Eric David Pace, 40

Eric David Pace, 40, a native of Hendersonville, passed away on Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2014.

Eric was born in Hendersonville on March 20, 1973. He is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 15 years, Kelly Pace; his five beautiful children: Litz (22), Bianca (14), Emily (12), Corban (6), and Manasseh (3); his parents, Bruce and Melba Bell, David and Sherlene Pace; his parents-in-law, Charles and Cherie Price, siblings, Billy and Cricket King, Karen Pace, Matt and Amanda Pace, Shannon and Kristal Bell, Leroy and Rosa Price, Charlie and Leslie Price; along with many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Eric was preceded in death by his brother, Jason Bell and his grandparents, Mitchell and Betty Pace.

Eric was a very compassionate and faith-filled man. He was a loving husband and an adoring father. His main purpose and goal in life was to follow God's command in Micah 6:8 "Do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God." This was evident in his life at home, at work, at church, and everywhere he went. We honor and glorify Jesus Christ for allowing us the privilege of knowing and loving Eric before He took him home.
