Retired RNC officer, Eric’s passion was to help and protect others. He joined the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary in 1967. Throughout his career he worked diligently to keep the people of St. John’s safe. He was promoted to Staff Sergeant and took great pride in his work. He went onto work in security at a number of job sites around Newfoundland. He loved to go fishing, hunting and skidooing with his buddies. To all who knew him, he always spoke very highly of his children and grandchildren who he was incredibly proud of. The love of his life, Mary has been his rock throughout his entire life and especially in the last few years, for that, he is eternally grateful.
A special heartfelt thanks of appreciation to the staff at Lanes Retirement Living in Airport Heights. The level of care, compassion and love shown to Eric and our family was incredible. We can never repay the kindness that we received.
