Ron Erickson’s life to be celebrated Sunday

A celebration of the life of longtime Aspen resident Ron Erickson will be held from 3 to 6:30 p.m. Sunday at the Elks Lodge.

“We will gather to share some of our favorite stories, remember the wonderful father, husband, grandfather, brother, son, stepfather and friend who will be greatly missed,” said a statement from Erickson’s family.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that people consider making a memorial contribution to the Aspen Elks Lodge in recognition of the organization’s efforts.
