Everyone who knew Eric would agree he was one of a kind. He loved to open his home to anyone passing through. Eric enjoyed the finer things in life such as cooking and music. No matter the outcome, he always displayed his big and contagious smile. In his spare time Eric enjoyed cycling, walking trails, skiing in the local mountains, and anything involving water. Until we meet again.
