    I was Erics manager at Leslie’s for almost 4 years at Leslies. Our whole Leslie’s family is heart broken by the loss of Eric. Eric has been a major part in so many employees lives, as well as so many customers. There will never be anyone that could replace his contagious smile, sense of humor, or all around presence. He has been such a major support for me also giving me such a insight to life. My team (current and past) are thinking about Cindy, Xander, Athenia, and all of his family members during this incredibly difficult time. Eric was so loved by all that met him ❤️

    Eric I haven’t seen you for decades but I remember being friends with you and your family. It meant a lot to me to have been friends with you. I remember you joining the Navy and I Thank You for your service. As a vet myself, we remember our brothers and sisters in arms. I hope your heart is at peace and that your family is being comforted by the Holy Spirit. Until we meet again Eric.
