Sept. 22, 1928 – April 3, 2017

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of EDWARD ERICKSON on Monday, April 3, 2017 at the age of 88 years.

Ed lived in the Nobleford area his full life, farming and ranching for over 50 years with his brothers and sons. Ed was a great husband, father, grand-father, uncle, neighbor and friend to many. He was well known for his generosity, kindness and willingness to help others. He would always assist his neighbors/friends and put their needs above his own without ever having to be asked. After a hard year of work, he enjoyed nothing better than taking his family to his favorite place at Fairmont Hot Springs.

Ed is survived by Anne, his loving wife of 64 years. He was also a loving father to his 5 children, Duane, Denise (Mark) Hofman, Dale, Darcie (Shelly), Darlene (Shaun) Harrison. His gentleness & memory will be cherished forever by his 12 grandchildren, Micah, Lauren, Cody, Cole, Scott, Tara, Amber, Darcy, Russell, Sarah (Brenton), Shelby & Spencer.

Ed was predeceased by his brothers, Clarence and Ernest & Sister Ellen Barnaby.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the NOBLEFORD COMMUNITY COMPLEX, 122 Kipp Street, Nobleford, AB, on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at 2:00 P.M. with Pastor Rodger Halvorsen officiating.

A special thank you to the doctors and nurses on 3C for the excellent care that Dad received for the month that he was in the Chinook Regional Hospital.
