Eric D. Kersey

Share:

Eric D. Kersey, 27, of Bismarck, North Dakota passed away on March 18, 2024 at Sanford Health, Bismarck due to complications from pneumonia.

Eric D. Kersey was born on November 12, 1996. He arrived at the home of Vernon and Cleo Kersey as a foster child after a brain injury when he was 5 months old. Doctors felt they were sending him to the comfort of our home to pass away. Eric, however, had different plans, he stayed at their home and was adopted as a wonderful addition to the family.

He attended schools through BPS and had wonderful teachers through Grimsrud Elementary and Horizon Middle School and Graduated from Century High School in 2015. Eric lived at home under the care of his parents and family until February of 2023 where he was moved into Agusta Good Samaritan and received wonderful care.

Eric loved music, especially Spinoza. He loved hearing his moms voice as she sang “You Are My Sunshine”. He loved the warmth of the sun on his face and the birds chirping when he spent time with his dad on the swing.  Eric was an incredible person who was given to us to teach us unconditional love and acceptance.

Eric is survived by his parents Vernon and Cleo Kersey; his siblings, Doug, Pat, Cindy, Jeanine, Darren, Gail, and Cathy and their families.

In place of a memorial service the family has set up a Facebook page called “Remembering Eric Kersey” where you are able to leave a message, picture or a story to share with the community that loved him.

REVELATION 21:4 “AND HE WILL WIPE OUT EVERY TEAR FROM THEIR EYES, AND DEATH WILL BE NO MORE, NEITHER WILL MOURNING NOR OUTCRY NOR PAIN BE ANYMORE. THE FORMER THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY”.
I hope this beautiful promise of God to resurrect the dead here on earth fill your hearts with comfort, soon we’ll hug them again.

Cleo, Vern and all of Eric’s siblings and family: I will always remember seeing Eric in our church when you first had brought him to your home as a foster child and then adoption. I sincerely believe you and your family’s patience taught us all so much and many of us saw Eric in a different light and a SPECIAL human Being! May you all hold onto the good memories of Eric! With our sincere sympathy, and prayers, esp. in the days ahead! Jan & Gary Gilchrist

Sending condolences. I recall your wonderful family in church and school.
