I am so sad to learn of Eric's passing. I remember carpooling to Kindergarten and watching King Kong at Eric's house. I am glad that we ran into each other a few years ago in Little Italy. May his family be comforted by wonderful memories during this difficult time.

My family shares in your sorrow with the loss of Eric. I was very fortunate to have worked with Eric for more than 25 years. Eric and I were not only co-workers but good friends, celebrating many milestones especially in our family lives. Eric always had a story to tell and he loved to talk about Michael and Emily. His welcoming smile will be missed.

Howard and Dorothy, you have joined a group that no one wishes to join - the group of bereaved parents. There will be bad days ahead and worse days but eventually, you will be able to talk about your son and you will not cry. You will be able to remember the wonderful, happy times you had with your beloved son. You will be able to smile again and you will be able to laugh. You are not alone. There are many of us who are members of this awful group and we are with you. You will not "get over" your son's death but you will learn to live with the new reality of a world without Eric. Remember, you are not alone.

Eric was a long time member of the Spok family - 24 years! He cared about this extended family and gave it his all to our mission. A gentle giant, he was known for his work ethics and genuinely cared about people...he will be sorely missed. Our hearts go out to his family and our prayers to help them cope with his untimely departure.

Rest in Peace Eric, God Bless!

I went to Randallstown High School with Eric. We were not "close" I cant even say we were "friends" But he was kind to me. He was friendly. He spoke to me even tho we werent in the same social circles. He smiled, often. If nothing else, He will be forever remembered as being kind to those he didnt have to be kind to. Thats what stays with me the most over the years. May he rest in peace and I hope his family, frineds, and loved ones will find some small solace in knowing he was well thought of and remembered.

Justin Collins

I had the pleasure of working for and with Eric for almost 10 years. He was always the easiest person to talk to and constantly positive. There was hardly a time you could talk with Eric that he was not smiling or laughing. I had the fortune to travel with Eric on many awards trips and there are many memories I shared with him that I will keep close to my heart. He loved his kids more than words can describe and he will be greatly missed by all who were lucky enough to cross his path. I am still shocked and saddened but am a better person both professionally and personally for knowing Eric. For this I am forever thankful. Rest in peace my friend.
