  • Steve and Chris Biondo

    Dearest Susan and Olivia,

    Chris and I are so very grieved at the passing of your precious Erik. Living in the first house in the Preserve for so long, we got to send him off to school with a wave or a hearty good morning. We also were able to see him come home and walk his way back home from the front of the Preserve. He was always a gentleman and kind. It was a joy to watch him grow over the years. Our hearts break for your loss.

    May God’s favor be over you both in this most difficult circumstance. May His love for you both and Erik comfort you and may He draw you close to Himself in your grief.

    Our deepest sympathy,
    Steve and Chris Biondo

    Eric was a vital member of the Howe Military Academy band playing tuba. His contributions were immense, and he greatly enjoyed the military and honor band opportunities he earned. It was my privilege to grow musically with Eric, and get to know his mother and sister through those experiences. The family is lifted up in prayer, and I hope Eric is now making heavenly music.

  • Ron Richter, and the Richter family

    Cadet Erik Yentz regularly demonstrated a willingness to step forward for the goal of the Howe Band and Drum Corps. He served music at Howe, leading by example with both school rank and servant leadership. More than that, he shared with us his warm personality. His value to the group as a part of its bass line and as a team player was crucial. He will very much be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

  • Adam M. Vickery

    It has been almost six months and not a day has gone by that I haven’t thought of him, he will eternally be in my thoughts. He left too soon, but the time we had together has left a life long impact. Him and his family is still in my prayers, his memory was just sitting heavy with me today so I thought I’d just leave a little something.

  • Isabella Shipley

    I was not prepared when I found out about Erik’s death. He was everybody’s friend. I don’t remember him having any “enemies” while I was attending Howe. He was loved by all and will continue to be loved by all.

    – “You are brave, you are strong, and you are loved.”

  • Kali Coppess

    Erik… you were such a funny guy who always could make me smile and feel better when I was sad. I miss you so much, rest in peace.
