Errol Anguish

Friday, March 8, 2019

Errol Walter Anguish, of Eureka Springs, lost his life on February 15th, just a few scant hours after his transfer from the Washington Regional Medical Center to the hospice house. His death was the result of over 13 years of suffering with Lyme disease, which has only recently been recognized by the CDC, and is a valid disease.

Born and raised in Memphis, Errol was a man of peace who respected the diversity of others. Artistic and preoccupied, primarily with music, and a wide range of artistic endeavors, he spent a good deal of his earthly hours promoting peaceful relations between others. Well versed in many spiritual pursuits, Errol was a student of life and love. Often noted for his “eccentric” leanings, he was not always the easiest person to understand, but anyone who knew his heart was fully aware of his compassionate giving and caring for others; those fortunate enough to have known him will attest to this fact.

Preceding him in death were his loving grandmother Mamie, his grandfather Wink, and his father, David. Errol is survived by his brother, Dana, and he will be sorely missed by all that truly knew him.

Visitation will be Friday, March 8, 2019, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Nelson’s Chapel of the Springs in Eureka Springs. Graveside services will be 10:30 a.m., Saturday, March 9, 2019, in the Eureka Springs Cemetery under the direction of Nelson Funeral Service. Online condolences may be sent to the family at
