Eric C. Lindskog was born on December 27, 1965 in Hamden, CT, the third child of Annemarie Margenau Lindskog and Carl W. Lindskog. In 1968, the family moved to Woodbridge, CT where Eric attended Beecher Road School, Amity Middle School and Amity Regional High School. At Amity, he was elected Captain of the Varsity Football Team. He attended Clemson University and graduated with a degree in Accounting. After a stint with Levitsky and Birney Accounting in Woodbridge, Eric enrolled in the MBA program at Jones School of Business, Rice University, where he earned a degree in Finance.
After service with Anderson Consulting in Boston and Charles Schwab in San Francisco, Eric joined in 2003 with Alan Flaumenhaft, a dear childhood friend, at Social Service Coordinators in Miami Lakes, FL as Executive Vice President of Finance. In 2018 he was a founding visionary of BeneLynk, again with Al, serving as Chief Financial Officer, a successful collaboration that lasted until Eric’s unexpected death on October 12, 2021 from complications due to a cardiac infection.
Eric loved his family; Iris, his devoted, loving wife of 15 years and 5 days; his pet dogs Baxter, Deacon, Cookie and cat Petey; Clemson football; Dan Marino and the Miami Dolphins. He was eternally grateful to Dr. John Elefteriades, whose cardiac surgical skills gave Eric a hugely successful, productive 15 years of life. Eric’s energy, knowledge and devotion to his family and a huge group of friends were extraordinary.
He will be dearly missed by his parents, his siblings Laura, Tina and Dr. Dieter Lindskog, their spouses, his nieces, nephews and by the many to whom he was simply “Uncle E”.
A Memorial Gathering was held on October 16, at Valerie Panciera’s Landmark Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, gifts in Eric’s memory should be made to: The Aortic Institute Yale School of Medicine, Office of Development, Box 7611 New Haven, CT 06519 or to the American Heart Association.
