LOS ANGELES, CA - Erik Saltzgaber passed away on June 10, 2008 in Los Angeles, CA.
Erik attended West Hill School and spent several years in Basel, Switzerland before returning to Ithaca and graduating from Ithaca High School in 1980.
After high school, Erik attended Cornell University and was a member of the Kappa Alpha Society. He earned a B.S. in Photo and Cinema Studies from Ithaca College in 1984. Soon after college, Erik moved to Los Angeles where he worked as a writer, producer, and vice president for international sales with several production companies. He remained an avid hockey fan and player since his days playing for the champion Green Elks in Ithaca's Pee Wee hockey league right up until this year's Stanley Cup win by his beloved Detroit RedWings. Erik was known for his humor, his intelligence, his determination and his generosity. We will miss him always.
