Since then, granddaughter Cecilia Barrentine was able to provide us a photo and some background information on her grandfather. Eric Dahlstrom, a rancher by trade, was on the board of trustees for the Elm Grove School and for the Buda School after the campuses con- solidated. He also coached football and drove the bus, according to his granddaughter. Eric and his wife Dodie were active supporters of the school district and all its activities. They were also active members of the Buda Methodist Church where Eric was a steward for many years. The property that Dahlstrom Middle School sits on was donated by Dahlstrom's son, developer Jack Dahlstrom Sr. in 1985 in honor of his father. Above, Eric Dahlstrom poses with his dog Swop after a hunting excursion.
