After graduation from Purdue University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, Richard V. Ebershoff joined his father at Lafayette Tent and Awning. The company specialized in commercial and residential awnings, and supplies tents to various functions in over thirty states. They were one of the suppliers of tents for the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. They put together tents in various sizes from 12' X 12' to 100' X over 400'. Dick has been active in many organizations including the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Business Center, a Life member of the Elks, original member of the Purdue Downtown Gridiron Club, served as President of IIK (Regional Association of Canvas Manufacturers), and the John Purdue Club. He is an honorary member of the Reamers, the Gimlet Club and the P Men. He and President Hovde were the first two recipients of the coveted Diamond P presented by the John Purdue Club. He was honored at a banquet in 1969 by Purdue University and the Lafayette community for his dedication and service. His business adventure and devotion to sports was instrumental in his being on of the founders of the Indiana Pacers.
Dick has been instrumental in providing summer jobs for hundreds of young people, while they were students at Purdue University and local high schools. There are now four generations of Ebershoffs working at Lafayette Tent and Awning to carry on the work ethics and pride instilled by Dick.
