We Remember


January 22, 1947 — September 30, 2022

At age 75, Larry Erickson passed away, while surrounded by family, on Friday, September 30, 2022.

Larry is survived by his loving wife and life partner of 22 years, Wendy Ash; his daughter Raelynn (Dan); daughter-in-law Jenny; and son Brent (Leigh); his grandchildren Alex, Keenan, Zack, Cody, and Megan; as well as his sister Diane; and nephews Jason and Grant.  He is also survived by his stepchildren Joel (Tanya), Tracy (Bryan)  and Brent (Seble); and step-grandchildren Garrett, Danica, Avery, Natalie, Danielle, Morgan, and Sydney.

Larry was born in Nanaimo, BC.  He grew up to love working and only retired at age 72! Larry was strong, a fighter, and very entertaining.  Our Viking will be dearly missed.

We would like to express our gratitude to the Kelowna General Hospital staff on 3 East, the ICU, and his surgeon for all they did to look after Larry.

A Celebration of Life to honour Larry will be held on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2022, at 1:30 PM, at LEGION BRANCH 256, 1630 E Wellington Rd, Nanaimo, BC.
