SWANTON – Eric E. Christopher, age 54, passed away unexpectedly on January 18, 2021 at his home in Swanton.
He was born on April 5, 1966 in Bennington to Edward W. Christopher and the late Nancy (Bohannon) Christopher.
Eric was a 1984 graduate of Missisquoi Valley Union High School in Swanton and a 1986 graduate of the Technical Careers Institute in Windsor, CT. His career started with Governed Air of Vermont, followed to Air Comfort, and for the past 20 years, Climate Systems Inc. Eric was the technician everyone loved – his co-workers and his customers. He had a knack for bringing out a smile, and telling great stories. He loved ice fishing, deer hunting, playing golf, and most importantly spending time with his boys and family, which includes his best friends. He was a proud life-time member of Buck Fever and Team Horsehead.
He is survived by his two sons, Austin Christopher of Swanton, and Landon Christopher of Highgate and their mother, Anissa Christopher of Highgate; his father, Edward Christopher of Alburgh; siblings, Lori Barnard of Swanton, and Neil Christopher of Alburgh; and countless life-long friends. Eric was predeceased by his mother, Nancy Christopher; paternal grandparents, Bill and Anne Christopher; maternal grandparents, Oscar and Anna Bohannon; and his aunt, Jean Bohannon.
