Sven Hermelin, In Memoriam (Jun 11, 2013)


Sven Hermelin
1965 - 2013

On June 3, 2013, Sven Hermelin tragically passed away at the young age of 47. Sven was a vital member of the Monte Vista Water District family for the past 4-1/2 years. Originally hired as a utility service worker in 2008, Sven was quickly promoted to utility crew leader in 2009.

A Claremont resident, Sven worked as a meter services representative for Yorba Linda Water District prior to joining the District. In all, Sven served the public for 24 years, providing the highest level of customer service and ensuring safe and dependable water deliveries to the public.

Sven's colleagues remember him as a wonderful person, a dedicated and committed father to his four children, and a friend to all who knew him. Sven loved spending time with his colleagues both on and off the clock, and would always look out for their best interest. His passing has left a significant void at the District. We join his family in mourning their loss as we honor his service to the community.
