Eric was born September 4, 1973, in Youngstown, Ohio, the son of Rev. Thomas Wesley and Carol Jeanne (Miller) McDermott. He had a larger than life personality, an infectious laugh, a beyond beautiful singing voice, and a fierce love for family, friends and all people.

Eric also had a close and personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and used his faith and his testimony to help those around him who shared similar struggles. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Augustana College, and most recently worked as a store leader for Kwik Trip in the Quad Cities.

Eric is survived by his father, Rev. Thomas W. McDermott of Davenport; brothers, Christopher (Kara) McDermott of Olathe, Kansas, and Joel (Amber) McDermott of Galesburg Michigan as well as 5 nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his mother, Carol.
