Ethen “Swede” Ekberg Memorial
Thursday September 1, 2022
Northern New Mexico Sporting Club founding member Ethen “Swede” Ekberg passed away peacefully at his home on August 23, 2022 after a 3 year standoff with that mortal foe cancer.
A memorial in his honor will be next Thursday September 1, 2022 from 10am-Noon
at the NRGSC, 42 East Arroyo Alamo, La Puebla, 87567
The event will be held in the parking lot by the archery range. It is an outdoor casual affair, so please bring your own chair for seating and perhaps a hat. There will be remembrances from Swede’s family and close friends along with a 21 “Shotgun” salute to close things out.
The range will be closed for the entire morning with the front gate locked open to allow easy access for non-members. Since the lower parking lot will be closed, please plan on parking in the upper lot next to the rifle range.
In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Espanola Humane Society in his honor would be appreciated. www.espanolahumane.org
