He is predeceased by his mother, Caroline Elford (1943), and father Alexander Sceviour (2007).
Words could never express the positive impact that Eric had on us, or the love we felt for him .He was a wonderful, caring husband and father. He was a funny, kind, and soft spoken man. He loved the woods and spent many, many hours hunting and fishing.
He loved to walk and greet people along the way, stopping for a chat whenever he could.
His friendship and kindness toward people will be greatly missed.
The family would like to express heartfelt thanks to all who put forth kindness and care in dad’s final days.
There will be a private family viewing from Fillatre's Funeral Home, 218 Curling on Saturday. The Funeral service will be
held on Sunday, October 18th from St. Mary's Anglican church, Curling with Reverend Deacon Cynthia Haines Turner
officiating. Interment to follow at Mt. Patricia cemetery.
In Lieu of flowers donations can be made to the “Cuddle Bed” program at the Palliative Care Unit, Western
Memorial Regional Hospital.
