About Greg Eckerman:
Greg was Eric’s stepfather. A mechanical engineer by training, Greg left the Aerospace world over 20 years ago to pursue a career in Business Process Improvement, based on training and implementation of Lean Six Sigma methodologies across a wide variety of industries, world-wide.
In 18 years as Eric’s stepdad he had the joy of watching Eric grow into a sensitive, fun-loving, adventurous young man, full of promise and big dreams. He also felt the frustration of watching the corrosive effects of Eric’s opioid addiction through repeated cycles of recovery and relapse.
Since Eric’s death, Greg has worked to comprehend what happened and try to find a way to honor Eric by doing something positive with his grief. He still has more questions than answers. He wrestles frequently with the concerns and guilt over what he didn’t do that he could have and did do that he shouldn’t have and the limitations, real and self-imposed, of the step parent’s role.
