Our beloved son, husband, dad, uncle, brother and friend, Eric Peterson, age 33, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, April 7, 2022.
Eric was born on January 16, 1989 in Ogden, UT to Dennis and Sharon Peterson. Eric moved to Rocklin, CA. when he was 3 years old. As Eric grew, he made many lasting friendships with his outgoing personality.
Eric met the love of his life, Ashlee, when they were only 17. They soon became best friends and were inseparable. They enjoyed many adventures together. They loved spending time with friends and family, hiking, and creating lifelong memories. Eric and Ashlee were married on November 6, 2009. Their first daughter, Marlee, was born in October of 2016. Eric was anxiously awaiting the birth of their next daughter, due in July.
Eric had a passion for life and those he loved. He was devoted to his family and friends and told them often how much they meant to him. He made space in his big heart for everyone he knew. He was a loyal friend who cared and connected with everyone he met and if anyone was in need, he would give them his full attention. His greatest calling in life was being a good dad. His daughter Marlee was his world, and he was her superhero. Eric was very proud of his wife Ashlee and her many accomplishments. He loved to have lively debates with family and friends, and he sincerely felt he could change the world for the better. He impacted each life he touched with his love.
