We are sad to announce the passing of Nelson Erickson.
He will be missed by his family – Wife, Mary (of 52 years); Son, Joseph (Melaney); Daughter, Deidre (Ryan); Grandchildren, Kyla, Kascha (Mike), Kelly, Jakob (Nyomi), Jaxyn, Jordynn, and Issac; Great-Grandchildren, Joel, Noah, and one on the way; Siblings, Donna, Conrad, Colleen (Ken), Shellie, and Cedric. Nelson also has many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Nelson worked for the city of Prince George from 1974 – 2007. He started out in digging services for new subdivisions and ended up repairing/maintaining fire hydrants by the end of his career. He met many good friends over the years working at the city.
Nelson had many hobbies in his life. He adored the local lakes and fished at them often. With his catches he would provide many meals of fresh or smoked trout to his family. He played soccer and baseball with Prince George teams in his younger years. He enjoyed watching his favourite teams play football, hockey, and soccer.
Nelson was known for his sense of humor and good nature. For example, He named his youngest brother Cedric, Turdfart. His friends from Dial-A-Bottle described him as happy and smiley during his many visits with them. When asked how he was feeling, he would often reply with “just ducky”. Because of this, he was rewarded the nicknames Smelly Nelly, Whitey, and Fluffy.
