Eric Jeffrey Corzan, 45, of Valparaiso passed away Thursday, January 19, 2023, at Munster Community Hospital.  He was born October 15, 1977 to Jeffrey & Patricia (Wysocki) Corzan and attended Wheeler High School. Eric made his career as a carpenter beginning with Bucher Construction and spending the past 13 years with Union Local #599.     To say that racing consumed Eric in all its forms would be an understatement.  He loved the thrill of being behind the wheel of his go kart at the starting line waiting for the green flag to drop, or sitting atop his BMX bike readying for a freestyle show.  And he loved being at the track surrounded by racing enthusiasts sharing conversation about all aspects of the sport.  As a true thrill seeker, Eric was naturally drawn to skydiving and any other pursuits with an adrenaline rush.
Survivors include his mother, Patricia (Joseph) Krawczyk of Valparaiso, siblings, Jason (Tammy) Corzan of Georgia, Emily (Jeff) George of Highland, Aaron Corzan of Kouts, nieces & nephews; Kami, Haylee, Darren, Braden, Alicia, Tiffani, Brittney, Jacob & Spencer, and great-nieces & nephews; Ryder, McKinley & Astaria. He was preceded in death by his father in 2003 and his nephew Jeremy Burney in December of 2022.
A visitation will be held Thursday from 3 - 7 pm at Moeller Funeral Home, Valparaiso with service beginning at 7:00 pm.  Memorial donations may be made to Autism Speaks or Gift of Hope.
