Our beautiful Eric was called home to the Lord on June 13, 2010. Eric was a loving son and brother, but there was no role he cherished more than father. His love for his daughter Cionne was endless. He was never happier than when he was in her presence. His strong and inspirational spirit will truly live on in her. When Eric was younger, he enjoyed hiking in Sedona, skiing in Colorado, fishing with his dad, David, in Iowa and playing on the beaches of Rocky Point and San Diego. Eric always looked forward to boating on the weekends at Saguaro Lake. Eric especially loved all the attention from such a large and loving family. Eric is survived by his daughter Cionne Lonergan, mother Linda Black, father David Lonergan, step-father Rick Black, step-mother Gia Lonergan, siblings Brittany Black and Ashley Black, grandparents Rose Howard, Joseph Munos, Melbourne Lonergan, Vaudys Lonergan, Richard Black, Patricia Black and Anne Sposi, many beloved aunts, uncles and cousins, God sent best friend Belinda Daw and beloved friend Adrian Garcia. A heartfelt thanks to the loving staff at Scottsdale Heritage Court for their endless love and care during Eric's precious last years of life.
