This is a great loss to me personally as well to IBM. Eric was always friendly, extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I have know Eric since I joined IBM 16 years ago and enjoyed working with him on the few projects we did together. Things will never be the same,and Eric will be very sorely missed!

Eric, your sudden loss both as a friend and colleague for the past 17 years has left a huge void on so many levels that words can not describe. I'm glad we got to share one more "Doggie Day" lunch outing with the gang and work together in the lab on your last day although neither of us knew those would be the final hours that I will cherish forever. You always thought of others and were there to lend support whether it be an ear to listen, help with a project, give expert technical advice, or just being a friend people could count on. You left your mark everywhere I look in the EMC labs to serve as constant remembrance of your many contributions to the EMC team and blazed a trail for others to try and follow in your footsteps. Rest in peace my friend, I will always remember you in my heart.

I had the opportunity to work with Eric in 2003 and just recently in 2012. Eric was always great to work with, a sincere and honest person. Life is too short and to leave so suddenly is a void that takes a long time to fill.

A very fitting quote for Eric are the lyrics of a Fred Small song, "Everything Possible."
"And the only measures of your words and your deeds are the love you leave behind you when you're gone." Eric was loved and will be greatly missed.

Eric we will miss you a lot. This was a huge shock to us. I have known you for many years here at IBM. You helped me a lot when it came to the technical side of calibration for your departments equipment. Every time I saw you in the hall or when you would stop by the machine shop to talk business or just to say hi you always had a smile on your face and in your voice. May God be with you and your family.
