Maher, Eric Martin  
Eric Martin Maher October 13, 1956 - April 28, 2015 Sacramento Eric was born Oct. 13, 1956 in Fairfield, the first-born son of Delbert and Marlys Maher. He spent his childhood in Arcata amidst the Redwoods loving the Boy Scouts, Sierra Club and all outdoor activities. Family adventures centered around exploring new wilderness (and new libraries). Eric pressed his way through many challenges in life. He was a fighter who didn't let asthma or Hodgkins disease stop him. Diagnosed with cancer, he spent his fifth grade year at Stanford University hospital, with Mom by his side. Eric was one of the first Hodgkins survivors and went on to live cancer-free all his life. Nothing stopped Eric. He simply worked harder. Driven to succeed educationally, he graduated with high honors first from U.C. Santa Cruz with a B.A. in Environmental Planning then from C.S.U. Sacramento with a Master of Business Administration. Eric spent more than 30 years fighting on behalf of Mother Earth in the State of California: first at Coastal Waste Management Board and Coastal Commission, then as an Associate Environmental Planner in the Office of Environmental Analysis in the Office of Legal Affairs, and finally as a Senior Hazardous Materials Scientist in the Department of Toxic Substances Control. This involved his personal involvement in more than 850 permitting or clean-up decisions. Eric provided statewide technical expertise, consultation and assistance to regional and headquarters staff, and the public, on the application and implementation of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). He also participated in complex Hazardous Waste Management and Site Mitigation Projects. Eric earned numerous accolades for his conscientious diligence, including several awards for Superior Accomplishment. Eric died at home in Sacramento. He is survived by his mother, Marlys Maher; brother, Stephen Patrick Maher, and sister, Karen Ruth Maher Cameron.
