LIC Motorsports was informed this past Monday that a dear customer/friend of the shop, Eric Houts was no longer with us. He had surcumed to a long battle of depression and opted to end his very short life way to early. Eric was a customer who had been coming to our shop for well over 3 years. His passion was his 2007 Subaru STi. We assisted him with anything and everything he needed but he was his own man, one that had so much talent, he literally took his car and built one heck of a track worthy beast.
He was a avid supporter of this shop; he came to Subiefest, Super Lap Battle last year, and Redline Time Attack season opener this year with us. He is missed by all of us here, he was an asset to our shop and a great spirit.
I just can't wrap my head around how this all came to this. He was always so happy, always with a smile, and always seemed at peace. I'm just blown away and deeply saddened, although I didn't know him like some others did, I feel a great loss for him and this shop will not be the same without him dropping in and saying hello.
It's a crummy day to say the least and I can only hope he has found his peace that he truly deserved.
We are offering a memorial sticker in Eric's honor, all proceeds will go to Eric's younger siblings college fund.
Here are the details:
-Sticker is $10, (each.)
-Offered in two colors (black lettering or white lettering)
-Measure 6.5" around (yes they are big)
Again, every cent that is generated from this is going directly to the Houts family. I hope we sell hundreds of these. The company I'm using for these stickers have been nice enough to donate all production cost and time to generate these stickers, the owner of the company, his wife works with Eric's mom...and is happy to help out. The stickers are a bumper sticker material, they are satin finish and printed for both colors. They are designed to last a long time, the material being used is as high end as it comes. Hats off to Centric Signs (www.centricsigns.com) for helping the Hout's family as well.
