Mile #11 Eric
Eric M. Paxtor Carrillo was granted his angel wings on November
14, 2017 at the tender age of 13, after enduring a difficult battle
fighting acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Eric spent his final days at NOVA
Children’s Hospital surrounded by his family and friends, engulfed in
Eric was born on August 16, 2004. He was a resident of Fairfax County
and attended Luther Jackson Middle School, and completed the 7th
grade in 2016.
Throughout Eric’s school years his favorite subject was always science;
likewise the latest TV show that he most enjoyed was Lab Rats. Eric also
enjoyed reading his favorite book series “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” and was
a fan of the Walking Dead comic books.
As a young man, Eric had many talents; he was a local expert in building
anything and everything with Legos, he loved to spend time with his
cousins playing video games together, he also had dreams and aspirations
to be a world famous videographer on You Tube.
Eric was always very close with his family, especially his grandparents and
his aunts, but he was inseparable from his mother. He always enjoyed
walking with and following her, so often that she liked to refer to him,
lovingly, as “My Shadow”.
Eric’s most cherished and treasured talents would most certainly be his
infectious smile and his loving, caring nature. He touched many people
throughout his short, yet very memorable life. His smile alone could
brighten any room he entered and will never be forgotten.
