Former ISA Member Passes

Eric and I drove together on one of the sign postings on the Dupage River. He was driving and I started looking thru this huge collection of music in his truck. We liked a lot of the same kind of music, mostly guitar oriented stuff and Eric happened to be a smokin’ axeman himself. He was a south sider too and didn’t live far from me at all. Eric knew the Kank and the Mazon really well and he loved fishing topwaters too. So in short between music and fishin’ we a lot in common. He came over a couple of with his girlfriend (future wife) and both of them got along great with my wife. We became pretty close friends and he even watched my house and took care of our cats when we went on vacation. Over the years we went a few concerts together and fished local rivers crankin’ rock n’ roll up to “11” on the way. Later on Eric got the house in Indiana and the time for epic day long Kank wades got stretched pretty thin on both our ends. We did however keep in touch on the phone and I don’t think more than a few months ever went by without a really lengthy phone conversation. We did keep well enough in touch with talking and texting , that I was kind of shocked when I saw his picture on Facebbok and on the Guitar Center site where he worked. He grew his hair out and now he really, looked like a rocker.

I am trying not get mushy, but I am really going to miss this guy. In all the years I knew him I can’t remember a single real disagreement or a moment of not genuinely enjoying his company. In reading all the posts on his FB page I am not the only one. He has made quite an impression on folks and 47 years was just too short of a time for him to be here.


This is from a really hot July day on the Kank. If I remember right we hitting them pretty great that day.
