About Heath River Eiland:
Everlasting Memorial Obituary for Heath River Eiland
Heath River Eiland, sixteen-year-old sophomore
at Anderson High School and beloved son of Stephen and Rebecca Eiland, went to be with Jesus on Tuesday,
the 10th of May, 2011 at Round Rock Memorial Hospital.
He is survived by his two brothers, Forrest
Wayne Eiland and Robin Michael Eiland, both of Austin, Texas; grandmother, Glorine Eiland; aunts, uncles
and cousins of Austin; eleven more aunts and uncles, and many cousins all residing in San Antonio, Texas;
and a multitude of friends. He is also survived by his endearing girlfriend, Aria Hollingsworth, daughter
of Kevin Hollingsworth and Monica Roesch.
He was an active athlete in many sports during his
short lived years. He played baseball with the Balcones Little League and soccer with the Lone Star
Soccer Club. He currently was a member of the Anderson Trojan JV soccer team. Heath was also a member
of the Anderson Trojan wrestling team. He enjoyed playing the guitar and skateboarding with his buddies:
Tyler Merritt, Paul Kelly, Dylan Bunn, Stephen Banks, Christopher Ross, Noah Arthur, and Joshua Hoef,
as well as many others who shared the love of this sport. He was an instant friend to all he met and
he had a contagious smile.
