Eriq Neale 1968 – 2012
On Friday, Eriq Neale passed away after a year long battle with cancer. He didn’t like the term battle. It didn’t feel like a war. It simply felt like an invader had taken up residence in his body and with a 0% prognosis, there was no war to win, only a fight to continue to live well as long as possible. He did defy the odds.
Eriq did not wish to be known for cancer. He wished to be known for his life achievements and loves. In 44 years he did manage to accumulate quite list of them and certainly earned the right to be proud. If you look down the list, a theme emerges of a man who lived to give to community. He gave of himself to communities in ways that supported those communities in various ways at different times in his life.
