Erik Haun, 51 of Boardman, OH passed away unexpectedly on July 29th, 2020.
Today my bubby is the day we lost you and gained another angel in heaven. Our hearts are heavy with tears, as memories of you flash over the years. My brother Erik Haun was born to Denise Marie Haun and Bill Haun on January 16th, 1969. Mommy was happy but sadly the marriage did not last. It was you and her for a while, until she met John Fonagy. They, with you were married on May 12th, 1973 and it was not long until your favorite little pain in the ass was born, ME, your little sister, Aleta! We grew up together and grew apart together as life weaves its path for us to follow. After you graduated from Brookfield High School in 1987, your path held many struggles and lessons, you were not always ready to learn and many losses to bear, Grandpa Andy, Grandma Rebecca Haun, and our mommy Denise Marie Andrak in 2012. You found comfort in your friends and partners in crime Miguel and David, also your circle of car show buddies. Your love for Halloween, Christmas, and Easter skeletons and snowmen galore! Oh the endless trips to Kraynaks I had to endure! Bubby, you were the best story-teller and “remember when-er” in the world. Today is the day I will remember when my brother, Erik Haun, went to the big car show in the sky listening to Ice, Ice Baby.
Erik is survived by his sister, Aleta Fonagy and Jason Addy, his father, John Fonagy both of Masury, OH, his partner of 5 years and friend of 15, Miguel (David) Gay, of Boardman, OH.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be sent to Angels for Animals 4750 S. Range Canfield, OH 44406 in memory of Erik.
Friends may call Monday August 3rd, 2020 from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm at SHERMAN Funeral Home 2201 Highland Rd. Hermitage, PA.

Erik was the first baby I ever held. I was 9. He called me Lin-Lin. Etay, you are now with Denise. I know she missed you and you missed her. Aleta and John, I am so sorry for your loss.

I only got to meet Erik once. He was an on-line friend who I spend hours chatting with over the years. I finally got to meet him in person last Christmas. I drove from Pittsburgh to Boardman in a complete white-out to hang out with him, he was bored. I'm so glad I risked the weather, and got to spend the few hours with him chatting about life, cars, people we both know, and watch a movie. He was very funny and sarcastic. I'm sorry for your loss, and that I never got know him better than I did. God Bless!!!

Erik will be missed. I can say he was always kind to us,his neighbors. I know his kindness reached far and wide. Ever generous, snow blowing our drive when it was a heavy snow. Even his donated , post Halloween pumpkins are growing in our yard. I could go on, yes he will be missed dearly.

My deepest condolences to David, Miguel, and his sister. I will forever remember Erik being the life of the party. He always made sure to make an entrance when he came in and I'll cherish all of the memories I have made with him at my parents house for all of the holidays and get together. Rest easy, you were truly a beautiful soul I'll never forget ❤
