Erik is a 1998 graduate of East Fairmont High School. He was Catholic by faith. He devoted over twenty years of his life managing the kitchen at DJ’s 50’s 60’s Diner. Although it was not his true passion, he was committed to the success of the family business. He recently worked at the Schooner Warf Bar and Restaurant in Key West, Florida. The love of Erik’s life was his daughter Sadie Grace Rundle, and he was committed to her more than anything. It was only until he felt Sadie was old enough that he followed his own dreams and headed south to the sun and sea of Key West, Florida. Erik was welcomed into a warm and accepting community of seekers and dreamers like him. He lived his best life there enjoying all the things he loved; the beach, taking his skiff around the island, fishing with his toes in the sand, sleeping on a boat and shots of Jameson.
