Peacefully at the Golden Plough Lodge, Cobourg, on March 21st, 2021. Beloved and loving husband of the late Eleanor. Predeceased by his brother Dennis and nephew Michael. Eric will be very sadly missed and forever lovingly remembered by his niece Karen and her husband Mike Tyler. He was a cherished, proud and adoring great uncle of Erica and her wife Debs, Michael and his wife Seet Mei, and Phillipe and his wife Sophie. Eric was so very delighted and proud to also be the great-great uncle of Jack, Aaron and Charlie, Christopher and Sophie, Oliver, Ava, Arthur, Henry and Bertie. He was also a most caring and supportive step-father to Eleanor's daughters, Janet and Ellen Munro (Eustace) and Janet's son Michael (Sarah) and grandson Asher. Eric will always be in our hearts and never forgotten.
Eric I will miss you. Our friendship was over a span of thirty years. We had so many happy times together with Eleanor and Ian. Vacations and family times. Our wonderful chats on Saturday mornings. Talk of the war and current events. Rest In Peace Eric you had a truly long wonderful life. Love Jayne
I met Eric & Eleanor when I used to clean their apartment for them at Falcon Towers. I very much admired the way Eric cared for Eleanor as her health declined, and saw his pain as he realized she needed to go into longterm care. What a lovely couple they were. Prayers to the family.
Your visits to see us when we lived in France, Oxfordshire and my visits to you and Auntie Eleanor in Cobourg has given us lots of happy memories. Uncle Eric you will always be in our thoughts and you will be deeply missed. Lot's of love xxxxxx
Very sorry for your loss. My father, George, was your father's friend at the Golden Plough. Dad and Erik's were next to each other in Blacklock House. I know that my Dad and Erik enjoyed many hours of conversation and recently Dad visited Erik in his room for quieter time spent together. We all grieve the loss of Erik.
I had the pleasure of knowing Eric and I must say that he was one of, if not, the nicest man I have ever met. He will be greatly missed and he was very much loved.
We always considered you as Grandad. I will always remember the drives in your beige Ford Cortina. Drinking in The Plough in Hanney, watching the football. A true War hero and my hero. We will miss you and love you always x x x
Always up beat and cheerful, we knew Eric first as a neighbour in Falcon Towers, welcoming in the New Year with himself and Eleanor and a wee dram, then as a fellow resident with Joe in the Golden Plough. My sincere condolences to the family on his loss.
Words will never be enough to say how much we will miss you. You were far more than an Uncle. Love you always. Karen and Mike
Uncle Eric, the most beautiful man inside and out. You have set the standard high, for us all to follow and we will try our best to honour this. You told us to travel as far as you can, as often as you can and for as long as you can and we promise that we will xx
