Eric was a such a kind-hearted, funny man. He had a presence about him and we shared fun times at Aggie Roundtable!

Glen A Everhart says:

Was very saddened to hear about Eric passing. Our sons grew up together and we spent many hours watching Parker and Luke play basketball together. Two things Eric always had, something aggie on and a big smile. He will be missed by all who knew him.

Julie Feaster Howell says:

I remember Eric from high school as a kind and loving guy. You just knew he was one of the good ones. He was always cheerful and funny. I am so sorry for your loss. I will continue to pray for God’s comfort and grace to surround your family.

When I think of Eric I think “what a good soul”. Always a smile on his face, very welcoming and yes always an “Aggie”! He will be missed by many. We are heartbroken about his passing but know he is with our Heavenly Father and we will, especially his family, one day again be reunited with him. Prayers to the family.

Shain Chapman says:

I am so shocked and sad to learn of this! My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Eric and I were roommates at Texas A&M both on campus at Aston Hall and at an apartment complex. I vivdly remember standing in that apartment with Eric watching the tv when the Space Shuttle Challenger blew up after take off. I feel that same sense of shock now.

I have so many good memories with him and our small group of friends. Road trips, here and there, including a memorable one to South Padre. Always good times, and he always had that smile on his face. What a great guy. He will be missed by so many.

Janet Doggett says:

Eric was the type who made every feel like his friend. I knew him in high school. I didn’t know he was at ATM University, the same time I was. But it fits: his goodness, his loyalty, his positive outlook on life. Godspeed Eric.

Ragle family,

My name is Robert Diesel I’m a chef from Miami with LSG,

I’m sorry and sad to hear of Eric’s passing, I worked with Eric since he started with LSG Sky Chefs, we would only see each other a few times each year over that 10 year period during presentations in Dallas or Miami, Eric was my friend and coworker. Each time I would travel to Lsg HQ I would always walk from the test kitchen to Eric’s desk to say hello and catch up with him. I enjoyed his smarts, quick wit and his wonderful sense of humor. I was friends on Facebook with Eric as well, it seemed like each time I opened the app he had another photo of a new place he traveled to with his family.

I will miss Eric

Robert Diesel
