Eric K.Taney, 19, of Cape Coral passed away Wednesday, Aug. 4, 2010.
He was a loving son to his mother, Michelle Taney of Cape Coral, and to his father, Frank Taney, also of Cape Coral. He was the loving companion to Jamie Lynn Hand and her son, Ryan; brother to Ryan Taney (Christina Trier); grandson to Kalman and Patricia Dolgos; and grandson to Barbara and the late Cornelius Taney; a nephew to loving aunts and uncles; and a great friend to many.
A champion for those who struggled with life's challenges, Eric was hoping to begin college this fall to become a counselor. He always saw the good in everyone no matter what their station in life. He also had a wonderful sense of humor. He brought laughter, joy and friendship to everyone around him.
An avid guitar player and singer, Eric was talented and loved to entertain. He wanted to travel more after being to Europe and hoped to go back soon. More than anything he loved his family and the family he was starting for himself. He leaves behind a void that will never be filled and we all will miss him dearly.
The family received friends the past Monday, at the Gendron Funeral and Cremation Services Inc. A mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated today, at 10:30 a.m., at St. Andrew Catholic Church in Cape Coral.
