This incredible soul touched countless people throughout his support for the arts, animal rescue and young people in their pursuit of higher education. Eric loved world travel, dogs, the Phillies, Predators Hockey and the Grateful Dead.

Our hearts are broken but we have so much to celebrate - all of us whose lives were saved by his medical skill and changed by his love. So long and farewell, sweet friend of ours, until we meet again.
