August Eric Priebe, age 56 from Neola, Utah left us too soon on the morning of Saturday, January 29, 2022, surrounded by family and friends in the comfort of his home.
He was born in Moline, Illinois to August and Sarah Priebe on Monday, March 8, 1965.
Eric was a selfless, hard-working man who would give the shirt off his own back to help someone else in need. Some of you may know him as the pumper for Newfield, others as the owner of Back Country Tree Service. Eric loved the outdoors in every way — hunting, fishing, or just camping with his family. He was described as the life of the party and one of the good ones.
He is survived by his mother, Sarah Priebe; his three daughters, Cherisa Priebe, Shaylyn Priebe, and Chanell Priebe; his sisters, Paula Duncan, Laura Richards, and Karen Hill; his brothers, Don Priebe, Derwin Priebe, Kevin Priebe, and Fred Priebe; and his grandchildren, Alyxis Makaylee Boren, Zoey Lee Boren, and August Macray Goodrich.
He is preceded in death by his father, August Priebe.
A viewing will be held on Friday, February 4, 2022 at the Hullinger Mortuary from 2:00 - 5:00 p.m.
Per his wishes he will then be cremated.
