Beloved husband, partner, father and grandfather, Oscar Donald Erickson passed gently on Thursday, December 6th, in his bed surrounded by loving family.
Writer, teacher, lover of nature and keen observer of the human condition, Don had a wonderful sense of humour, endless curiosity about the world and an irresistible dramatic flair. In conversation he’d often get a twinkle in his eye as his mischievous side burst forth, stimulating new ideas and challenging convention.
Don is greatly missed by his partner of many years, Jane Dunlop, his children Christopher Strachan Erickson (Solange Aquino Erickson), Oscar Geoffrey Erickson, and Emily Anne Erickson McCullum (David Ross McCullum), his grandchildren Benjamin Ross and Eliza Jane McCullum and Ana Paula Erickson, and of course by his many wonderful friends. He is pre-deceased by his parents, Oscar Ludwig and Myrtle Erickson, his brother Arthur Charles Erickson, and his wife Eleanor Anne Erickson (née Strachan).
Oscar’s Wake will be held on Saturday, December 29th. For more details, please contact us via Don’s website: oderickson.com/ode/contact/. Incidentally, on the website, you can read Don’s stories and plays and listen to him reading his poems.
You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence for the family.
Nos plus sincères sympathies à la famille et aux amis de Oscar Donald Erickson December 6th 2018..
