Eric Braun was the devoted father to Malleck and Zakara & loving husband to Nichole, a Cedar Tree Montessori family.  He unexpectedly passed away in May 2014, and his family wanted to start a scholarship in his name.  Eric was adored far and wide for his warmth, strength, generosity, infectious sense of fun, and ability to make people feel good about themselves.  Eric's spirit of caring reached many people and that legacy will continue in the hearts of all who knew him.
