Some sad news - member's passing

Postby meisen on Tue Jun 15, 2010 7:20 pm

Hi all, I just wanted to share some news I received yesterday. A friend of mine, Erik Wait, took his own life the other day. He was known to many of you I think and was a long time member of MARS (ewaitob). I don't have much more info or details that I can share but thought those that knew him through MARS would like to know.

He was living in North Dakota most recently (after leaving Madison and then Waukesha) and is survived by his wife Anya and their eight children. When I get info on how they'd like him to be remembered/donations I will post again.

wow, Erik was one ofthe very first members I met, he gave me my first corals and helped me get started in the hobby. This is so deeply sad...

Thanks for sharing this Mark.
