Eric Christian Stachnik, our beloved son, passed away on Sunday, September 11, 2022. He was born in Rome, NY on June 11th, 1990 and attended Rome Catholic and public schools, graduating from Rome Free Academy in 2008.
He moved to Wilmington, North Carolina in 2010 and began a successful career as a sales manager. He was employed by Bring IT at the time of his passing.
He is survived by his parents, Holly Graziano and Mark Stachnik, stepmother Sherry Stachnik, stepfather Tony Graziano and sisters Morgan and Taylor, his grandmother Linda Stachnik, his Aunt Lauri, and uncles Mike Stachnik on his father’s side and uncles George, Ted and Rich Beel on his mother’s side.
He leaves behind many friends, including Andy Gaston and Nicole Grittner and friend and mentor Jim Farruggia.
Please take a moment from your day to remember him. His passion, sense of humor and infectious grin.
He enjoyed playing disc golf with his friends in Wilmington and he loved Buffalo Bills football. He felt strongly about many issues and would argue politics (in a good-natured way) for hours, if you let him.
He will be dearly missed by all of us who loved him.
There will be no calling hours. A celebration of life will be held in Wilmington, at a place and time to be determined.
