Eric Michael Boehner-Burklow Print E-mail

April 5, 1976-April 22, 2014

Eric Michael Boehner-Burklow, a 38-year-old young man with a kind heart, and gentle soul who lived for life, of Wisconsin Rapids, left this world after a long ordeal with lung disease, though this did not dissuade him in any way from being an organ donor. He returned to his Heavenly Father on Tuesday, April 22, 2014 at Meriter Hospital, Madison.

Eric was born in Cook Co, IL, on April 5, 1976 to Wayne and Barbara (Boehner) Burklow. Eric gave what he could in life; even after he moved on from this world he gave the gift of life to others. He had this uncanny and unwavering ability to care for, not only his clients at Harmony House, but also for anyone, and everyone that he met through life’s great adventure.

Eric wore so many hats that it is difficult to begin listing them. He was a son, a brother, a Godfather, an uncle, a teacher, a caregiver, an adventurer, a musician, a dancer, a friend, and so many, many more things. In short, if you knew Eric, you knew a beautiful man, and you know just how much he will be missed!

Eric leaves behind his mother: Barbara (Burklow) Peterson, Neenah; sister: Catherine (Earl) Burklow-Lewis; brother: Aaron Burklow, Stevens Point; a multitude of friends and family including a niece: Regan Burlow-Lewis, Clintonville; and two nephews: Ty Burklow-Lewis, Clintonville; and Evan Burklow-Lewis, Clintonville (Eric was also Evan’s Godfather).

Eric is preceded in death by his Earthly father Wayne Fred Burklow.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, May 3 at 2 p.m. at Leikness & Stahl Funeral Home, Plainfield. Officiating at the service will be Pastor Brian Roehrborn with burial to follow in Plainfield Cemetery. The family will greet relatives and friends on Saturday at the funeral home from 11 a.m. until the time of service.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial is being established and may be directed to the funeral home (P.O. Box 209, Plainfield, WI 54966), www.plainfieldfuneral
