Eric Wilmont Millard, age 39, of St. Augustine passed away unexpectedly on June 24, 2021, in Jacksonville. Born in Sayre, PA, Eric moved to Florida as a 4-year-old with his family. He grew up in Lake Mary and Apopka and graduated from Lake Brantley High School in 2000. Eric later attended Valencia College Culinary & Hospitality School in Orlando, graduating in 2011. He worked as a chef at the Enzian Cinema Café and Bar in Orlando and Hemingway’s Cuba Restaurant & Bar in Ashville, NC. Most recently he was a chef at the Palm Valley Grill in Ponte Vedra. Eric was a talented chef and he loved his work. Becoming a chef was the perfect outlet for his creative nature. An adventurous soul, he enjoyed the outdoors, spending time at the beach and hiking in the mountains. He had an incredible sense of humor, always quoting lines from his favorite movies; and he especially enjoyed a good inside joke. Eric was sensitive and caring. He was greatly attached to his 2 cats, Loki and Alabama. He had a big heart and was always helping people. More than anything Eric loved his family. He especially loved being an uncle to his niece Gianna. He will be greatly missed by his family and many friends.
