Erickson passed away surrounded by family on January 19,2024. He is preceded in death by parents: Paul Beecroft, and father-in-law Hal Weed; his step- brother Todd Beecroft and grandparents Olga and Ruben Erickson, Virginia and Wallace Strom. He is survived by so many that loved him: His wife Colleen Weed Erickson; his mother Virginia Beecroft; his father George Erickson; his sister Beth (Bob) Doce and children Hallie, Justin and Elise; his daughter Bryanna (Seth) Norberg and children Soren and Maylin; his son Leif (Annie) Erickson; and his daughter Mari Erickson as well as many other nieces, nephews, in-laws and friends who loved him dearly.

Mike touched many lives in the Twin Cities communities where he worked as a paramedic for over 30 years, saving and serving others with care and compassion. He was also a golfer, hockey player world traveler, and fun-loving guy. Mike held season tickets to the Minnesota Vikings, Minnesota Wild and took all opportunities to go to see the Minnesota Twins and Gophers play. All Minnesota teams gained a superfan in Heaven the day Mike passed away.

A celebration of life will be held at the Omni Viking Lakes Hotel Norse Hall 2611 Nordic Way Eagan MN 55121 Feb 10. Visitation begins at 3, followed by 4pm service and then reception from 5-7. Hotel discounts available if planning on staying via family members. For the celebration, we ask that you dress in your favorite sports gear, professional teams, personal teams, or blue (Mike’s favorite color). The family respectfully requests no Packer Gear, sorry. In lieu of flowers the family would like you to support the Invisible Wounds Project[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”2671″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” onclick=”link_image”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”2670″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” onclick=”link_image”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”2669″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” onclick=”link_image”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”2668″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” onclick=”link_image”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
