Erickson, Daniel Curtis "Stein" Age 71 of Maple Grove. Beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend, passed away suddenly and peacefully in his sleep on January 21, 2013. Dan was preceded in death by his parents, Curtis and Adair; his brother, David; his sister-in-law, Linda; and Sandra's parents, Stanley and Lilly Wesley. Survived by his loving wife of 46 years, Sandra; children, Todd (Leah), Andrea Walters, Chad (Libby), Heidi Segedy (Matt), and Ben (Grace); and grandchildren, McKinley, Carly, Sasha, Lily, Anna, Sarah, Julia, Jack, Nora, Noah, Bergen, Lena, and baby boy on the way. Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Dan was a member of the class of 1960 from Anoka High School, and was employed by Minneapolis Public Schools for over 25 years. One of Dan's favorite past times was riding his bike on the local trails, but first and foremost in Dan's heart was his family. He loved nothing more than to run around town with wife Sandra visiting his children and grandchildren. Funeral service at LORD OF LIFE LUTHERAN CHURCH (7401 County Rd. 101, Maple Grove) Friday at 3 PM with visitation beginning at 1:30 PM. Memorials preferred to the family. As Stein would say, "it's cold outside, so please dress appropriately." www.kozlakradulovich.com "A Celebration of Life" 763-416-0016
