    My deepest sympathy to you Chris and the whole family at this time of great loss. Eric was the one who gave me the opportunity to join RD Industries only fifteen months ago to work for him and then along side him. I will miss his expertise but more his wisdom and his laughter at my English jokes. May he rest in peace.

    So sorry for your loss. I enjoyed working with Eric in the mid-1970’s at Lozier Store Fixtures. Great guy!
