Eric J. Arbour

ROME – The family of Eric J. Arbour are heartbroken to announce his passing on July 28, 2022, at his home. Eric was born in Augusta, Maine, on Sept. 22, 1983.

Eric was a much beloved father, son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, and friend. He was known by those closest to him as a loving, funny, and caring man. He was a fierce protector and friend to all those in his circle of family and friends. One of Eric’s special gifts was what was referred to as the “baby whisperer.” He was lovingly known as Uncle Eric not only to the children in his family, but also to those of his friends, possessing a unique ability to soothe and quiet the fussiest of babies. A gift that he has seemingly passed on to his children.

He will be remembered not only for his kind and loving heart, but his smart-aleck sense of humor as noted in countless stories from his friends. Eric was an avid sports fan who possessed statistician level knowledge of all sports teams. Aside from spending time with family, his favorite hobbies included fishing and RC car customizing and driving. His greatest joy in any day was to spend time with his children, whether in person or by phone. His smile and hugs will be greatly missed by all. We are confident that he will continue to be on the sidelines, cheering and supporting his children in all of their life’s endeavors.

Eric was predeceased by his father, Richard J. Arbour; his maternal grandmother, Theresa Vigue; and his paternal grandmother, Bertha Arbour.

He is survived by his mother and stepfather, Gail, and Timothy Labbe; his children, Tragan, Bradyn, and Cheyenne Arbour; his brother, Heath Arbour and sister-in-law, Danielle; his nephew, Anthony; and nieces, Ella and Kinsley Arbour; as well as aunts, uncle, cousins, and dear friends.

There will be a celebration of Eric’s life held from 5-7 p.m., with words of remembrance to begin at 6 p.m., on Tuesday, Aug. 9, 2022, at Lawry Brothers Funeral Home located at 107 Main Street, Fairfield, Maine. We request that all of Eric’s family and friends join us and may be willing to share stories of remembrance.
