To my dear friend Erol, you had left a big hole in my heart, you have been a big part in my music journey. The best MENTOR that anybody can have. Thank you so much for being a part of my life. Missed you heaps. Thanks a Million.

Saddened by the news of Erol's passing. As a fellow foundation member of the Westsiders, we had many great times playing the music of the day. Erol was a perfectionist and very talented musician. Great memories. R.I.P. Tony & Rosie Eadie

My thoughts are with Anna, Phil and the rest of the family as you celebrate Erol's life. His love for music and his family was always evident, always turning up for family events, having a good old chat and spending time with his family and friends. I remember watching him during a gig at a local Richmond park one summer and you could see the glint in his eyes as he performed onstage. One of life's true gentlemen, who will be sorely missed. Whilst I won't be with you to celebrate the life of Erol my thoughts are with the family. Lots of love Steve Nemeth (Phil's brother in law and drinking buddy)

Will miss you Uncle. Have great memories of you and your drums in Marsden Road in Greymouth. RIP. Xxx
