St. John Source, Sept. 26, 2001 - Eric Christian, known by residents and visitors as "Mr. Eric," died Tuesday. He was 71.

Christian was well-known as the onetime proprietor of Eric's Hilltop Restaurant, located in Cruz Bay at what is now the Legislature Building. The restaurant operated in the 1960s and early 1970s.

"Conch is what people came for," St. John resident Rosa Samuel recalled. In recent years, Christian cooked up his specialties for West Indian Night at the Inn at Tamarind Court.

"I'll always remember him smiling out the kitchen window," owner Betty Berlin said. She said that his heart was as big as his smile.

Christian's brother, Lambert Christian, said he was a "very nice fellow" who always tried to help everybody.

He is survived by his children Eric Jr., Ellis, Roane, Alvis Sr. and Joan Christian; his brothers Lambert, Randolph and John Christian; and his sisters Delphine Boynes, Ina Christian Sullivan, Charlotte Harley and Louisa Encarnacion.

Information on services was not immediately available. Arrangements are by Creque's Funeral Home.
