Eric R. Ferdinand
Eric Robert Ferdinand, 30, of Fond du Lac, passed
away on Saturday, March 7, 2020. He was born on August 19, 1989 to Eric and
Clare (Dreifuerst) Ferdinand in Fond du Lac. Eric attended FACES and Fond du
Lac High School.
Eric married Lisa Koepsell on September 7, 2019 at
Holy Family Catholic Church.
He was currently employed at Buechel Stone and had
been recently promoted to Plant Manager after over 12 years of service.
Eric enjoyed hunting, fishing, golfing and watching
all Wisconsin sports. He played hockey for Blue Line as a goalie and also
enjoyed shooting pool. Eric loved spending time at the camper in Neshkoro and spending
time with his favorite dog and hunting partner, Shadow. Eric’s obituary
wouldn’t be authentic if we didn’t mention his crazy love for pizza, Crocs and
country music. He will be remembered always for his infectious personality,
generosity and iron will.
Left to cherish Eric’s memory include his wife Lisa,
parents Eric (fiancé, Ronda Smit) Ferdinand and Clare Ferdinand (friend, Roger
Qualy), brothers Luke and Stephen, Lisa’s mom Kathy Koepsell, grandmother Mary
Jane Sternat, other relatives, best friends Jordan Borgwardt and Michael Abhold,
and many, many other friends.
Eric was preceded in death by his grandparents Marvin
and Mary Driefuerst and Robert and Gloria Ferdinand, father-in-law James
Koepsell and aunt Nadine Ferdinand.
