Eric A. Paredes May 3, 1994–July 23, 2009
Eric was a healthy teen looking forward to being on the varsity wrestling team. An outgoing, energetic, charming young man who loved life, his family and his friends, Eric was known for his smile. He was passionate about making changes so that the world could be a better place. He wanted to be a police officer.
In July 2009, Eric was packing his suitcase to go on a much-anticipated family cruise. His mother left the house for an appointment and his father came home for lunch 20 minutes later. He found Eric collapsed on the kitchen floor and started CPR, but it was too late. Life changed that day, forever. Long Q-T Syndrome is suspected.
