Eric Jan Patow Obituary


My condolences to Eric's loved ones. This is a loss of a great friend and work colleague.

I went to high school and college with Eric and we were even roommates at State for a while. Gone too soon is an understatement. I am so sorry to hear about his passing and sincerely give my sympathies to the entire extended family.

I am so saddened by this news. I've known Eric for the last 3 years since I was one of his customers at FIT. Eric was a joy to work with and was always committed to our success. I also had the opportunity to get to know him other on a personal level as well. His face would light up when talking about his wife and his family. I know he love you all so very much. My thoughts are with you during this very difficult time.

Eric was a great friend. We played Pop Warner football against each other growing up, and later joined the same fraternity at NC State. He was smart, funny and always there when you needed him. Many great memories …..thinking of Tracy and his family. He will be missed.

I was so saddened to hear about Eric's passing. I was his
4th grade teacher at Speas School in W-S, NC. Even at age 9,
it was obvious that he would be successful in life. He was a very
kind and capable young person. It is sad to know that his life was
cut short. I send sympathy to his parents whom I remember well

Very Sincerely,

Eric was a devoted husband, father and friend. He was one of the most talented and hardworking individuals I’ve ever known (the sky was the limit). Some of my fondest memories of Eric centered on watching NC State games at the PNC and local establishments. It was here we would discuss life’s twists, financial investments, recent smartphone technology, current affairs, and politics while “solving the world’s problems”. My thoughts and prayers go out to Tracy and family during this difficult time.
