Always a smile on his face, and a joke out of his mouth. The Coleman Family will miss you. God has you know ❤

Eric was a great mentor, friend, musician, and role model. He worked really hard at keeping a positive memorable legacy. It was great seeing him play the keyboards in the E-Water Band, and it was extra special when he brought out the keytar. He always made sure that I was “handling business first.” Eric led an inspirational life, and he will be missed. My prayers go to his family and friends.

Eric was a great guy and so talented and friendly! He made me laugh and I will miss him dearly at the TD Garden usher co-worker and hearing him play at Birch Street Bistro in Roslindale MA. My prayers and condolences to the family. May God give you comfort and healing.

One-Of-A- Kind, a true brother!!
Eric always made the day special, entertaining and one hell of a time when we all were together! Always welcomed at our home, a source of genuine friendship, always a gentleman and never self-,centered. Eric was always ready to help someone, a solid friend, committed professional and possessed an undying loyalty to his wife, Debbie and their family! He was always aglow with good spirit and warmth! Eric will always remain 'unforgettable', endeared and horribly missed! Thank you, Eric, for the countless hilarious times and some of the best chapters in our lives!!

So sorry to hear about Eric's death. We often saw him out on the golf course and he always had a big smile on his face and love in his heart. Eric and Debra were a great couple and we are so sad that he will only be with Debra in her heart and in her memories. We hope that she will hold all of her happy memories tight. Love you Debra. xo

Both my wife Gilda and myself Joe McElroy both express our sorrow to Eric's family. He was the type of individual who always broke out a smile which radiated to everyone around. You will be surely missed by all your friends at Polcaris. The true leader of E Water band will be missed by all.
