His friends remember him:

A visual tribute from friend and past season contestant Brooks:

"He lived more in 32 years than most people do in 100. He was always on an adventure, always looking to build memories and meet new friends along the way. I'll miss having the opportunity to go on those adventures with him."
“He lived more in 32 years than most people do in 100. He was always on an adventure, always looking to build memories and meet new friends along the way.
I’ll miss having the opportunity to go on those adventures with him.”

FROM ERIC’s MOM:

    “Thank you for all the love and support you have shown our family. Many of you have asked how you can help. The best gift you can give our family right now is to let our son touch your life through the stories and pictures he’s left behind. Please take a moment to explore the many wonders Eric left for us to discover. #LIVElikeERIC”

And his legacy continues:
