Eric N. Grisier

Eric N. Grisier, age 48, of Archbold, passed away Monday, July 4, 2011, at Defiance Area Inpatient Hospice, following a long and hard-fought battle with Kidney Cancer.
Despite the trials of the disease, he lived his life to the fullest and his faith never waivered. Eric taught so much to so many throughout his illness.
