Eric Owens

The Cape Homeowners Association and the residents of The Cape lost a good friend last week.  Eric Owens, a 15 year CHOA employee passed away at his residence in Carolina Beach on Sunday, January 13th.  Eric is survived by his brother Bill Owens, of Wilmington, and mother Gisela Owens, of Colorado Springs, CO. 

Eric's official title was Grounds Maintenance Technician, but the duties and responsibilities that he assumed went far beyond that.  Those that knew and worked with him would likely describe him as the Ultimate Jack-of-all-Trades or Super Handyman.  He mowed our lots, cleaned our storm drains, planted and maintained our common areas, repaired our equipment, and even assumed the mantle of chief doggy station duties when those sites were installed.  If you didn't personally meet or know Eric, you surely saw him repeatedly throughout the community on a daily basis.  No matter the weather or how he felt, he nodded, waved and smiled at whoever he encountered while on the job.

Eric wished to be cremated and his brother Bill will personally accompany the remains to Colorado.

The Cape Homeowners Association is planning a memorial planting acknowledging and honoring Eric's contributions to our community. 

Residents and friends wishing to send a personal note of condolences can do so to his mother Gisela Owens at 152 Kilgore St. Colorado Springs, CO 80911-2232 or his brother Bill Owens at 2020 Fall Dr., Apt. F, Wilmington, NC 28401.
