    I’m so sorry to hear of Eric’s passing. I first met him about 20 years ago when I had Ray & Bob working for me. We all had a lot of fun, laughter, and did a lot of work together through those years. I had hoped to take him for one of his favorite Stampede Breakfasts the same day he died. Now I know why he didn’t answer.
    He was a good man with a good heart and always had time to answer my crazy plumbing questions and help me. I will miss his down to earth and quirky ways.

  4. I just heard of Eric’s passing and offer my sincere condolences to his family. Eric was always so helpful on short notice with small plumbing jobs. And I enjoyed chatting with him on a variety of topics. May he rest in peace.
