Erik was a great person. He will surely be missed, especially with the CCR dive community. RiP.

I was on a Lake Superior trip with Erik a few years back. Great guy ... he very much loved diving the wrecks. He always came up well after the rest of us, and on the way back to shore he'd recount his dive. His enthusiasm was infectious, and because of his penchant for researching the wrecks before he dived them it was like listening to him talk about a visit with an old friend.

He was way too young, and with way too much life left to live, to be talking about him in the past tense.

What a terrible loss for the diving community! My condolences to his family and friends, and especially his buddies on this trip.

I also met him twice and he seemed like a real nice fellow, he was going to show me some lake Washington dive sites after my mod 1 class.

Condolences to his family.

RIP Erik, see you on the other side.
