Eric was born on December 30, 1985, son of Kevin and Debbie (Saari) Wickstrom. He was a graduate of Brillion High School, class of 2004. Eric married Stephanie Jenner at Trinity Lutheran Church in Waupaca, WI on June 7, 2014. Eric enjoyed his profession as a Journeyman Lineman. He was a member of IBEW Local 2150. He and Stephanie moved to California in 2017 to follow his dream and spend more time with his family. One of his favorite experiences was flying from the helicopters. Eric enjoyed the outdoors. Whether it was hunting, fishing, or riding ATVs, snowmobiles, or motorcycles, he was out there.
