Eric stood for living life to the fullest and was a kid at heart. He was a loving and caring son, an unselfish brother, and a dedicated father who prioritized his two children over his career.

He loved to spoil his kids whether it was taking them to Marvel movies, on family adventures, or just enjoying quality time at home. He cherished his loving partner Shelia and together enjoyed cooking and traveling. Eric valued his many friends, especially the Garrett family (Tommy and Irene) and his childhood friend Matt Wolfe.
Eric is survived by his son Jace and daughter Clara, his partner Shelia Berdos, parents Werner and Renate Buchholz, brother Thomas Buchholz (Kim), and niece Elizabeth and nephew Andrew.
