Eric immigrated to Wilkie, SK April 23, 1928 at age 11. At 40 years old, he ran a propane business in Fort St. John, BC, before moving to Salmon Arm in 2000. He enjoyed golfing and was very good at it; even playing with the pros. A jokester in any circumstance and a generous person by heart; helping many in the Filipino community financially and also helping out others by randomly handing out gift cards for groceries.
Thank you to all the doctors and nurses at Mt. Ida Mews for the care given to Eric.
Eric has been buried at Mt. Ida Cemetery beside Vivian.
