It is with much regret and sorrow that we again announce the passing of Retired Business Representative Eric Herfurth. Eric passed away on November 18, 2020. Due to COVID and the restrictions imposed his family delayed the memorial until it was safe for us to gather once again.
April 17, 2021 Local 85 along with the family of Eric Herfurth will host a Celebration of Life here at the Local 85 office in Atlanta and will provide a live broadcast of the memorial service at the Apprenticeship School in Augusta. The live broadcast memorial in Augusta will begin at 12:00 noon on the 17th.
In Atlanta from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 PM there will be a Celebration of Life gathering to visit with Eric’s wife Donna and their son Daniel. The memorial will begin at 12:00 noon in the union hall.
Local 85 extends this invitation to all of Eric’s friends and co-workers to celebrate Eric’s life. We’ll be sharing our favorite stories about Eric in an effort to lift the spirits of Donna and Daniel and all those that loved and worked with Eric. Our intention is to show that as long as we remember him, a piece of Eric will always be with us. Please come prepared with funny or uplifting stories about Eric so we can remember that it’s okay to smile through our tears.
