NOLTING, Eric Shanon

1974 – 2012

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Eric Shanon Nolting of Armstrong, BC at the age of 38 after a six month battle with cancer. Eric is survived by his lovely wife Shannon and two beautiful children: Brody, 4 and Ellie, 2; parents Erich Nolting Sr. of Key Largo, FL and Christa VomSchemm of Kelowna, BC; siblings Dennis of Yellowknife, NWT, Diana of Kelowna, BC, Lauren of New York City, NY, Syke of Edmonton, AB and in-laws Lennie Whitely & Tony Walton of White Rock. Eric was born June 10, 1974 in Yellowknife where his initial interest in flying began. He also spent many of his younger years in Cranbrook where he developed so many beautiful friendships. Eric flew all over the world until reaching his goal of a position with Air Canada this past February, operating out of the Vancouver base. Eric and family moved back to the North Okanagan where they were happy to call home. Eric has many loving friends and family over a broad area, all of whom will dearly miss his big warm heart, positive attitude and friendly nature. Eric’s continuous strive to always achieve his goals led him to a tactical plan to combat his disease. Eric’s spirit and determination was contagious as family, friends and strangers rallied with “Eric’s Army”, all helping in any way possible with some form of positive energy. The communities of the North Okanagan and Yellowknife are thanked for their involvement in fundraisers to support the Nolting family and Eric’s medical support from initial diagnosis onward. A Celebration of Eric’s Life will be held at Paddlewheel Hall, (7801 Okanagan Landing Road) Vernon, BC on December 8th, 2012 at 7:00pm. Shannon and family encourage all who knew and loved Eric to attend and share fond memories of him at this special gathering. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the trust fund for Eric’s children at Scotiabank with details to be posted on Healing Eric Facebook page. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at or at the Healing Eric Facebook page. Arrangements entrusted to:
