Anyone who has had the privilege to know him immediately recognized his joyful spirit. We were all fortunate to have been a part of Eric's life and circle of friends. He cared deeply for others and always wanted people to feel supported, valued and happy - the mark of a true friend and an exceptional person. Our thoughts are mixed with deep sadness at the loss of such an extraordinary person as well as an incredible joy to have known him and to have been a part of his life and creative endeavors.
