Eric was a 2007 graduate of Geneva High School. He was a Veteran of the U.S. Marine Corp., being honorably discharged this past January and currently was a reservist, serving two tours in Afghanistan.

Ludwick of Ontario; his grandparents, Willadene Whited of Geneva and Suzanne and Russell Elkins of Bonneville, Ky.; his honorary grandmother, Elizabeth Rose of Geneva; and a special cousin, Charles Whited of Geneva.

He was preceded in death by his grandfathers, Ronald G. Whited and Paul J. Ludwick; and an aunt, Bonnie Whited.

Funeral Services will be held 9 a.m., Tuesday, at the Spire Institute (rear entrance), 1822 S. Broadway, Geneva, with the Rev. Harry Pishcura officiating. Burial will be in Evergreen Cemetery. The U.S. Marine Corp and Geneva Post #6846 will offer Full Military Honors.
