The following was taken from Eric's QRZ page.   

"I retired from the USAF in 1991, flying Cargo planes, after hamming aeronautical mobile and from exotic extremes such as Alaska, England, Greece and Okinawa, Japan. I also spent time on the air from Panama, Diego Garcia BIOT, and the "Black Pearl of the Pacific" (If you know the phrase, you know where I'm talking about) After retiring, I was looking for a low-stress job, so I ended up teaching elementary science in the public school system here in San Antonio. Perhaps one of these days I'll get around to setting up a ham station at the school.   And after 12 years of that I retired again."  

Eric is survived by a cousin, Jodi Lin and her husband Bob Huybers of San Angelo TX.
