Erik Kristopher Esmon
Erik Kristopher Esmon, 28, of Rector, Ark., left this world in September, 2017. He was born February 3, 1989, in Phoenix, Ariz. Erik graduated from Rector High School in 2007. He loved hunting (especially shooting the turkey his grandpa had followed for four days), being outdoors, going barefoot (even though his Gma was always telling him to get his shoes on), and having good times with his family and friends.
He was baptized as a young child at Blooming Grove Baptist Church and as a teenager was a member of the Rector First United Methodist Church Youth Group where he had some wonderful youth leaders that helped guide him through the teenage years.
He leaves behind his daughter, Alexis Esmon of Rector; his grandparents, Shawn and Patsy Young; his mother, Rhonda Jones; a brother, Richard Bowker; a sister and brother-in law, Samantha and TeJay Hopper; a nephew, Elija; his uncles and aunts, Scott and Melanie Esmon of Murray, Ky. and Ronald and Gloria Esmon of Phoenix, Ariz.; cousins, Telisha, Scotty, Meghan and Ronnie II; along with Great Aunts, Uncles, and other family members and friends.
Visitation was held from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 2, at the Irby Funeral Home in Rector.
