I worked with Erik at Cedardale Health in Haverhill. He was always a great worker with a great sense of humor. After he left I would see him once in a while at Hannafords in Hampstead and we would catch up. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Though we only knew Erik from the Hampstead Variety, we enjoyed each an every encounter with him. He always had a smile to share along with his sense of humor. May he rest in peace. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

Sending my deepest condolences to Erik's family. What a heartbreaking and unfathomable loss of such a wonderful human being. I had the privilege of working with Erik at school and enjoyed our daily conversations- mostly about family, funny stories and what projects did I have that he could do with his grandchildren. Erik was kind, gentle, hard working and conscientious- an all around great guy. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

I've known Erik since summer of 1981. We both started our jobs at EJ Systems on the same day. He was a great father, brother, son, grandfather and a great friend. I wish I had known he was gravely ill. I would have loved to talk about old times, play some Dolly or Willy music and laugh. Rest in peace my friend. You have impacted so many people with your infectious happiness and laughter. The world needs more men like you! ♡♡♡ My condolences for his entire family. Fly high friend.

So sad to hear of Eric's passing.
Eric worked each summer with us on the farm here just across from Lemyjoma Trail where he used to live.
He LOVED to be outdoors working on the property cleaning up brush and downed trees, pulling vines out of the trees, mowing the lawns when we were away on trips in our RV and generally doing anything outside to enjoy some fresh air and exercise.
He will be missed by all who knew what a kind and gentle soul he was.

RIP Eric
