Sorry to hear of the family's loss, enjoyed knowing Erwin over the past 15 or so years.
Erwin was a fellow Charlie Company trooper. I was leaving country just as he was coming in. Two ships passing in the night. We first met last September in Pentwater, Michigan at a reunion of Charlie Company men. He stayed at our house and joined us for meals, recollections, and a wonderful Jeep ride on the Silver Lake Dunes. He reconnected with some of his old crew and I hope that was a healing moment for his soul. His passing saddens us all. I didn't know him well but as Henry Johnson said, he was a good man and left us all too soon. GarryOwen!
I am very saddened to hear of Erwin's passing. He was a very kind thoughtful man. I will miss his smile, fishing stories and his jokes. My thoughts are with his family and friends.
Erwin was a very caring person. His thoughtfulness toward my mother (his aunt Vanessa) was very much appreciated. His phone calls every few weeks to me also brightened my day. We shared an avid interest in our family's ancestry. He knew where all our relatives are. Erwin, You will definitely be missed. Your cousin,
Rest in peace, God will surely like your jokes.
I was saddened to learn of Erwin's passing. He was a wonderful neighbor, and he shared some wonderful stories with me about his love of the outdoors and his many fishing outings, his work history, and the friends he made at GM. He will be missed. Our prayers are with is family.
I considered Erwin to be a good friend from the General Motor's Tool Room. He contacted me occasionally to find out how I was doing after retirement which I always appreciated. He was a very good machinist and he put his heart and soul into his work. I will miss his one-liner jokes.
Erwin will really be missed. He was always fun when he came out to The Learning Center at the Willow Run Powertrain plant.
May The Lord bless his family with fond memories of his life!
