September 16, 1972 ˜ September 23, 2018

Eric Dwayne Garren, age 46, of Vancouver, Washington, passed away suddenly from a heart attack on September 23, 2018. He was born on September 16, 1972 in Springdale, Arkansas to his parents B.W and Pauline. As a kid he was active in many sports and always gave 100%. In 1997, Eric received an Associates degree in Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology with Honors.
Later in life, he worked as a Journeyman Low Voltage Electrician in the Vancouver/Portland area. He was very meticulous about his job and expected others around him to do the same.
Eric was a big personality who enjoyed cars and pushing the speed limits. He always talked about how his brother and him helped their dad rebuild the ’55 Chevy (The Chevy was used to transport Eric to his final resting place after his memorial service). He loved to listen to music and attend concerts. He was an excellent photographer who would happily take photos of anyone and enjoyed taking scenic pictures. Eric loved to party and socialize with his family and numerous friends which typically resulted in long memorable nights. Also, he was able to fix or build almost anything he put his mind to. His last project was remodeling the outside of the family home. Countless videos were watched, so he could learn how to do everything to his standards along with asking friends how to do a task. He was proud of how the house was coming together.
Eric’s passing has left a whole in the hearts of those who loved him. He leaves behind his wife, Dee Garren; step-daughters, Tabitha (Maxwell) Amundson and Natasha (Conrad) Hoffstater; grandson, Oliver; father B.W. (Julie) Garren; mother, Pauline (John) Martin; siblings, Melissa (Roberto) Robles, J.D. (Erin) Garren and Katie Garren; brother-in-law, Raymond (Leann) Wilkins; and nieces nephews, Madison, Gabe, John Jr and Ellie; as well as many other friends and loved ones.
A celebration of Eric’s life was held on Friday, September 28 at St. John’s Presbyterian Church in Camas. A graveside service was followed at Fern Prairie Cemetery. The family would request, in honor of Eric, to take the time to focus on your health and get regular check-ups. Arrangements were in care of Brown’s Funeral Home.
