Errol was one of the regulars at the morning workout. It was not a minyan but there were at least 10 regulars who interchanged workout with coffee.

I always enjoyed chatting with him while we were riding our bicycles. He was a news buff either reading or watching the news. A fervent Democrat, he related his experiences the the Clintons, the IRS (as their counsel), and his role at DL Piper. He was never braggadocio despite his achievements in politics, law, and finance. He last advice to me was to only invest in art that I liked and would hang in my own home.

Errol was quick witted, really the king of the one liners at Trump but never in a mean spirited way. I did note that he was very precise in his speech and language, the hallmarks of a great attorney. If I said something a little askew he would gently correct me.

Everyone at Trump who knew him misses his humor, wit and genuinely caring nature. We all extend our condolences to Libby who Errol was devoted to. One final note was that Errol joined the Board of Directors early on, as he wanted to make sure the Condo association got off to a good start.

Errol and I shared an interesting and wonderful year as roommates in New York while obtaining our LLMs at NYU IN 1967-68. He was a bright, hardworking friend and our careers took us in separate directions. I loved our evening walks and conversations.
His passing was truly a shock to me. My deep condolences.
