  2. Dear Bruce, Joan and Pehr,
    My sincerest sympathies go out to you at this difficult time.
    I knew Eric from the beginning days of the Rocket when I helped him open the first Rocket. I will always remember the hours and days and weeks we spent prior to the store opening, folding and hanging shirts, counting transfers, cutting out styrofoam squares to go in the display grid, painting walls and the list goes on and on. He was a very hard worker with a huge passion for the store. I will always remember and appreciate the opportunities he gave me.
    My condolences,
    Beki Hunt

    Dear Hedstrom Family,
    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Eric.

    I met Eric about 13 years ago on a snowboard/ski trip to Rossland. He had just finished university and we ended up being roommates for awhile on 7th street just as he was opening up his store.

    I remember his passion and hardwork and kindness for all those that he cared about. I will always remember his smile. I feel honoured to have known him.

    My condolences to your family.
    Julianne Casper

    Dear Bruce, Joan and Peter,

    I will always remember being so impressed with Eric for turbo-charging his car! How cool was that!

    I didn’t get to spend much time with Eric, but when I did, his warmth, kindness, and gentle manner always impressed me. He was thoughtful and kind, and always gracious. And a rocket scientist to boot!

    Eric was truly a good person and he will be deeply missed, fondly remembered.

  8. I won’t be able to make it to the memorial, but I do want to share my sympathies and condolences for the loss of Eric.

    It’s weird to think of how long I knew him. He gave me a lot of opportunities and was always there when I needed some help. I’ll always appreciate that. The atmosphere he created at The Rocket made for the best retail job I ever had.

    I’m so sorry to hear of what happened. I hope he’s found what peace he needed.
