    I ran into Eric not long ago. I am truly saddened to hear of his passing. He was an awesome person, colleague & family man. I learned a lot from him over the years and will miss our periodic programming chats. Rest easy Eric and it was a pleasure knowing you. My condolences to his dear family.

    Eric was one of the men who literally changed my life by giving me a chance at PPD in 2000 as part of the programming team. I only worked with Eric at PPD for a few years, but those years were a turning point in my life. He was such a good friend. Those lazy summer days after work going fishing - I will never forget. This breaks my heart. Rest in peace Eric. You will be missed.
