Don Erickson, 86, died September 14, 2020. Don was born in Des Moines, Iowa and grew up in Omaha, Nebraska. He attended Yale University and began his career with Procter & Gamble in Cincinnati, OH. After several transfers with P & G and a career that lasted 33 years, Don landed in Green Bay, a place he loved. He then worked 9 years at HiTech in Green Bay. Don enjoyed golf, tennis, computers, photography, friends and family.

Don is preceded in death by his wife, Joan Bliss Erickson, whom he was married to for 37 years. They had 2 children, Karen (& Tim) Johnson of Glen Ellyn, IL and Pete (& Christina) Erickson of Rossville, TN. He was most proud of his 5 grandsons: Evan & Kyle and Blake, Chase & Logan.

We will forever miss his kind spirit and guidance.

A graveside service is planned for September 25 at Fort Howard Cemetery.

Don was a good friend of my husband Art Lumb during their P&G days. They lived in the same house, and we socialized with Don & Joan before and after their and our marriages. They reconnected in the late '90's after Art retired, and I continued to hear from Don yearly during the holidays. And, yes, he was very proud of his children and "grandboys" as he called them. When I missed hearing from him this year, I learned of his passing a few months ago. Don was a good man, and I will treasure the many memories of good times so many years ago. My sympathies to Karen and Pete and their families.
