Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds remembers Eric

ABC has paid tribute to Eric from Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds who passed away late last month.

He turned 86 in March and was seen in the show with energetic young Aiden.

He migrated to Australia in 1957, having been a carpenter who then imported timber from South East Asia. He leaves behind two sons, and four grandchildren who live in Batemans Bay.

Eric is the second of the elderly cast members from the Sydney nursing home to pass away, after Grace died, aged 89.


  1. I was devastated when I read this online last night. Eric and Aiden’s relationship was just beautiful to watch as it developed. Aiden really did help Eric so much.

  2. Aiden was so kind to Eric, he gave him sunshine in his twilight years. What a beautiful kind little boy, Loved the show, Australia fell in love with it. Can’t wait for a new Series. RIP Eric.
