His Life

Witty, Playful, Humourous, A Teacher Par Excellence

Our beloved Eric, was born in the city of legendary hospitality, known as Buea, Cameroon to Papa Anangfac and to Mama Emilia Ephanga. A curious and intelligent young boy, he attended Government Primary School Buea, Frankharcourt High School, CCAS Kumba and the University of Yaoundé. His flair and dexterity, coupled with his unique wit and intelligence, he is most known as a Teacher par excellence at the Seat of Wisdom College in Fontem, Cameroon. There, he mentored many students who later became his lifelong friends and some, his confidants.

He relocated to the United States in 2002 with his family and settled in the Dallas, Texas metroplex. Eric was a fighter, strong willed and had an unshakeable faith. He was diagnosed with a rare lung disease in 2008. Despite his failing health, his love for family was unwavering and a source of his strength. He sent Christmas cards, made calls, checked on loved ones, sent cheerful Whatsapp messages, prayers, meditations, devotions to his family and friends all over the world. He remembered birthdays and was a master of conveying his thoughts in writing to suit the occasion.

He leaves behind what we call the Eric Village - adult children, friends, family and students from Seat of the Wisdom College to mourn and fondly remember him.
