Eric Boehner

April 5, 1976 — April 22, 2014

Eric Michael Burklow, a 38 year young man with a kind heart, and gentle soul of Wisconsin Rapids. He lived for life, but he left this world after a long ordeal with lung disease, though this did not disway him from being an organ donor. He has returned to his Heavenly Father on Tuesday, April 22, 2014 at Meriter Hospital, Madison. He was born in Cook Co, IL on April 5, 1976 to Wayne and Barbara (Boehner) Burklow. Eric gave what he could in life, even after he moved on from this world, he gave the gift of life to others. He had this uncanny and unwavering ability to care for, not only his clients at Harmony House, but also for anyone, and everyone that he met through life's great adventures. Eric wore so many hats that it is difficult to begin listing them; he was a son, a brother, a Godfather, an uncle, a teacher, a caregiver, an adventurer, a musician, a dancer, and a friend to name just a few. In short, if you knew Eric, you knew a beautiful man, and you know just how much he will be missed!

Eric leaves behind his mother: Barbara (Burklow) Peterson, Neenah; a sister: Catherine (Earl) Burklow-Lewis; a brother: Aaron Burklow, Stevens Point; a multitude of friends and family including a niece: Regan Burklow-Lewis, Clintonville; two nephews: Ty Burklow-Lewis, Clintonville, Evan Burklow-Lewis, Clintonville (Eric also is Evan's Godfather). Eric is preceded in death by his Earthly father Wayne Fred Burklow; an aunt Faye Brunson, his maternal grandparents Warren and Maxine (Nettis) Boehner; as well as his paternal grandparents Wayne and Mary (Hammil) Burklow Sr.
