Damn. What a brave dude. I sent him messages from time to time because I felt I had to, his responses to other people’s health problems were so selfless.
Unbelievably impressive and inspirational.
Sad news for sure. Like others have said he seemed like a great guy. Another one gone to join The Great Gig in the Sky.
I was afraid of this, because in the last private conversation we had he had told me that the new treatments had stopped being effective, and I hadn't seen any posts from him lately. Why is it that so many good people die too young, and too many F*****S live forever? Life really isn't fair! God Bless You Eric. The world was a better place with you in it, and there will always be a hole in my heart now that you're gone. Hopefully you're in a big jam session now with Jimi, Duane, Tom, SRV, and all the others that we lost too soon!
Eric was one of the first to respond to one of my posts when I first came to the forum. I knew he wasn't well, but it's still unexpected, sad news. He'll be missed.
Damn! Suffer no more my friend.
Thank you Harry for sharing the sad news of Eric's passing. We were lucky to have had a short moment to share a meal and feel the man's strength.
I agree that Paul and Eric were cut from the same cloth. Both very good and kind people and they'll be missed.
Sincere condolences to Eric's family and friends...
Damn... perspective comes crashing in. He was a good guy; kind, thoughtful, compassionate.
RIP, will miss his posts , he was so kind & encouraging to me & i appreciated it very much
I had nothing love and encouragement from him, during my transplant. I didn’t know of his situation.
It’s the givers and people who help one another that are the back bone of this world.
Thanks Eric for your kind words to me.
RIP Play on
Rest in Peace.
RIP brother. Peace & comfort for his family!
Another guitar friend of mine, Scott, not long before he died of pancreatic cancer earlier this year, told me that he felt like there was a concrete block sitting on his pelvis. Eric, like my friend Scott, bore incredible pain.
I'm sure that I am not alone in having lost several friends to cancer of the pancreas. I have also known a couple of survivors. Because the symptoms are often not apparent until the cancer has spread, diagnosis is too late.
Here's a link to information from Mayo Clinic on symptoms, which should not be ignored:
I remember Scott having lower back pain for several months before he was diagnosed. He was in his mid-60s, and very active physically, so I thought his back pain was the kind many people of his age feel. When his cancer was diagnosed, he was in Stage IV.
Another guitar buddy seems to be surviving colon cancer. Though he is in his late 50s, he had never had a colonoscopy until he became seriously ill. A colonoscopy years earlier may have resulted in the easy removal of a benign polyp, rather than a colostomy and chemotherapy and neuropathy in his hands, which fortunately is abating somewhat.
I'm sorry to hear this. RIP, sir.
Ah man... Thanks for letting us know, Harry.
He was a really nice guy, always upbeat and helpful.
Thank you for sharing. What he shared and timing really stood out because someone in my house was having a tough run with cancer. I kept looking for his posts and signs of being well and so appreciated his carry on attitude. His ways, my wife's and others I've met in recent years were big lessons for me.
He was a great inspiration on how to live in the moment. A big loss to our community and the world.
