Eric was a steadfast and sensitive spirit, who touched the lives of others with generosity, thoughtfulness, creativity and love. He will be in our hearts forever. Eric passed away on February 13, 2020. His autopsy revealed advanced, intestinal cancer. A sudden unexpected death. On January 22, Eric celebrated his 70th birthday. After moving from Toronto to Nova Scotia in September, he embraced his new life there, particularly its peace and its neighbourliness. He laughed, he loved, and he enjoyed meeting new people. Eric was a filmmaker. At the age of 17, he enrolled at Sheridan College. There, as the first student to explore a film degree, he won an award for his first documentary. He went on to create high budget, television commercials and documentaries. Eric brought over three decades of media design, production, directing and marketing expertise to his work in public awareness filmmaking, and the promotion energy-based wellness therapies. Working from a core belief that “the human story” is a critical aspect of effective communications and learning, Eric formed strategic alliances to produce and deliver social-issue information and learning materials, as well as individual and group emotional training and counselling. Among his subject specialties are emotional self-care, trauma and PTSD . His award winning, ground-breaking, feature documentary OPERATION: Emotional Freedom – The Answer, a documentary about PTSD and veterans, has been sold and screened internationally from locations including the front lines in Afghanistan to the White House. Eric had such a huge caring soul and in spite of his huge success in more commercial documentaries, this documentary meant the most to him. His recent projects include The Unseen Therapist, and Hellfire to Hope exploring the emotional connection between self worth, health and healing in diverse populations from survivors of ual abuse to ex-convicts. As a result of documenting and treating trauma and emotional healing, Eric learned from the best in energy psychology and incorporated this knowledge into filming and private coaching for clients around the world. His work brought him to many parts of the globe – from the African continent to Israel, and Mexico to Canada, crossing countries, states and cities but never leaving his focus on improving the human condition. Life is inexplicable. There is no way to understand that we should receive such enormous tragedy in the midst of such a beautiful new beginning. And yet, there is solace in that Eric passed on when his life was full of happiness. He will be so missed by his partner in adventure and love, Gayle Grin. He will also be sadly missed by his sister Tina Hinojosa and her husband Jose J Hinojosa Rodriguez, his long time friend and previous spouse Anne-Marie Huurre, many cousins, Gayle’s sons Cedric Grin and Liam Grin, and their partners, as well as colleagues and friends. Eric was loved, respected and honoured. He will always be an inspiration and light in our hearts, a remarkable life that touched so many. Cremation has taken place under the care and direction of H. M. Huskilson’s Funeral Homes & Crematorium, Barrington. There will be a private celebration of his life in Ontario. Donations in his memory can be made to Kids in Plan International (plan-international.org/keeping-children-safe-plan-international).
