Eric was the current editor of TWS but sadly passed away yesterday.
From the Transworld site:
“Today we bring you the unfortunate news that editor Eric Stricker, a cherished member of the TransWorld SKATEboarding family, has passed away. He was a fine editor and an even finer friend, whose memory will continue to live in the pages of TWS for years to come.
Our thoughts, prayers, and hearts go out to the Stricker family.
Please share a story, a memory, or a kind word for our friend and fellow staffer, who was, and still is an inspiration to all” – head to the Transworld site page here.
