We were so sorry to read in the paper that Eric had passed. Over the past 4 years, we have hired Eric on numerous occasions to take down trees for us on our property, as well as referred him to others because we were so satisfied with his work. We found him to be a wonderful man, very business oriented and professional, so kind, and so proud of his family. We have loaded a few pictures we took of him doing the work he loved so much and was so passionate about. He will be missed.
