It is very sad to hear about the loss of Eric and I wish to pass on my greatest sympathy's to his close family and friends.
I used the library quite a lot over the years and he was always able to help with any enquiry. I was always in awe of the facts he could remember and his local knowledge. It is rare to find someone with such passion for history and the area in which they live.
I have many of his books. He will be a great miss to the whole community.

I worked with Eric at the Local Studies Centre in North Shields as part of my work with North Tyneside libraries in the 1980's. I loved my time there. A great team headed up by Eric, a quiet man with a huge local knowledge and a passion for his subject.

I was one of Eric’s carers. It was a pleasure knowing Eric, I never heard him complain about anything, and always knew the answer to anything we asked him, he is going to be missed by all the carers who looked after him
RIP Eric ❤️
