Eric Lindner '87's Book on Hospice Volunteer Experience Mentioned in Washington Post
From the Washington Post:
Eric Lindner, former top executive in his family-owned Colonial Parking, the biggest parking firm in the Washington market, has a book coming out this September called “Hospice Voices: Lessons for Living at the End of Life.”
The book documents his experience as a volunteer hospice worker.
“I’m doing this to get more people to volunteer,” said Lindner, 54, who walked off the street and into a tiny hospice in Warrenton one day in April 2009 out of curiosity.
“I do it because my patients are the most fascinating people I’ve ever met, and I’ve met a few,” said the Warrenton resident. He lives on a farm there with his wife, Ellen, who is a horse lover.
Lindner now splits his time between Virginia and a place in Kauai, Hawaii. He was chairman and chief executive of Colonial before he left the company to run a parking business in Poland. Between 1994 and December 2011, he held the contract at the Gdansk Lech Walesa Airport.
After commuting from Dulles International to Poland via Munich or Vienna, he sold the business to a Belgian buyer, and has been advising the new company for the past year.
