Eric J Nordin -- West Warwick

Gorton-Menard Funeral Home & Crematory Eric John Nordin, age 63, formerly of West Warwick, passed away at Kent County Hospital in Warwick at 8:25 in the evening on Tuesday, December 18, 2012. The cause was complications from lung cancer.

Eric was born June 16, 1949 in Providence, Rhode Island, the second child of Doris M. (Gauthier) Kennedy (1928–1993) and Robert C. Nordin (1925–1975). For most of his adult life, he worked to turn his passions into a fruitful career. His passion for motorcycles led to more than fifteen years as a motorcycle mechanic; his passion for computers led to side jobs selling software and custom-building PC systems, a skill that he taught himself. Eric ended his career at Foxwoods Resort and Casino.

He is survived by his wife, Johna Lynn (Wegley) Nordin of West Warwick; 2 daughters, Dani Nordin of Watertown MA and Erin Nordin of West Warwick; a stepdaughter, Ashley Wegley, and stepson, Ryan Ducharme, both of West Warwick; 6 grandchildren, ranging in age from 4 months to 15 years. He was the brother of Robert "Bob" Nordin, Kurt Nordin, Regina (Nordin) Moore, Joanne (Kennedy) St. Lawrence, Georgette Kennedy, Valerie Lynn Kennedy, Debbie (Nordin) Vacarro, Sandra (Nordin) Christian, Noreen (Nordin) Camera, and Linda (Kennedy) Smith.

Per his wishes, Eric's funeral services will be held privately. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made directly to Johna Lynn Nordin, 43 Archambeault Avenue, West Warwick RI 02893.
