Paul Erickson Obituary

Paul G. Erickson, age 74, of Columbia Heights, Minesota, passed away peacefully on September 24, 2023. He was born on May 4, 1949 in Cloquet, Minnesota to Kenneth and Marion Erickson.

He enjoyed playing the accordion, collecting and reading classic literature, listening to Christian hymns and he loved his pet cockatiel Pinky Mary. He will be remembered for his independent spirit, puns, jokes and singing.

Paul is survived by his sister Lenore (Randy) Siemsen; nephews Wayne (Tiffany) and Matthew;  and great nieces Zoey and Autumn.

He was preceded in death by parents Marion and Kenneth and the love of his life, his wife Janet, who passed away a day after their 40th wedding anniversary. Theirs was a special and unique love and his heart was broken when she died. Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. 

A special thank you to Pastor Bob and the caring staff at CrestView Communities.  A private family gathering will be held at a later date.
