Chi Psi Mourns the Loss of a Young Brother

Eric Joshua Marinoff, Upsilon Delta ’11 died unexpectedly on Wednesday, February 25. A native of Southampton, PA, Eric was a member of the Wake Forest band and served as Recruitment Chairman for Upsilon Delta. His energy and love for Chi Psi helped the Alpha to pledge 15 men this spring.

Eric is the son of Norman and Janet Marinoff, brother of Jessica Marinoff, and grandson of Edwin and Eleanor Liss. He is also survived by many loving family and friends. A number of Brothers from Wake Forest attended the memorial service for Eric on Friday, February 27. They were joined by Executive Council Member, Lathrop Nelson, Omicron Delta ’97. Brother Nelson shared the following from the service: "After hearing his sister, mother and rabbi speak about him, there is no doubt that Eric was an outstanding young man. He was a musician, a sports fan, a debater, a scholar, and a leader among his peers. He was most definitely a shining Chi Psi. His sister recounted that her little brother went down to Wake and came back a gentleman. Both his mother and sister told of his love of purple and gold. Eric's impact on the Fraternity and the impact of the Fraternity on him was clear, particularly as I saw a giant bus full of Brothers who traveled through the night to attend the service.”

When told about Eric’s death, Chi Psi #7, Dan Ahlberg, Nu ’67, said "It is clear we have lost a talented young man who has contributed greatly to our Fraternity. He will be missed by the entire Chi Psi family.”

In lieu of flowers contributions in Eric's memory may be made to Cong. Beth El Building Fund, 375 Stony Hill Rd, Yardley, PA 19067.
