Eric has lived in Redlands with his wife, Pauline, for 47 years. He and Pauline have been married for 60 years and have two grown sons and four grandchildren.
Eric is a retired Air Force Pilot and Systems Engineer and was a college professor for 21 years.
When he’s not enjoying a brisk walk or a quick swim, Eric is deeply involved in all aspects of community theater. He has performed in sixteen summer musicals at the Redlands Bowl and numerous plays at Redlands Footlighters, LifeHouse Theater, the University of Redlands, San Bernardino Valley College, and the Rialto Community Players. When he’s not on stage, he’s backstage building sets, painting sets, and making the magic happen.
“I’m looking forward to enjoying the Gala with friends and having fun as one of this year’s dancers,” says with a grin. “And, of course I want to raise money for our wonderful Redlands Symphony.”
