They Called Him The Lawnmower Man

If you’ve ever walked the streets of Ithaca, there’s a good chance you’ve met Eric Lovett, a happy-go-lucky guy wearing a stylish hat, often seen pulling a lawnmower behind his bicycle.

Sadly, Ithaca lost Eric on November 27th at the age of 63.

This episode is a tribute to him: a musical soul, an advocate of humor, and a fixture in the Ithaca community.

Thank you, Eric, we are lucky to have known you.
