Euclid was born in 1918 in Edmonton, Alberta and in 1923 the family moved to Washington, living in the Redmond & Carnation area. He was able to go through the 8th grade before he had to quit school because of the depression. He worked on the family farm in Arlington and also worked as a logger. In 1940 he married Loretta Recor of Kirkland and in 1950 they settled in the Redmond area. He worked for the Lake Washington School District Transportation Department until his retirement in 1977 and was the Director of Transportation from 1967 to 1977. He was a volunteer fire fighter in Redmond for many years. Euc loved sports and played baseball as a youth for town teams back in the 1930’s and 40’s. He was a tireless worker in support of youth activities. He took great pride in being one of ten people that helped start Redmond Little League in 1954. He also helped start the Redmond Babe Ruth League in 1955. Euc built the first “meals on wheels”, a trailer that was used as a concession stand to help raise money for the league. In 1964 he helped RBA build Hartman Park for Babe Ruth, Connie Mack and semi-pro age groups. The field is also home to the Redmond Mustangs baseball team. Euc also helped start the Redmond Little League basketball program in 1957. Euc was always a big supporter of Redmond High School sporting events and could be seen watching Redmond High football, boy’s and girl’s basketball, baseball, softball, or volleyball. He loved watching and supporting the kids and loved even more helping give them the opportunity to play and participate. Euc loved the outdoors. Whether it was hunting on Mt. Annie or the Chiwawa, fishing on Lake Pearrygin or at Pillar Point, or clam digging and crabbing on Whidbey Island, he loved being outdoors and with his family and friends.
