Eric Anderson, Christmas 2010

Eric Jerome Anderson, 52, son of Richard E. Anderson (Rick) and Sharon L. (Crockett) Anderson, passed away at his residence in Kimberly, Ore. on June 12, 2019.

He was born May 6, 1967 in Pullman. He graduated from Sunnyside High School in 1985. He attended college in Spokane. He was married to Amy Loucks from 1990-2008.
