July 23, 1962-June 26, 2014
The family of Richard (Rick) Erickson sadly announce his sudden death. He passed away at his home in Campbell River at the age of 51.
Richard is survived by his two daughters Genna and Fawn. His parents Phil (Gloria) Erickson and Nancy (John) Wersching, sister Mary (Derek), brothers Jim (Janet) and Chris, as well as many nieces and nephews.
Rick had a wonderful artistic flair for working with wood/driftwood. He loved the water and fishing.
A poem from his uncle says it all:
The man o wood straight grain,
twisted more better, the smell,
the feel, the warmth.
Cut, chisel, sand – inside and out,
the spirit of the wood; a love affair.
A celebration of his life was held Thursday, July 3, 2pm at the Eagles Hall, 1999 14th Street Campbell River.
