I recall in 1979 as a youngster on the Brooklyn (Ct.) Jr.High basketball team, Eric would join us for sprints. The floor would shake as he ran past all of us kids. A very impressive person made a lasting mark on me that day and I would attempt to follow his progress from that point forward. Rest in Peace Mr.Laakso. Thanks for the memories

My condolences to the Laakso family . One of the nicest person you would want to meet , hard to believe he played football . He will be missed but not forgotten by myself and friends at The Circus.

I went with my father to every home game Eric played in with the Dolphins. I lost my father earlier this year and know how hard it is for the Laakso family right now. I have watched his youngest son Brent grow up since middle school and see how much he is hurting. My heart goes out to Eric's two sons Brent and Shane and their mother Debbie. May time heal their pain.

Eric will be missed by members of our family. He exemplified the athlete who is the "good guy". There is no question but that he really was a truly gentle man. May his memory be a blessing for all of us.

I am so saddened to hear that Eric has passed away. He was a high school classmate and friend. The term 'gentle giant' describes him back then also. We were all so proud of him when he made the NFL! No one deserved it more. RIP Eric.

I was shocked to read about Eric's passing this evening. I remember interviewing Eric before the '84 Super Bowl for my radio show. He was very generous with his time and was wonderful to talk with. Godspeed Eric.
