Get to Know Eric:
Born and raised in Alliance, Ohio, and having spent my formative years in the picturesque town of Homeworth, I now call a serene country setting near Minerva my home. Family is at the core of my world, and I am blessed to have been married to the love of my life for four wonderful years. Together, we are the proud parents of three amazing children.
My journey to the insurance industry began with a love story. Nearly six years ago, at a health and wellness seminar in Texas, I had the privilege of meeting my beautiful wife, Sophia. It truly was love at first sight, and I knew within a week of getting to know her that she was the one God had hand-chosen for me. Our shared faith is the bedrock of our family, and we take joy in serving God and traveling together as a united front. Our spiritual home is Grace Chapel in Minerva, where we are committed to living out our faith in the service of Jesus and people. Serving others is a calling I hold dear. Whether it’s guiding individuals toward Jesus through my ministry called GRIGT or sharing knowledge with my class of men at the Alliance Pregnancy Center, I am honored to serve God in such powerful ways.
Before my venture into the insurance industry in 2022, I spent a decade as a professional semi-truck driver for FedEx Freight. My diverse background also includes experience in excavation, concrete work, and dairy farming for most of my life. It was not until 2022 that God led me on an incredible journey, revealing my deep passion for helping individuals map out their financial futures and build legacies for their families.
Beyond the workplace, I find immense happiness in spending quality time with my family and friends. A cherished passion of mine since the tender age of 8 is hunting, and I relish being in the great outdoors as much as possible. Whether it’s hunting, hiking, cutting firewood, constructing projects, or simply playing with my kids, nature holds a special place in my heart.
At Pat Joyce Insurance, I am committed to helping you secure your financial future, just as I’ve found immense joy in assisting others on their unique journeys.
