LINCOLN – Eric C. Daub, M.D., 37, died Tuesday, April 6, 2004, in Lincoln. He was born on Feb. 19, 1967, in Escondido, Calif., the son of Jean and Leland Daub. Dr. Daub earned a bachelor of arts in biology at the University of California, in Santa Cruz, Calif., in 1990, where he met his wife, Elisabeth. After graduating from New York Medical College in Valhalla, N.Y., in 1995, Dr. Daub completed his internship and residency training at Central Washington Family Medicine in Yakima, Wash., in 1998. He served as a staff physician at Mt. Home Air Force Base in Idaho from 1998-2000 and also at Hanscom Air Force Base in Massachusetts through 2002, earning the rank of Major. Dr. Daub earned the distinction of Diplomat of the American Board of Family Practioners and was certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Advanced Live Support, Neonatal Advanced Life Support, and Advanced Trauma Life Support. From July 1, 2002, Dr. Daub served as the chief medical officer for Health Access Network, a federally funded community health center in Lincoln and was the vice president for the Penobscot Valley Hospital Medical Staff. He was actively involved and shared in the development of the primary care, outreach, mental health care, dental health care, and patient support services that now are accessible to all patients in the northern Penobscot County region. Though his absence leaves a great void at the health center, the important work he did to help build a strong foundation for the organization to assure health care to those most in need carries on. His areas of particular interest in his professional role were the development of a quality improvement program, disease management programs, and implementation of electronic medical records. Dr. Daub is survived by his wife, Elisabeth; his daughters, Emily, age 7, and Elyse, age 4; his parents, Jean and Leland Daub; and his three sisters, Karalee Newburg, Kris Winder, and Kimberly Karn. Though known to many as an “MD,” he is fondly remembered by his children as “My Daddy,” for this is what “MD” meant to them. Dr. Daub shared with his wife and daughters their newfound interest to develop their skills riding their horses. Their most recent accomplishment and cherished memory was for the four of them to ride together at one time. One of Dr. Daub’s favorite hobbies was gourmet cooking. He also spent time enjoying nature surrounding his home, kayaking, mountain biking and road biking. Dr. Daub is sadly missed by his family, friends, co-workers and patients. A public visitation is scheduled for 6-8 p.m. Saturday, April 10, at the Clay Funeral Home in Lincoln. Following a private family graveside service in the morning, a public memorial service is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Monday, April 12, at the Congregational Church on School Street in Lincoln, with the Rev. Carolyn Metzler officiating. Immediately following the service, friends and relatives are invited to share conversation and refreshments at the Waterfront in Lincoln.
