Online Obituaries for the Troy, Royal Oak, Clawson & Shelby Township MI Area

Eric was a bluesman through and through and even had a license plate that read BLUESMN to let everyone know.  He taught himself to play the harmonica as a teenager and he played amazingly well!  His stage name was “Wulffman” which most people recognized him by.  He wore a belt that held 13 of his harmonicas which he used to play different songs.  Eric played in several bands including Blind Tiger, Automatic Slim, Hardtailz and Hard Candy, which involved Steve Farmer from the band, Amboy Dukes.

Eric worked installing granite in homes and commercial buildings for 18 years.  He could work tirelessly all day long but have a renowned energy in the evening to jump up on stage and jam with his harmonica.  Eric was very passionate about his music and he never stopped chasing his dream of becoming a Famous musician.  He had an awesome opportunity to play on stage with Larry McCray and Magic Slim at the Boston Blues Festival 2011 in Boston, MA.  Eric also had the pleasure of seeing B.B. King live front row at the Fox Theatre.

Eric had already envisioned his soul mate and drew a picture of her before he met Anne on May 30, 1996 and they married on August 28, 2004 at the Renaissance Festival.  He enjoyed the Renaissance Festival and that era of time.  He was knighted there before they got married so he could be Anne’s knight in shining armor.

Eric had a big heart that he wore on his sleeve.  He was always in good spirits even though he was in so much pain.  Everyone will always remember his laugh and silly jokes he loved to tell.  He was also a huge fan of the Cincinnati Bengals football team and owned every imaginable piece of fan gear with their team name and logo on it.  He always made a bet with his older sister Sherrie every year on who would win the Super Bowl, which Sherrie usually won. 

Eric loved his niece, Arianna and nephews, Christopher and Don Anthony whom he loved spending time with and just adored so much.  Eric became a kid again playing and laughing with them from the time they were born.  He even gave them both a harmonica and played for them and with them.  He always spoke about teaching them how to play as they grew older.  Eric always told them to blow and make a lot of noise.

Eric also had two step sons, Christopher and Tony.  When Eric visited Christopher in Texas, Christopher made an effort to dedicate his trip to all the things that Eric enjoyed.  Christopher took him to the Dr. Pepper factory where he received a certificate and a bottle of Dr. Pepper syrup.  Eric never went anywhere without his Dr. Pepper.  Christopher also took him to the Renaissance Festival there.  Tony  walked his mom through the Renaissance Village and presented his Mom to Eric with his blessing at Eric and Anne’s wedding.  When Tony introduced Eric as his step-father, Eric was so proud and honored that Tony thought of him that way.  Eric admired Tony’s spiritual side and kindness.

The open-hearted, loving, trusting little boy was always there as he grew to a teenager, a young man and an adult husband, step-father and uncle.

Whether it was playing his music, installing granite or caring for his family, friends or even strangers, Eric lived to serve others. He often talke to his Dad about how proud he was of the high quailty work he did for people.  Eric took pride in serving others well, just as Jesus, as a carpenter and a teacher, came to give us the ultimate example of love, kindness and service.  Eric truly let God into his heart.

Eric, we love you dearly and will deeply, deeply miss you.

Paul Gramer and his staff were responsible for making my father’s funeral exactly as my mother wanted it. They were attentive to our every need. Their support was a source of great comfort at this difficult time.
