B. Kent Erickson

January 4, 1942 ~ January 11, 2018

 

Byron Kent Erickson returned to his loving Heavenly Father on January 11, 2018. He was born on January 4, 1942 in Preston, Idaho to Byron Parley Erickson and Iris Stephenson. Kent grew up in North Ogden, Utah.  He served in the Central Atlantic States Mission. He met Pamela Ford while attending Weber State College; they were married in the Logan LDS Temple on July 9, 1964. They have five children. 

He started his career at South Ogden Jr High where he spent 34 years as a science teacher and counselor. He was a dedicated scout master and helped numerous young men achieve the rank of Eagle Scout. He served in many church callings including Bishop of the Washington Terrace 8th Ward.   

His health declined rapidly over the past year as he suffered the effects of hydrocephalus.  Thanks to all of the doctors and nurses who cared for our Dad, especially the staff at Hidden Valley Assisted Living. 

He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Pam; children: Tracie (Kevin) Jackson, Michael (Jenny) Erickson, Nathan (Jennifer) Erickson, Matthew (Brandy) Erickson, and Nicholas (Sarah) Erickson; grandkids: Jilien, Jaden, Jessica, Kiersten, Lyndsey Myken, Kinsey, Mason, Gunner, Henley, Remy, McKay, Oakley, Grady, and Colby.  He is also survived by his siblings: Carla (Ken) Alder, Norine (Grant) Hogan, and David (Joan) Erickson.
