I met Eric in 1980 when I joined MacGregor Medical Clinic. He was always wonderful and a friend for all of those years. He was devoted to Jane, his kids, and grandkids. He will truly be missed by all. May you rest in peace, Eric.

Eric and Jayne have been my clients and friends for over twenty years. While being an excellent medical practitioner, I was always impressed with their love and care for family. Family was their first and only priority. It came from their heart.
I was privileged to work for such a fine man and will greatly miss him.
