Donzel Loren Erikson
Jun 6, 1924 – Nov 30, 2017
Born in Arnold, Nebraska to Eva Henry Erikson and Edwin Erikson. Don worked for Mobil Oil in the whole sale gas industry in Wyoming and worked for The Gates Rubber Company as a salesman for more than twenty years. He flunked Retirement 101 after five days and then went to work for The John Day Company until his full retirement in 1991.
Don married Darline Hollenbeck and was with her for 53 years until her death in 2000. Don was an avid reader and story teller. He enjoyed spirited conversation and fine dining until the very end. He was involved in All Saints Episcopal Church in many different roles and anyone who knew him, never had to guess where he stood on any issue.
Don is survived by his godchildren: Sara (Lauer) Zimbelman, William T. Lauer, David W. Lauer, and Mark Young and their families. He leaves behind a legacy of wit and wisdom that will be remembered by those closest to him.
MEMORIAL SERVICE will be held on Saturday, December 9th at 3:00 p.m. at All Saints Episcopal Church, 9302 Blondo, Omaha, NE. Memorials are suggested to All Saints Episcopal Church.
