Eric, and his bride of 27 years were dairy farmers for 15 years before getting into banking in 1999. They have three wonderful daughters, two are grown and married, and the youngest is in college. The oldest is a lender, the middle one works as a county conservation technician, and the youngest is looking to be an agronomist or horticulturist. Eric has been an active member of the Westby community and plans to be just as active in the Marshfield area. He has been on the Westby-Christiania Fire department for 15 years, and the Vernon County Hazardous Materials Response Team for 13 years.
