ERICKSON, RICHARD With his wife, daughter, son-in-law and brother by his side, Richard (Rick) slipped his earthly bounds to join his mother, father and eldest brother Thursday, August 6th 2015 at the age of 64. Born in Chatham September 1st, 1950 to the forever missed Fred and Eileen (Hale) Erickson, Rick spent his younger years with his two brothers William (Bill, deceased in 2001) and Eric and many childhood friends in the Northside of Chatham on Bedford Street. He is survived by his eternally beloved wife Linda (Feltz) Erickson, his daughter April (Erickson) Colby, his son Richard Jr. Erickson, his son-in-law Joe Colby and is fondly remembered and will always be missed by his only grandson Joey Colby.
