He was born on March 27, 1945, in Boston, Mass., the son of L. Henry Goulston and Sylvia Wexler Goulston. After attending local schools in Sharon, Mass., he attended the University of Massachusetts at Lowell, graduating in 1968 with a degree in nuclear engineering.
Following graduation, he took employment as a nuclear engineer at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, in Kittery, Maine, where he occupied successively more responsible positions, becoming first a nuclear shift test engineer and later a nuclear chief test engineer.
Later in his career, he became an acknowledged fluid systems expert. Unusual for an engineer, he became a union steward, interceding with management on difficult personnel issues on behalf of other employees. He retired in 2003, only when his illness made it impossible to continue at work. While there, he was responsible for the coordination and successful completion of the Shipyard Worker’s Memorial Park, as memorial to all shipyard employees.
During the 1980s and early ’90s, he also owned and operated a successful jewelry wholesale and retail business.
He was keenly interested in both skiing and bicycling. He was a leading member of the Seacoast Ski Club, organizing local and international ski trips. He was also a longtime volunteer with the Maine Handicapped Skiing organization, bringing the joy of outdoor adventure to those who otherwise would have been unable to participate.
He was a member of the Granite State Wheelmen, a statewide bicycle club, participating in many of their rides, as well as organizing and leading bicycle rides of his own. He was a 15-year veteran of the Trek Across Maine, a grueling three-day bicycle fund-raising ride on behalf of the American Lung Association. He also led a stationary bicycle "spinning" class.
His pride and joy was his family. He is survived by his father, L. Henry Goulston, of Stoughton, Mass.; his stepmother, Evelyn Goulston; one brother, Paul Goulston, of Amherst, Mass.; his son, Dr. Michael Goulston, of New York City; and his daughter, Jennifer Goulston, an eighth-grade teacher in Baltimore, Md.. He is also survived by his longtime companion and loving wife, Jane S. Greenslit; and many loving friends and relatives.
Eric was a 30-year member of Temple Israel of Portsmouth, a past vice president and president of the Brotherhood.
Services were held at the Temple on Wednesday, April 14 at 1 p.m., with Rabbi David Mark officiating.
Words of remembrance were given by Scott Goetz, Carl Gurtman and Neil Sheehan. In attendance were representatives from Sunday River; the Maine Handicapped Skiing Program; and Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.
Burial immediately followed in the Temple Israel Cemetery, with committal services by Rabbi Mark. Bearers were Paul Goulston, Paul Letroux, Scott Goetz, Neil Sheehan, Carl Gurtman and Tod Goulston.
