RIP Eric Bridges 29/8/1953 -11/8/2017
A true Water Man who Loved and lived life to the fullest!
Mat Surfer, Kneel Boarder, Spear Fisherman & Soul Bro!
Thalassophile (n.) A lover of the Sea, Someone who loves the Sea and Ocean.
SCUMM Brother & Best Friend. Our Mat Man, Eric 'da bolt 'Bridges, has finally succumbed to his battle with melanoma and slipped away peacefully on Friday night, 6.30 pm.
I had been thinking of him all day at work when his daughter Julie rang me to say that her Dad did not have a lot of time left and that we should head up the following day to say our final farewells. So when I received another call later that night saying he had finally passed away, there was some relief amongst our tears as we knew that he was finally released from his pain and battle that he had endured the past 10 months.
With all the Love and Support that we could give him, and to make that journey as comfortable as we could, true SCUMM Love for one of our most beloved Friend, Mate and Mentor...Gunna miss you so much my dear friend.
"You might have beat me to the gate, but I will one day join you again soon enough....save me a spot in the line up."
RIP my Friend,
Adam and Eric
