I was on the Killingly High School track team (1972-1976) running high and intermediate hurdles. Eric participated in the shot out and discus. He was always so supportive of me, even though I was not the best athlete on the team. He was a gentle giant indeed. I will always have fond memories of Eric! The Dolphins were fortunate to have him on that Offensive line!Bob WeigelPhoenix, AZ

We were so sorry to hear of your loss. The thoughts of many are with you at this time of sorrow.

When I was 19 years old I spent six months at the Laakso residence.....(thats the way Eric allways , as I remembered answered the phone btw) I just now at the age of 46 said to my thirteen year old daughter, eighteen year old son and my husband that " maybe I could google" the family in Florida where I stayed as a nanny ... So I did, and sadly found out about Erics passing away!
I hope now that life is good to you all, Deb, Shane and Brent you all and Eric will of course allways be remembered ..

What a great person to be around, we spent many long hours watching Star Trek and studying minerals in lab, geology field camp. The list of stories I could tell about this thoughtful and extremely intelligent friend is very long. I know I speak for my family also since Eric made a few trips upstate Louisiana with me. There was our trip to Jamaica, after the '79 Super Bowl, each was a story in itself. He was and is always "Big Eric" I was very saddened and shocked to hear of his death. Debbie, it has been a long time since we met you but I remember saying a prayer for all of you when I heard and since reading these entries I am reminded again of how close Eric and were during our Tulane days. God bless you.
