One wack packer in The Howard Stern Show, Eric the Actor Lynch, has just passed away at 39 years of age.
Eric Lynch who was one of the wack packers on The Howard Stern Show has died at the age of 39. His manager reported that he recently suffered a heart attack and was taken to the nearest hospital where he gave up the ghost due to organ failure.
It is a sad fact indeed. Our condolences go out to his family members. He departed for the next world on Saturday. And he had his near and dear ones with him when he slowly drifted into the sleep from which no one awakens.
His manager was right there by his side at the time of his death too. He had appeared on The Howard Stern Show the previous week and had made the announcement that his parents would be taking over from his manager.
Eric was called “The Midget” due to his diminutive size. He soon gained a certain degree of notoriety on the show for shouting and screaming at Howard (all in good humor of course).
Eric pretty quickly got promoted to Wack Pack status on the platform. Lynch was 3 feet tall and used a mechanized automatic wheelchair as a means of transportation.
He furthermore had roles in other television shows as well such as “Fringe”, “In Plain Sight” and “American Dreams”. Here was a man who despite his severe handicap of size as well as his wheelchair-bound existence could roll the dice with the best of the best.
He was a permanent fixture on The Howard Stern Show and had solid entertainment value as a critic and hollering agent provocateur. It just goes to show you that in the developed countries, the handicapped and physically challenged have a high status and can achieve whatsoever they /4/want to in life.
There are indeed no barriers to opportunity in the United States and anyone…even a kid without a cent can become President one day when he is an adult. That is the beauty and magic of democracy and free enterprise. It is a wonderful style of government that has its advantages indeed.
