He graduated from Haughton High School in 1999 and graduated from UL Lafayette in 2004. He was a devout Christian, devoted husband and father. He married an amazing and loving woman, Rebecca, who was his high school sweetheart and the love of his life for sixteen years. She remained committed to him and by his side throughout his life. Eric fought courageously for the past seven years, and never surrendered; he will be dearly missed.
Eric was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather Gilbert Stoffel, paternal grandparents Robert and Betty Jo Whatley, Uncles David Scott Whatley and Allan Stoffel and Cousin Josh McCoy.
He is survived by his wife Rebecca Whatley, son Mason, daughter Abigail, parents Terence and Leigh Whatley, Brother Brian Whatley and maternal grandmother Barbara Stoffel; as well as many, many aunts, uncles and cousins and friends.
