Default We lost a Brother and a friend

On Wednesday January 30, 2013, off duty Sheriff's Deputy Eric Mertl was killed in a traffic collision in Burlingame,Ca.

I knew Eric over 20 years. I worked at an agency near Millbrae and assisted Eric many times on mutual aid. In 2005, Eric left Millbrae P.D. to work at the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office as a Deputy Sheriff.
Services will be at ST. Dunstan church in Millbrae, Ca. on Wednesday 02/06/13 at 1100 hrs.

I will miss you Eric. Rest in peace.

Eric was truly one of the nicest people I knew. In 30+ years (since he and I were explorers together) I can't recall a hard word between us. He will be missed greatly by anyone who knew him.
