AUBURN—Eric S. Niswender, 59, passed away unexpectedly at his home on Sun. (Nov. 3, 2019). Eric spent 25 years at Owens Illinois, where he made many friends and was very well liked by everyone. He also loved the outdoors and was an avid hunter for many years of his life, making the newspaper more than once for his “trophy bucks”. Eric was known for his tall tales, jokes and vivid imagination. His dream was to move to Alaska where he would build a cabin and “live off the land”. Eric will be remembered for many things.
He is survived by his daughters, Autumn, 30 and Karyle, 24, Niswender of Auburn; 4 grandchildren; 3 brothers, John, Leonard and Duane and a sister, Vicky.
Eric was predeceased by his parents, Marlene and John Niswender.
Come share his remembrance with us from 5 to 6 p.m. Mon. (Nov. 11), at the Brew Funeral Home, 48 South St. Auburn, NY 13021.
