P&N Mourns the Loss of Eric Westra, Colleague and Friend

June 6, 2016

We are saddened by the death of Eric Westra, who was a part of the Prein&Newhof team for almost two years. Many saw it as an honor to know and work with Eric for the time that he was with P&N.  His faith, optimism, and courage, and that of his wife Chelsea, shone brightly during his battle with cancer.

Eric joined Prein&Newhof in 2014, and worked with our municipal engineering team. He was a valuable colleague and friend to P&N and to our clients. His technical abilities combined with his people skills helped him succeed in the vital, yet delicate task of communicating with countless members of the communities involved in our projects.

He will be remembered fondly and missed by the P&N team.

In memory of Eric and his affinity for "fun" socks, P&N employees donned their most fun socks for a theme Friday.
