Eric John Johnson, 37, of Vincent, Ohio, died suddenly, Friday, July 7, 2017 at his home. He was born on April 2, 1980, in Buffalo, NY, to Stephen W. and Judy Bauda Johnson.
Eric recently graduated from Washington State Community College with an Associate's Degree in social work, and was board licensed as a counselor, social worker, marriage and family therapist.
