To the family of Dick Erickson, your father will be greatly

missed. He was a true assest to our Knights of Columbus

Council and exemplified what it means to be a Knight.

My Family’s prayers will be with you at this traumatic type

and know that he rests now with his head on the bosum of

Christ. God Bless, Bill Rearick
