December 19, 1987 - April 20, 2017
Eric William Herlson passed away unexpectedly Thursday evening at his home in East Helena from natural causes. He was born in Butte on December 19, 1987 to Ed and Laurie (King) Herlson. He attended Butte schools, graduated from Butte High School in 2006 and also graduated from Montana Tech. Even as a very young child Eric was destined to be a mechanic because he could and would take apart and put back together nearly everything in the house. He was the youngest ASE certified master mechanic in the country and worked at Robert Allen Nissan in Helena. He enjoyed camping, hunting, fishing, especially ice fishing and was a collector of many things, especially old clocks. He was also an accomplished cook. Eric was known to drop whatever he was working on to help anyone with anything. His kind heart and generous spirit will be missed by all. Eric married Christi Flauding on August 20, 2016 in Helena and she survives. Also surviving are Christi's daughter, Shaylyn Miller and Tyler, their children Naomi, Alli and Anthony, Christi's son, Richard Deschamps, his parents, Ed and Laurie Herlson of Butte, sister, Brenna Herlson of Butte, mother-in-law, Peggi Bird of Prescot, Arizona, grandparents, Sydna King of Butte, Marj Lunn and Rick Miller of Great Falls, numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins including his very special cousins, Kayla Lacey and Kyle Best. Eric is also survived by countless dear and close friends. He is preceded in death by his grandfathers, Dan King, Bob Lunn and Lloyd Herlson. Memorials may be made to the Chelsea Bailey Animal Shelter.
