    Sorry for your loss. I just found out about Eric passing at the Local Union 12 picnic on Saturday. Eric worked for me at the Pittsburgh Airport project in 1971. He was an accomplished draftsman who I could always count on to complete his projects.
    I fondly remember him bringing a “pet” snake to work in a bucket. Sadly missed.

    Eric ~ Our hearts are broken. You were taken from us too soon. The only thing that gives us comfort is that all your pain and suffering is over and that you are at peace and in God’s glorious kingdom. You are the best brother. Rest in peace, Eric. Until we are reunited, you are in our hearts forever. Your final job is to be our guardian angel. We love you and we miss you.
