Eric Matthew Nerison, 10, went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, November 17, 2004 in Des Moines due to injuries from being struck by a car. Services will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, November 22 at Capitol City Baptist Church. Burial will be in Laurel Hill Cemetery.

Eric was born in Des Moines and had lived here his entire life. Known as the "Bald Eagle" to his friends, he was a Fifth Grade student at Phillips Elementary School. He attended Fellowship Baptist Church and was a proud member of the AWANA club at Urbandale Baptist Church. Eric enjoyed watching the University of Iowa Hawkeye and Green Bay Packers Football teams play, but he would root for any team playing. He was a true "Boy" who played Bey Blade and Yughio, went camping and fishing with his family, and spent time at the Iowa State Fair and Adventureland with Grandpa. He was a Bright Light that brought joy to his family and friends.

Left to celebrate Eric's memory are his parents, Gary and Sharon Nerison of Des Moines; brother, Geoffrey and sister, Jessica Nerison of the home; grandparents, Charles and Bobbie Nerison of Cedar Rapids and Larry and Marianna Bennett of Runnells; great-grandmother, Faye Huffine of Corydon; two aunts, Debbie (Joel) Etherton and Lynn (Matt) Johnson; two uncles, Tracy Nerison and Brad (Kerry) Bennett; and many other family and friends.

The family will receive friends at Grandview Park Funeral Home on Saturday from 3 to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 3 to 5 p.m. Memorial contributions are directed to the family in care of Fellowship Baptist Church 1503 SE 6th St., Des Moines, IA 50315.
