Art Ermeloff is a giver. Whether it’s his time, his skills, or simply his companionship, he has always been there for the people in his life.
He was born in Hydaburg, a town in the southern part of the Alaskan panhandle. He was the second of eight children. His parents are Alaskan Natives; his mother a member of the Haida tribe, for which Hydaburg got its name, and his father was an Aleut. While his father was in Vietnam, his parents separated. “My dad came back, and he brought all of us kids down to San Diego to live with him,” Ermeloff explains.
