Hjalmer did work for Eckstein Marine is how I met him. He was always kind to me. He always had a smile on his face. God Bless

I can recall being a very young boy, probably in the late 1960s or very early 1970s, at Comus on St. Charles Avenue and Hjalmar put me up on his shoulders for the parade. He was always a good friend to my mother and father. He will be missed.

Great friend & Marine Surveyor

My Sincere condolences to the family. I always looked forward to working with Hjalmar over the years. I am going to miss my salty buddy.
