Robert William Erickson

Born: 12/13/1930, Boston, Massachusetts
Death: 9/14/2014, Grand Junction, Colorado
Service: 09/20/2014, 10:00 am, Community Church

Robert William Erickson passed away on September 14th 2014 at St. Mary’s Hospital in Grand Junction, at the age of 83. He was born in Quincy, Massachusetts on December 13th 1930.

Robert “Bob” Erickson married Flora Macleod on October 18th, 1959 in Long Beach California, after they met through friends playing volleyball on the beach. Upon completing a Master’s degree from USC in mechanical engineering, he worked for Rockwell International Corporation in aerospace before he became the Power Resources Planner for the City of Anaheim, California. Bob was a long time resident of Moab, Utah after moving from Los Alamitos, California in 1993. He and Flora retired here after falling in love with the beauty of serenity of Moab.

Bob was an active member of his church, The Community Church of Moab, serving as head usher and trustee. Bob also gave his time to teach Sunday school to adults sharing his love of God and his passion of the scriptures. Bob was known to many in Moab for his kind demeanor, generous nature, and captivating story telling. He could often be seen golfing at the Moab golf course or square dancing with Flora and the Fallen Arches Square Dancing Club.

He is survived by his loving wife Flora Macleod Erickson after 55 years of marriage and their two daughters Nancy Jean Erickson and Anne Clare Erickson and son-in-law Paul Thomas Frank; and sister Carolyn Julian. He was preceded in death by his parents Arthur and Anna Erickson and his brother Warren Erickson.

A memorial service will be held to honor Bob Erickson on Saturday September 20th, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. at The Community Church of Moab, 544 Mi Vida. In lieu of flowers, we request that donations be made to the Youth Garden Project, Moab Utah.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
