I heard this on WCYB but not sure of any details...they did say that police we investigating and belive that this was an accident. Sad story for such a young man.

Sorry for what happened. I guess my mom was right, nothing good or good for you is ever going on after midnight.

Maybe nothing good or good for you is happening after midnight. For Eric though life wasnt about what was good or good for him. He lived every day to the UPMOST and so full of life that he certainly lived a whole lot to be so young. It is very tragic and unexpected especially to anyone who knew him because someone like him always seemed invincible, he was fearless.
My thoughts prayers and condolences go out to his family, he will always be with you.
sorry

I completely agree with you... Although Eric's death seems umtimely and unfair, he did live his life to the fullest, and although his death came as a complete shock at least he lived his life up until the time of death... I have seen so many people suffer for years knocking on deaths door for many reason such as cancer, heart problems, etc...and it breaks my heart to see someone suffer like that... So we should be thankful for the great life that Eric lived and that he did not have to leave this world suffering or unhappy... Rest In Peace Eric you are in Gods Hands Now!

Eric was a friend to all and never had a harsh word to say about anyone. He gave selflessly of himself for our communities youth. I am proud to call myself his FRIEND.

i rode by the funeral home today and after losing my father recently decided that I wasn't ready to face that quite yet, again. Though a thought of Eric passed through my mind as I thought of the recent tragedy I have dealt with. That is that I felt very alone after dad and I had lost a lot of faith in many things. One thing that always makes me laugh is Eric doing the limbo under the black tape in the line at Harees. I worked there several years ago and I always enjoyed seeing him and his normal crowd come in.
I am so sorry for his family and there's no words that can truely comfort them at this point in time, though I want them to know that the infamous Eric Albano will live in and through every one whom has ever met him. He is a legend and a role model to so very many people. He touched me and I live to have an ounce of the courage that he had everyday. My heart is broken and are so many others. May God be with his family friends and anyone who got the chance to meet Eric. And may God be with him for he has his hands full watching over all of us. A special prayer for a special person
You will be missed greatly Eric

How did he "fall"?...then it is tragic. Was he tripped?.....then it could be manslaughter Did he stumble?....Sad. Was he pushed?....murder. Was he drunk?.....neglegent on the part of the server at the bar

I too think it is sad that such a young life was lost. But i also think that how it happened is important here. I have heard several people say that one of our local Drs was with him when it happened, so obviously he had immediate care. Anyway it serves as complete validation that none of us are promised or deserve our next breath.....it is a gift.

fate thats what it was plus im sure the bartenders at macadoos arent as innocent as they seem. i heard they told Erics parents that he had 2 beers, which is supposed to be the limit. Ive ordered in there before and they have served me until i quit ordering. I think his parents should check his card receipts and then neglect on the servers will be justified Drunk i doubt it, mayb a drink or 2 but over his limit who knows.
you live and you die its unfair sometimes but he certainly lived a lot

This has turned into a world of "blame someone else". Did you know Eric? If you did you know he wouldn't put blame on anyone. He fell. Does it really matter why? Does it change anything? Will it bring Eric back? No. Pray for his family. Pray for his friends. Live like Eric did, happily!
We love you Eric and will miss you greatly.

Ive been in Macados several times when Eric was in and he was a great guy.He was very outgoing, and stayed to himself.What happened to him was so tragic and no one should be concerned with blaming anybody.It just goes to show you that when its your time, its your time and you dont ever know when that is.Rest assured, Eric lived his life by example and there is nothing negative anyone can say.He enjoyed soccer and being involved with children. May God give his family comfort in their time of despair.You are in my prayers.RIP Eric.

If you were not there that night, then I think your comments need to be to yourself about the condition Eric was in and the way the bartenders are at Macados. He did not have a drink or two over his limit!
