We were so saddened to hear of Eric’s passing. We had the pleasure of knowing him as I worked for the family in 1968.
We kept in touch regularly for many years, calling on him on our trips to Colac from Queensland.
He was a kind and caring gentleman.

Sympathy to Erics family. He was a kind and caring gentleman. I have memories as a child and teenager of Eric and his family. My mother(Lila Ross) was a friend of the family.

Eric was a true gentleman, good neighbour and was always up for a chat. Condolences to his family.
My deepest sympathy to Eric’s family. What a wonderful kind caring man. He was our neighbour in Pollack st for a very long time Even though he wasn’t my Uncle I still called him Uncle Eric to this day. Lots of chats over the fence and playing in his yard with his nieces when they came to stay from came Melbourne.
Wonderful memories from Adriana
Remembering Eric as a very kind man, very community minded and generous with his friendship. I always loved our chats whether it be about his many interests of local history, plants in the garden and he’d talk of his family and friends.
Eric was a very active member of Do Care which is where I got to know him. He was the first to welcome me into my new role there, which I always appreciated. I found that this kind gesture, and his natural friendly self, was Eric to everyone – also loving a laugh or two along the way.
Condolences to Eric’s family & friends; and to his special friends John & Anne Abbott.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Eric for quite a few years, initially with my days at South West Do Care, and lately with Miller House. Eric was such a lovely welcoming gentleman. He enjoyed his time with both SWDC and Miller House, and truly appreciated his friendship with John Abbott, his Do Care volunteer visitor. Eric’s presence, humour and banter will be greatly missed
