April 12, 1948 – March 6, 2019
Eric was the Operations Manager here at El Rancho de las Golondrinas from 1990–1998. He loved animals and took great pride in caring for the Museum’s sheep, goats, burros, and at that time horses. Eric had a hand in so many projects here on the Museum property that we could never dream of writing them all down. He will be greatly missed, but his legacy will live on around every corner of Las Golondrinas.
Eric was preceded in death by his parents, Y.A. and Leonora Curtin Paloheimo, and survived by his brother, George, and sisters Nina and Eva, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
