Bill was born December 31, 1933, son of Joseph and Esther (Nee: Morris) Erickson, and raised in Aitkin Minnesota. Bill graduated from Aitkin High School.

Bill moved to Minneapolis, MN soon after graduating from school, and worked at the University of Minnesota Hospitals. A few years later, Bill moved to Racine, WI, where he found employment with and eventually retired from J.I Case. Upon retirement, Bill moved to New Port Richie, Florida.

Bill loved to travel; he took many cruises. Bill also loved to fish and was an enthusiastic participant in dance lessons; he entered and won numerous dance contests. Bill was a devoted Episcopalian; a long-time member of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Racine where he joyously participated in the church choir.

Bill is survived by his sisters, Madelyn Pollock (nee Erickson) of Racine, and Lorraine Chimzar (nee Erickson) of Placentia, CA, many nieces, Susan M. (Doug) Thornberg of Manchester, N.H., Joan M.

The family would like to thank the healthcare team employed with the Trinity Regional Rehab facility and clinic for their care for “Uncle Bill”.
