Myron "Mike" Parsek Erkiletian
To the entire Erkiletian family, I am so sorry about the loss of Mike. He will always be in my heart and loved as though he was my family. My life is full of memories of Mike and all of you. To Stefanie, Michael, Alex, Mihran and Samuel, I love you all. Also my heart goes out to Margaret, Bea and Jackie (I have such fond memories of our times together). I wanted to be there in person but instead I am in spirit. Also, love to Josephine, Betty and of course Karen Wax, who is a big part of the family. Please give my love and prayers to everyone I and Kenny knew and loved. We will be able to give a small gift to Alliance for Chesapeake Bay, which is dear to us, in Mike's name. Our love always to you all and I love you Mike!
Love, Wendy & Kenny Trawick
My thoughts and prayers are with the extended Erkiletian family.
It was a privilege working at The Center Club for Mr. Erkiletian and his family. A good man, who worked out when he could and he made time to say hello to the staff. My heart and prayers are for Stefanie, Alex and Michael. He is at peace!
Mike and I met in 1964. We became close personal friends and business friends. Mike taught me about investing in real estate. Mike and I went hunting and skeet shooting together before he bought his farm on the eastern shore. He was my best friend. He was one of the most generous and finest people I know. I will sorely miss him.
During my service as Director of Commerce during Governor Robb's administration, I had no confidante who was wiser, more compassionate, more loyal or more brutally honest than Mike. He was a treasured friend and mentor. Virginia is a much better place today because of the work of this great man. His memory will live in the hearts of all who knew him and his accomplishments will benefit many generations to come.
