Howard Hjerpe began his career in the construction business as a young boy working with his father. By age 40 he owned his own construction company. Howard was a loving husband, father of 3 sons and grandfather of 7. He was active in the life of his church and in a civic club. Family, travel and relaxing at their lake home filled his leisure time. A heart attack brought his life to an abrupt end at the age of 64. He was a donor of cornea, bone, and tissue.
