On Sept. 2 at 6:35 a.m., Erik Francis Dowling went to be with his dad, Thomas, and brother Kevin. Erik passed away surrounded by people he loved — his mom, girlfriend, godfather, and his brother and sister. He is survived by his mother, Betty Dowling; sister, Sarah Dowling; brother, Joey Dowling; girlfriend, Kellie Alcantara; and his many cousins, aunts and uncles. Erik was an example of what “living the dream” was, even when he was fighting a difficult battle with cancer.
He was always able to make those around him laugh, even in his last days. The number of people who showed up for him is a tribute to how cared for and loved he was by so many.
We will celebrate Erik’s life Thursday night, Sept. 13, at La Cañada Country Club at 7 p.m. Mass will be held at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 15, at St. Bede the Venerable Church.
