We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Bryant-Grant Funeral Home and Crematory
Eric (E Rock) Urrutia passed unexpectedly Saturday 11 September 2021. Our family loss was purchased by his release to eternal glory in the new body he so deserved. Eric survived three open heart surgeries over his short life, then a debilitating stroke finally giving way to a failed heart. As a “service brat” he was born in Asheville and after living in many stations in the U.S. and overseas he came to rest in the mountains he loved, second to his love of surfing in Florida where he lived many years. Eric was full of life constantly looking for an opportunity to share his genuinely wonderful sense of humor as well as his love of family and most important his heart for all who needed to hear him laugh. Die-hard Dallas Cowboy and New York Met fan, he enjoyed a full repertoire of sports facts. Eric will be missed by many, and we all know he is waiting at the gate for the rest of us to catch up. Eric is preceded in death by his mother Belinda Peele Urrutia and survived by his father and “mom” Ron & Lee Urrutia, his sister and family Griffin and Kimberly Urrutia Lloyd, Caitlin Urrutia (and Brandon) Waite, step siblings, Justin (and Jill) Lloyd, Melody Lloyd, Gina (and Wes) Peer and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. All who knew and loved Eric are invited to a celebration of his life at Franklin Covenant Church on Saturday 18 September 2021 at 2:00.
