Harvey Gunnar Erickson
My Grandfather was my hero. When most boys had G.I. Joe to look up to I had a true living example. Harvey Gunnar Erickson was born in Sweden and moved over to the states with his family when he was a boy. He fought for our country in WWII as a B-24 gunner accomplishing over 40 missions. If that was not manly enough he spent the rest of his life working with his hands creating some of the most beautiful works of art and furniture out of wood. He was a true craftsman and did not know how to do anything except for at it’s highest quality.
It is sad to see him go… But at almost 92 years old he lived an amazing life and it is so relieving to see him go peacefully and surrounded by family and loved ones.
Love you grandpa.
