Eric Dymond Obituary
Eric Malcolm DYMOND

Family man, artist, professor, nature lover and humourist died in his sleep on Wednesday, October 7, 2015 at the age of 64. Inspiring father to Chris (Wendy), Erica and Graeme (Jesslyn). Adored Pappy to Audrey and Desmond. Loyal brother of Jan (Romy) and Pat (Gary). Goofy uncle of Heather (Harry). Childhood spent with longtime friends from Etobicoke and Kipling Collegiate. Proud graduate of NSCAD (class of '75), he will be long remembered for his still life work displayed across North America, his trailblazing contributions to both the genesis of rhizome.org and the digital media community at large. A professor beloved by both colleagues and by thousands of fine arts and IT students at Humber College for nearly 40 years. He taught true understanding over memorization. He lived life with an enduring passion, which he passed on to the Swansea community at Rennie Rink, the recreation centre and Bloor West as a whole. The inspiring Ontario landscape gave him peace of mind and a doorway to creative possibilities. He was particularly fond of Belfountain and Toronto's High Park, which he enjoyed with his family and close friends, whom he cherished deeply. Friends may call at the Turner & Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor St. W., at Windermere, east of the Jane Subway, on Monday from 6 – 9 p.m. Funeral Service will be held in the Chapel on Tuesday, October 13, 2015 at 3:30 p.m. If desired, remembrances may be made to Crohn's and Colitis Canada. Online condolences may be made through
