So sorry to hear of Eric’s passing. One of my memories of Eric is when I went cod fishing with him and Pop (Bert Rideout) just off Stern Rocks in King’s Point . Eric said ‘for years I fished out past Cape John , and here I am fishing in the woods’. We were close enough to shore that he could see bottom. Hugs to the family . Melanie Rideout Bonavista, NL
