Erik Panagrossi, 28, of Edgewater, FL passed away suddenly on April 17th, 2021.  Erik was born on January 28th, 1993 in Weymouth, MA.  Erik is survived by his parents Lisa Panagrossi (Dennis Cowe) of Edgewater, FL and Robert Bellanco (Jackie Bellanco) of Lakeland, FL.  Erik is also survived by his grandmother, Elizabeth Panagrossi of The Villages, FL;  his uncles Anthony J Panagrossi of Cocoa Beach, FL and David Panagrossi (Shannon Panagrossi) of Gulf Breeze, FL;  his cousins Sophie Panagrossi and Hanna Panagrossi of Gulf Breeze, FL.;  his grandmother Claire Cowe of Halifax, MA; his great grandmother Mary Desanto of The Villages and many additional aunts, uncles and cousins.  He is preceded in death by his grandfather, Anthony P. Panagrossi of The Villages, FL.  Erik also leaves his childhood best friend Sarah O’Shaughnessy of New Smyrna Beach, FL who he called his sister.


Erik was a talented artist and could sketch anything from his head after looking at it once.  Erik had a passion for farming, horticulture, horses and agriculture.  He found peace on the farms.  Erik was also an active member of the recovery community in which he touched many hearts.  Erik could be described as the guy who did the little things for others:  holding the door, helping an elderly lady across the parking lot every week at church to her car, talking to and hugging on people, making family dinners for his friends, giving rides and always making people feel invited.  Things he could have chose not to do, but instead went out of his way because that is what made him happy.  Erik made a huge impact on many people and had an amazing sense of people.  Erik will be remembered for his infectious laugh, kindness and caring for everyone around him.  Erik would move heaven and earth to help someone.


Erik and his mother had a very special relationship and bond.  She was his world as he was hers.  If you knew Erik, then you most likely knew Erik’s mom through him.  Erik also shared an extra special love with his grandmother. His family was everything to him.  No matter where Erik was, he always brought his family traditions with him.  His favorite family tradition was Sunday dinner.  He loved to cook for everyone.


Family and Friends are invited to begin gathering at 11am Wednesday, April 28th, 2021.  Baldwin Brothers Funeral and Cremation Society, 1 North Causeway, New Smyrna Beach, FL 32169.  Following visitation, there will be a mass for Erik at Sacred Hearth Church, 998 Father Donlon Drive (US1), New Smyrna Beach, FL at 1pm.  Everyone is invited to join the family at the family home in Edgewater, FL for a reception immediately following church.


In lieu of flowers you can make donations to Volusia Recovery Alliance, PO Box 7175, Daytona Beach, FL  32116  www.volusiarecoveryalliance.org

    Lisa and Dennis ,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. Erik was a wonderful guy. It’s odd to call him a guy because, when I picture him he’s a little boy sitting in my chair while instructing me on what to do with his beautiful head of hair !! Many great memories with him . My heart is broken for you . I know how close you two were ,and what a great mom you are !!! Please know I’m praying for you all❤️

    Our hearts go out to you at this sad time Lisa. We remember you sharing stories of Erik and it is clear that you had an incredible bond - one that lives on in the love that continues through all the days ahead. I'm sorry that we will not be able to be there together with your Ceridian family, but know that you and your family will continue to be in our prayers. Joann and Jack
