Eric Elliott RIP
Sad news. I received a phone call today from Eric's daughter Jackie telling me that her father passed away this morning of cancer. The funeral will be a private affair for just the family.
Many Sons knew Eric well. He was a former Helpmate and then a founding member of The Live Ghost Tent. He ran the sales stall and was our tent treasurer for many years.
RIP, old mate.

This is sad news. Eric was a very friendly, helpful and generous person. He made me and my children so welcome when I first came into the Sons.
I visited him with Steve about a year ago and we all went to lunch together.
Another loyal and long-standing Son has left us.
This is such dreadful news. I think we all knew he wasn’t in good health but this is such a shock. Sadly this is yet another Son we have lost this year. I always enjoyed Eric’s company and he and I always had a bit of banter when we spoke about my beloved Tottenham and his beloved Arsenal. We will raise a glass to him at our next Saps at Sea meeting in January. A true Son who will be sadly missed
Eric was one of those folk you always felt at home with, right from first meeting him. Pat and I always enjoyed his company. His absence from conventions etc for some time always left a gap. How sad that that gap has now become permanent. Eric leaves behind a lot of very happy memories.
