Eric’s first love is on-the-ground restoration work. He has been involved in, I believe just about every restoration project we’ve done, as a volunteer. A devoted father of two really wonderful children, Carl & Linnea, Eric often brings his kids to the events. Both father and children have racked up huge volunteer hours and garnered just about every volunteer reward we offer.
Eric, thank you for years of service to the Hylebos, and your friendship, as well as putting up with me all those times you were President!

Thank you for being on the board!
This fuzzy little beast has moved on to the next phase of existence. Where will we get our cardboard shredded now that he’s gone?
