Eric’s dad owned a construction company in Topeka for many years and through his dad’s example, and various “jobs” at his company, learned the value of hard work early on. As one of his last jobs before retiring, Eric’s dad was the contractor that remodeled the Jayhawk Motel into the main Silver Lake Bank branch in 1994, well before Eric began to work for the bank.
