Tanner Eric Kalasz

Tanner Eric Kalasz, 20, passed away on the morning of April 10th in an automobile accident. Tanner was born on October 27, 2000, in Fairfield, Ohio to Eric and Michelle (Bernardoni) Kalasz. After graduating from Wake Forest High School in 2019, Tanner joined the Army National Guard and completed boot camp at Fort Jackson in December 2019. Tanner was a current student at East Carolina University in Greenville, NC and was a member of LifePointe Church in Raleigh.

A funeral service will be held Saturday, April 17, 2021 at LifePointe Church in Raleigh.  The family will receive friends Saturday at the church from 12:00 – 3:00 P.M.  Social distancing is appreciated and face coverings are required.

Tanner had a huge heart and would do anything for the people he cared about. Although strong willed and stubborn, Tanner was very passionate about the things he loved and could talk for days about trucks, the Army, and anything outdoors. Tanner was one of the original founders of the Wake Forest High School’s Collision Repair Club.

As the oldest of three, Tanner was the definition of a great big brother to Raegan and Aubrey. As their biggest role model and protector, he taught them to never live in fear, always do what makes you happy, and was fiercely protective. 

Besides his parents, he is survived by his two sisters Raegan and Aubrey; grandmother Sharon Quale; grandfather Robert Kalasz, grandparents Terry and Alicia Reinitz and Richard and Pamela Bernadoni, as well as many aunts and uncles who loved and adored him.

In lieu of flowers, an Education fund at Wake Forest Federal  FBO The Tanner Eric Kalasz Memorial Fund PO Box 1167 Wake Forest, NC 27587 is available for those that wish to donate.
