Eric, is also survived by his brothers and sisters in IBEW Local 529, as a 45 year member.
As many know Eric was a die-hard riders’ fan if the game was on don’t bother trying to get him out of his chair unless it’s for munchies or if the 4th quarter is done. He enjoyed spending time and socializing with friends and family, he was very fond of darts (even had a webcam to play online). He was always taking care of the lawn every spring where Kali peed all winter and was very proud when it got all nice and green always wanted to show everyone, more hobbies of his including things like Snowmobiling, swimming, golfing, fishing and watching the weekly episodes of big bang theory, Hawaii 5-0, and last man on earth don’t forget the morning news. These were some of his favourite things to do in his spare time Especially the tv shows. As many of you know he was also the most selfless caring helping person to everyone he met. He was a true angel on earth now he is our guardian watching over us. Rest in peace Brother, Father, uncle, and friend. Forever in our hearts Eric.
