About Eric

Eric Christopher Altemus June 11, 1984 - January 11, 2012


Eric loved sports, exceling in soccer, he was a boy scout as a youth and he was a "Best Friend” to everyone he met. In Eric’s late teens he was an active volunteer firefighter with Christiana Fire Company.


Eric enjoyed boating, fishing, automobiles, 4wheelers, jet skis and spending time with his family at the farm. 


Eric faced several physical tragedies in his short life, but always did his best to work through them.


The tournament is a way we can remember Eric by doing one of his favorite past times while giving back to local community programs.


We know Eric moved on to a better place, but a piece of him lives on in our hearts.

The Tournament Team
Eric’s family and friends are the team responsible for the Annual Catfish Tournament. Together they created the tournament to keep Eric's positive energy alive through one of his favorite hobbies.  In Eric’s memory, the team is able to raise funds to benefit others in our community while sharing Eric's wonderful giving spirit.
