Obituary of Eric L. Pellerin

Eric L. Pellerin Saranac – Eric L. Pellerin, 39, of the Ore Bed Road, Saranac, passed away unexpectedly, Friday, May 8, 2015, peacefully, at his home. He was born in Plattsburgh, the son of Lawrence and Eva Pellerin. Eric graduated from Saranac High School. He was a member of the Sons of the American Legion Post 1619 in Redford, National Rifle Association and North American Hunting club. He also belonged to Big Daddy's hunting club. Eric was a member of Local 83 Sheet Metal Workers International Union for 19 years and was most recently employed with JW Danforth. Eric lived life to the fullest. He enjoyed spending time at his home with family and friends or at camp. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved hunting, fishing, the company of his friends, playing poker, playing pool and watching his favorite football team the New York Giants. He was the kind of man you could rely on for anything. To his parents he was a devoted son who was very loyal. To his siblings who he adored, he found much comfort in their company acting jovial. To his friends he became an ally for trust in their relationships. Eric was able to easily establish a good network of communication and work ethic among his coworkers, and was admired by his superiors. He was to his children a hero in their eyes. He enjoyed wrestling, camping, boating, bowling, finishing puzzles, riding the ATV to camp, and sitting by a fire to cook smores'. Eric gave the best hugs. To his wife he was the heart and soul of her life. He was truly her best friend. They enjoyed spending time listening to music, riding around the lake, and visiting and entertaining friends with jokes and laughter. He was loved dearly by almost anyone who crossed his path, "Depending on if he was in the woods hunting". He always thought that family came first and will forever remain true to that belief. Left to cherish his memories are his wife, Lisa Pellerin; daughters, Laura and Layla; parents, Lawrence and Eva Pellerin; brother, Larry Pellerin Jr. and his wife, Renee and their daughters, Carissa and Shawna; sister, Heather Brault and her husband, Robert and their daughter Kylee; mother-in-law, Sally Shusda; brother-in-law, John A.
