In loving memory ~

At the age of 89, Eric passed away peacefully in his sleep.

Eric was predeceased by his loving wife of 47 years, Helen. He is survived by his two sons, Gerald (Debbie) and Dana (Nadia), 7 grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren and sister Sharon.

From his upbringing in Bridgewater, N.S. until his passing in Comox, B.C., he enjoyed and was quite talented at hockey, baseball, softball, and shooting pool.

Of his 37 years in Canadian Armed Forces his most enjoyable postings were to Search and Rescue where he felt he was doing a useful service for his countrymen.

During his last years, the friendships made at both the Komox 888 Wing and Comox Legion helped him enjoy life to the very end…
