Eric was our first volleyball friend. We walked onto the courts without teammates, probably in some sort of Michigan gear, and Eric offered to play threes. That was the beginning of a lifetime friendship. The volleyball tribe grew around him as he welcomed in new friends. We traveled together, danced, hugged a lot, laughed, and watched the children grow. Truly we formed a family, and our loss is significant. We will miss your goofy, heartfelt laugh, your bear hugs, and your brotherhood. We will always love you, E. Go Blue.

I met Eric in school, and before he moved to Tampa, we ended up spending a lot of time together. We bowled, golfed, played cards, gambled, while helping each other through divorces, turmoil, and triumphs. Although we obviously didn't spend as much time together after the move, I could always count on him to be the same friend as he always was, quick with a word of comfort or a joke when I needed it. I missed him when he moved, and I miss him now.

As great of a friend as he was, he took more pride in trying to be the best husband and father he could be. He loved his family more than anything else. My heart goes out to Meg and Kiera, but know that you were always on his mind, and he'll always be with you, as he will be with everyone that had the pleasure of knowing him. Much love to you guys, his family, and his extended family of friends.

As a colleague of Eric's over here at Curry Controls Company, I was continuously humbled by his work ethic-if there was work to be done, he would 'get after it' so he could get home to Meg and Keira as quickly as possible. As a great friend, Eric was always kind with a quick smile and had a real zeal for enjoying life. You will be sorely missed my friend. God speed to you and may God bless your entire family at this time of grief for a tremendous loss.

This is a tough one. My heart goes out to Megan and Keira. I’ve known Megan and Eric for many years playing volleyball at the beach, back to the old days at the Under Tow! There are many great memories. I played on several teams with Eric and it was always a fun, easy time. It has been such a treat to watch beautiful Keira grow up on the beach. There really are just no words to express my feelings for this loss. Eric was a good one taken far too soon. Let’s go Lightning...Stanley Cup bound!

Hearing of Eric's passing was absolutely heartbreaking. I've known him since 7th grade and shared very memorable moments with him in our teenage years. We were classmates, co-workers at Bonanza and for a moment in time we were more than friends. He was such a fun, spunky loving, kind, caring soul who could light up any room with his smile and laughter; you couldn't help but to have a great time when you were with him. I'm thankful for the friendship he and I have a maintained throughout all of these years. I was so happy to see him living his best life. Megan and Keira, I know we have never met yet because of Eric's post throughout the years, I've had a glimpse into your lives. The love he had for the both of you was clearly evident and my heart aches deeply for you. I'm hopeful you find great strength to guide you on your journey forward while holding his memory in your heart. I know he will forever be watching over you two!

Whenever we would visit Clearwater, we would get together with Eric, Megan and Keira. It was always a great time.
