We said goodbye to our well loved Husband, Dad, Grandpa, and Great Grandpa, who passed away quietly on July 31 with family by his side, in Nanaimo Hospital, where he was well cared for in the palliative care unit. Eric is survived by his wife, Margaret, with whom he had happily celebrated their 65th Wedding Anniversary in June, his sons and daughters-in-law John (Elaine), Joe (Denise), Mike (Penny), Steve (Susan). His legacy also remains in memories and love from his 9 grandchildren and 19 Great Grandchildren. Sadly predeceased by Grandson Patrick in 2005.
Eric’s lifelong passion of woodworking was both his occupation (carpenter and teacher) and hobby and there are many of us with mementos of his expertise and creativeness. He was also an active outdoor and nature enthusiast as well as and active Kiwanian in his younger years.
A private family memorial will follow cremation.
