Erik Gene Luciano

He left behind his wife Donna, his son Erik Luciano, his parents Edmund and Marsha Matheson, sisters Angelique Matheson and Kathiann Brennan, brothers Joe Brennan and Sean Farrell and step mother Marti Luciano. He also left behind 5 grandchildren, Anjalie, Jasmin, Aria, Chance and Lyla and 2 more on the way that he won’t get to meet and many nephews, nieces aunties, uncles and cousins. Most will remember his humor and his way to always make people laugh. He was the center of attention wherever he went, although he hated it. He loved hockey and his Boston Bruins.The happiest I ever saw him was when the B’s won the Stanley Cup in 2011. And we can’t forget the Patriots. He so wanted to see Brady win one more. He loved his hometown Brockton and his many friends there. So so many wonderful friends, Reilly, JoJo, Scotty, Finney, Bushey, Ambrose, Matty, Paul, Gina and so many more it would fill 10 pages, if not more. He was loved by many, and he loved them as much. May he rest in peace and be free from from all his pain. I love you my gorgeous husband! Sweet dreams!
