May 2, 1991 - June 18, 2016
Erich William Keith Rushton - age 25 years of Sackville, passed away on June 18, 2016.
He was born May 2, 1991.
Though Erich couldn’t speak he always left an impression.
He loved walking, especially around the yard picking grass and flowers along the way. You never needed to weed the garden with Erich around.
He liked to deliver the mail to the mailboxes and was learning to do the laundry, though he preferred to hang them instead of putting them in the dryer. He did walks for autism with his group the quick steppers, as well as being part of the walking club. His favorite thing was being outside.
When he wasn’t walking, he was swinging, playing in the sandbox or swimming. He was always on the move. The only times he seemed to stand still was when he blew bubbles in the yard or was licking his ice cream.
Survived by his mother Yvonne Meuse of Timberlea, father Keith Rushton of Dartmouth, sister Dawn Meuse of Timberlea. Grandmother Donna Rushton of New Maryland.
Uncles Joe, Pat (Margaret), Erich (Diamond), Raymond (Mary), David (Mary) and Roger Meuse.
Mark (Melanie), Kevin (Joan) Rushton
Aunt Frances (Charlie) Hounsell.
“A special thanks to all the earth angels we have met, who have loved and cared for my boy. So many amazing people throughout my sons 25 years of life. And one extremely special earth angel Elisha."
