  15. Steve Brunelle says:

    So sorry to hear of Eric’s passing, which I just learned of. We had a lot of good times together, especially at Dodger games in the early ’80s. It was Eric that actually sparked my own lifelong love of the Dodgers, when we both began completing scorecards on each game (way back in 1979 – can it really be that long?). He was a just a pleasant, easygoing and loyal guy. We both had a lot of growing up to do and although we lost touch over the years, it’s clear from everyone’s comments here that he lived a live that was full. He touched all our lives with constant, upbeat spirit, loyalty and goodwill. We met at Dixie Canyon grade school. My memories of him from that point on are special, as he was. Eric was a rare true, faithful man who was passionate about everything and everyone in his life. Thanks for the love of the Dodgers you imparted in me, my friend. I’ll miss you.

  16. Greg Horowitz says:

    From Dixie Canyon Elementary, Millikan Jr. High and Grant High, you were always a kind and thoughtful person.
    Running cross country, sunswept drive runs, you were always there.
    Thank you for your service and friendship.
    Until we meet again.
