    Bert Stoltenborg made an announcement that Eric Desart passed away yesterday.

    Eric was a moderator for this forum for a period of time - and was a rather brilliant man in the field of acoustics.........

    He will be missed....

    I am always saddened to hear of someone passing away who has contributed to our craft, imparting knowledge and ideas, teaching, etc., whether I knew them personally or not.

    My condolences to you, or to anyone else who felt the obvious privilege in knowing him.

    In the past I've been on the acoustics forum (which seems to be defunct) and talked with Bert and Eric on threads that you (Rod) also took part. What an apparently nice and gentle man Eric seemed although he could certainly get wound up with certain "snake oil" merchants... ;) What a very knowledgeable and helpful person we have lost! Rest in peace.

    Though Eric tended to be rather firm, and some might say of terse opinion, regarding acoustics... He was always a man of conviction. Always only wanting to be sure that good information and accuracy of that wisdom were passed along.

    A brilliant man none the less. He will indeed be missed.

    Rest in Peace Eric and condolences to his family and friends.

    Aw man...i just saw this. I still recall as far back as 14ish years ago when everything i was trying to study on and learn Erics name was always on the answer to the post that i dug up.

    I am personally saddened by his passing.

    Rod, I know you and he were great friends so while we have all lost a true leader in Eric, I extend my condolences to you personally for your loss.
