He worked at Consolidated Aircraft Co., served in the Army Air Corp in WWII and was the Construction Superintendent for many apartments, schools, churches, etc. in the San Diego area. Eric graduated from Central Bible Institute in MO and got his BA from the now Vanguard University in Costa Mesa, CA.
His ministry for God included serving as a hospital chaplain, going on missions trips to Africa to build schools and churches, and working with Teen Challenge.
