Eric Mills

Eric Vincent Mills, Son of Margaret Tricarico, passed away suddenly at his home in Hagerstown, MD on Thursday, Mary, 31, 2018.

Eric was the owner and chef of Chef of Consequence, the concession stand at the Dead & Company (Grateful Dead) concert tours and his in-home chef services, EVM Personal Chef Services. You may also remember Eric as head chef and kitchen manager at Cafe St. Amand, Gettysburg or Confit French Bistro, Camp Hill.

Eric was very proud of introducing children to new foods when he catered the Steelton Community Development Foundation annual Children's Holiday Party. He really enjoyed seeing children enjoy brussel sprouts and other vegetables when the vegetable tasted like candy.

Eric was born in Scranton, PA and grew up in South Middleton Township. He attended Boiling Springs Schools and Harrisburg Area Community College.

Eric was smart, articulate, funny, an exceptional chef and a Grateful Dead expert. He will be greatly missed by his mother and father, Margaret and Joseph Tricarico and brother, Bryan Tricarico. Eric also leaves to mourn his passing, his maternal grandmother, Jean Pierre; maternal grandfather, David Pierre and companion, Theresa Thompson of Scranton; maternal aunt, Janet Pierre (James) Vezendi of Mayfield; and paternal aunt, Mary Rose (David) Rickenbach. Eric has a large extended Pierre/Tricarico family including three great-paternal-uncles and numerous cousins in the Scranton area. He is also survived by his companion, Sharaya Mobley of Hagerstown, MD.

Eric will now join his maternal grandfather, John Pierre and paternal grandparents, William and Marion Tricarico in heaven.

A memorial service and tree planting ceremony will be announced at a later time. Interment will be at the convenience of the family in the St. Catherine's Cemetery, Moscow, PA. Memorial contributions may be made to the JFT Recovery and Veterans Support Services, 300 Market St., Lemoyne, PA 17043 or Spinal CSF Leak Foundation (spinalcsfleak.org). Arrangements are being handled by the Hollinger Funeral Home & Crematory, Inc., Mt. Holly Springs, PA 17065.

I am so sorry for your loss - I know exactly how you feel. Losing Nikki was the hardest thing I had to endure. Prayers and peaceful thoughts to you. Eric kept in touch with me after Nikki passed.  He was a gentle soul.
