Eric Lankoff passed away on November 17, 2021, at the age of 69, in his home surrounded by his family. His battle with cancer showed his courage and proved that he was always ready with a smile or a laugh no matter what life threw at him. Despite his pain, Eric fought hard until the end.
Apart from his smile and sense of humor, Eric will always be remembered for his love of his family, friends, motorcycles and the open road. He was happiest when he was driving one of his 2 street bikes or when he was racing his dirt bike. The open road called to him as well driving our Motorhome or truck.
Eric met his wife Linda, of 47 years, at the general store owned by her grandparents, known in the community as Mr. & Mrs. Melanson, across the road from the family farm where Eric and his siblings grew up. They married in 1974 and eventually left the farm life and moved first to Ardrossan and then to Sherwood Park, Alberta where they built a life with their two children, Robert and Cheryl and many friends.
Eric is survived by his wife, Linda; son, Rob (Brandy); daughter, Cheryl (Jason); his grandchildren, Katelyn, Caleb, and Logan; his mother, Helen; and 5 of his 6 siblings.
A celebration of life is planned for April 23, 2022, with further details to come.
