He has worked in the plant industry for the past twenty-five years, spending the past year at Cameron LNG as a Planning and Scheduling Supervisor. Eric was an incredibly hard worker with a drive to build a life for his family and his devotion helped him form many friendships and relationships leaving a lasting impact on everyone he worked with and knew.
