Eric Mark Neuschwander, 57, was called home to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on April 23, 2018. Eric was the beloved son of the late Paul and Martha (McCoy) Neuschwander and brother to the late Paul, Jr. and Richard Neuschwander. He was born and raised in Lansdale, PA. After graduation from North Penn High School in 1979, he attended East Stroudsburg University where he became a member of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, and received both a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and a Bachelor of Arts in Economics in 1984. In 1990 he earned his Master of Arts in Communication at Regent University. Eric put his knowledge and skills to work on numerous and award-winning film, video and television projects and was employed with the Christian Broadcasting Network as a Video Editor for international shows. He was an avid sports fan with his favorite teams being the Detroit Tigers, Detroit Red Wings, and Duke Basketball. He was a long time member of Harvest Assembly church in Chesapeake. He enjoyed spending time with his family, hiking, biking, gardening, and also making people laugh with his humor.
