    As a member of the fraternity, Phi-Gamma-Delta, of which Eric was a member of, let me say that we are all saddened to just have learned of his recent passing. Eric brought a light and energy into any room, unlike any others that we had ever met. All of our members with the family our deepest sympathies and peace. Eric was a one of a kind person. His smile, good ways and laughter can still be heard ringing in the hallways of our fraternity. Bless his beloved soul.

    Was home last week and heard of Eric’s sudden passing. So many memories that include our families and many more on the west side of Wichita. Eric was one of a kind and I can only imagine how he will be missed. May the Peace which passes all understanding be with you all.

    The world is a less interesting place without Eric in it. He could light up a room with jokes and discussions of all types. No discussion was complete without an update on what Max was up to. Big E will be missed but never forgotten.
