if he was giving you a hard time, that meant he liked you.
