COMPTON - Eric D. Allensworth, 58, of Compton, passed away July 11, 2021 at OSF St. Anthony’s Medical Center in Rockford.
He will be cremated with a celebration of life at a later date in the near future.
Eric was born Nov. 8, 1962 in Hannibal, Mo. to Lyle and Mary (Seabaugh) Allensworth.
Survivors include his mother, Mary Allensworth of Barry; a sister, Rogenia (Rod) Little; a brother, Patrick (Diana) Allensworth; three nieces, Melissa (Andrew) Wilson, Kelsey (Josh) Kyle and Addyson Allensworth; three nephews, Ryan (Megan) Little, Anthony (Caitie) Finnell and James (Katelyn) Finnell; and 12 great-nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his father and his grandparents, Cap and Thelma Allensworth and Julian and Mary Campen.
Eric attended and graduated from high school in Barry. He loved to fish, ride motorcycles and snowmobiles. When Eric was young, he and his dad went to small tractor pulls, winning at times on their souped‐up lawn mower. This started a love of truck and tractor pulling, which Eric participated in for many years with his close friend, Mark. He was loved by all his family and his many dear, close friends, too numerous to mention, who will all miss him.
