It is with great sorrow that I have to inform you that my husband Eric Vero passed away on Tuesday 1/3/12. Eric Vero of Northport, NY was the devoted husband of Slava, SeniorNet National Board member. He was the cherished father of Rhoda, father–in-law to William and loving grandfather of Alexander. In his long career he achieved many accomplishments. As an 18 year old he volunteered to serve in the United States Army in the 84th Infantry and was a decorated serviceman of the Battle of the Bulge. Upon his return, Eric received his education under the GI Bill and had had a brilliant career in the Oil Industry working for Chevron and Texaco. Upon his retirement he joined SeniorNet as a volunteer and founding member of SeniorNet at FSL, Huntington, Long Island. He served as chairman of the lab committee, teacher and coach; he also started and developed the computer refurbishment program in conjunction with National Grid Foundation. Thanks to his contribution SeniorNet at FSL Huntington, Long Island received many awards and proclamations and was named the number one learning center in the country.
