September 18, 2005 ~ July 25, 2021

Born in: Tacoma, Washington
Resided in: Duluth, Georgia

My angel, Eric Sydnor Shaw was born September 18, 2005.

Eric was a young fly guy, who liked to dress well and play his Xbox. Eric was a real history buff and enjoyed watching history movies.

Eric was a real joy to be around, and he touched the lives of all that he knew and met. Eric had the most mesmerizing eyes and at the age of 15, Eric was already beyond his years, much of an old soul with a heart of gold.

He dreamed of becoming a famous shoe designer; and would have been a great one; his artistic abilities were like no other. Eric was also very gifted and talented in football and basketball.

Eric was a prince in his own right; and would have given anyone the shirt off his back.

Eric was loved very much and will be missed greatly. His life and memory will remain lovingly forever in the hearts of many.

Rest well my son until we meet again.

Eric leaves to honor his life and memory; His loving mother, NaStassia Williams; two sisters, Mica and Gabriella Rankin; his Nana, Pamela Grinnell; his great-granny, Lucille Grinnell; one aunt, Michelle Jones; one uncle, JaMeel James; two great-uncles, Michael Grinnell, and Ed Grinnell; seven very dear cousins, Esheila, Rayshell, Hania, Amaya, Jermaine, Malcolm, and Mischi Grinnell.
