Eric A. Berding of Charles City, Iowa died at the age of 39 on October 17th, 2017 while returning home to his family. A student of film and literature, Eric held a great respect for a good story. We are all the richer for having been part of his story in particular. His compassion and love for all around him gave him a larger than life presence. His laughter is the best song and his good nature puts everyone at ease. His strength allows one to walk taller and to be a more confident person. This beautiful soul is the absolute love of my life, my best friend, my Superman. “What do you say, wanna go around again? I do.”-Fry and Leela.
Eric is survived by his wife, Kenya Berding, his daughter Ivy Crowell, his brother Ryan Berding, his mother, Sabrina Gorman, his step-father, Ron Gorman, and his father, Lynn Berding as well as extended family across the South and Midwest.
