He was husband to Lisa Deidiker, whom which he shared a love filled marriage for nearly 40 years.
Born in Las Animas, CO on Leap Year Day, 1960 to Lila and Everett Deidiker. He grew up in Northglenn, CO where, his friend and brother-in-law, George Molson recounts, “they raised hell” on a weekly basis. By trade he was a brick mason. He started his own company, E.L.D. Masonry, in 1999 where he would build a reputation as “The Little General”, crafting perfect stonework projects for the most beautiful residential homes in Denver. Eric and his family moved into his dream home in Brighton, Colorado in 2008 where he would spend hours of every day creating and tending to his beautiful yard. It was his favorite thing to do. Most of all he was a generous provider for his family, whom he devoted his life. He lives on through, and will be remembered most, by all the advice he liked to give about money, gardening, and home improvement.
He is survived by his wife, Lisa, children Crystal, Brent, and Danny, siblings Carolyn Elliott, John and Mark Deidiker and their families, and parents Everett and Lila Deidiker.
