He was predeceased by his first wife, Hazel, in 1989. Eric served in the Royal Canadian Navy during WWII and then settled in Victoria, BC, with his wife Hazel. They moved to Burnaby in the early 50's and then to North Vancouver in 1958 where they raised their three daughters. Eric and Doreen married and settled in Ladysmith in 1991. Eric had a passion for music and literature, and he loved the ocean; he was a very kind-hearted, gentle soul and will be dearly missed by his family and friends.
