Mr. Eric Lee Compton, age 51 years, of Jefferson City, Mo., passed away on Wednesday, December 2, 2020 at his home.

Eric was born on November 21, 1969 in Germany, a son of Vernon and Agnes Compton. When he was 3 years old, his family moved to the United States and settled in Dixon, Mo., where Eric was a 1989 graduate of Dixon High School. He was married on February 14, 1997 in Pulaski County, Mo. to Dawn M. Goertz.

Eric was employed as a dishwasher with Steak n’ Shake. He previously worked at Quaker Windows for over 10 years.

A man of strong faith, Eric was a past member of Center Point Baptist Church.

Eric was truly a family man, and did what he could to keep things fun. He was famous for his Donald Duck voice. He had the best time at family gatherings and BBQ’s, going to car races and visiting the casino. Eric also found peace in nature and could often be found fishing. Some of Eric’s fondest memories include his wedding, the births of his daughters, and walking two of his daughters down the aisle.

Survivors include: his loving wife, Dawn Compton, of Jefferson City, Mo.; daughters, Ericka and Zack Bonine of Waynesville, Mo., Aggie and Chris Penfield of Jefferson City, Mo., and Andrea Compton of Jefferson City, Mo; father, Vernon Compton of Sallisaw, Ok.; brother, Willy and Karla Compton of Eldon, Mo; sister, Andrea Sheer of Licking, Mo; mother-in-law, Winnie Goertz of Waynesville, Mo.; his fur baby, Buddy Lee Compton; and several extended family members and friends.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Agnes Compton; grandparents, Walter and Geneva Compton; father-in-law, David Goertz; and brother-in-law, Dean Goertz.

Private family services will be held.
