Eric had a very special bond with his great niece Tanya (Jason) Jamieson, who he treated like a daughter. He was so proud of all of his great nieces and nephews.
Eric loved farming and had fond memories of working on the farm. He later got into the grocery store business that moved him to London where he ran his own store before retiring. He moved back to Smiths Falls 5 years ago to be closer to family. A special thank you to the team at Willowdale and Broadview Nursing Centre for all your care and compassion.
