Deepest condolences to Joann and Eric’s entire family. I’ll always remember the fun times we had in the Rotary Club...especially the Follies Shows. Eric sang and danced with the best of them! God’s peace, my friend.

Some people come into our lives and leave footprints on our hearts.
Eric's footprints will always be on my heart. I loved our friendship and will miss knowing he is just an email away.
I wish Joann peace of mind and comfort in the days ahead.
Love,
Sharon and Sharon
I've tried to include a photo of our dinner at Conroy's on Hilton Head when you both spent time visiting us.

Eric was a generous gentleman, a sailor and all around good person. Someone that you never forget and remember all your life. Eric over came many obstacles as life went on. I just had spine surgery so I presently have limited mobility so will miss Eric's funeral but he will always stay in my head. I wish peace and relief to his family. Someone like Eric only comes into the world infrequently.
