I randomly thought I’d google Eric & see what came up with the absolutely foolish hope I could find a way to get a helmet to be restored that I’d sent with him over twenty years ago while I was a new E-3 & came up with this obituary. I thought some may just be curious to know. Definitely chalking that one up now. He looked pretty similar to what I’d remembered. I hadn’t realized he’d relocated not far from me.

Eric Clifford Grigsby, age 49 of Lenoir City, TN passed away on Sunday, May 23, 2021 at the Loudon County Hospital in Lenoir City, TN. He was born August 9, 1971 in Harriman, TN. He was a loving, caring, Christian husband and son. He tried to help everyone he came into contact with.

Eric played offensive guard throughout his football career at Harriman High School and continued through his college career at Carson Newman College and then at Tennessee Technological University. While attending college he started his own business for 19 years known as "Grigsby Militaria." After graduating college and continuing his business he started to realize something wasn't right with his health. He needed help but didn't know what kind of help. As time went on the last two years of his life, a doctor told him he had symptoms of what is known as CTE and he also had PTSD. Eric was put on medications that helped but didn't cure the problems. After his death he became one of the Legacy Donors at the VA-BU-CLF Brain Bank. He wanted to still be able to continue to help people.
