Bruce C. Erickson of North Chelmsford
Bruce C. Erickson, 71, of N. Chelmsford, died surrounded by his loving family on Thursday, January 25, 2018 at his home. He was married to Patricia L. Erickson (Ignatowich) with whom he would have celebrated their fifty-second wedding anniversary on October 8, 2018.
Born in Lowell, he was the son of the late Carl and Lillian Erickson. He graduated from Chelmsford High School with the class of 1964. He proudly served with the U.S. Navy as a Seabee during the Vietnam War. Before retiring from U.S. Filter as a maintenance worker in 2009, Bruce worked as an oil burner technician. He was a member of both the VFW Vinal Post 313 in N. Chelmsford and the Road Rebel Classic Car Club. He enjoyed spending time with his family, cruising around in his pick-up truck, having coffee with his buddies, and woodworking. He was also an avid New England sports fan. He was a master of jokes and pranks; his sense of humor will be missed by all. He was a proud, lifelong resident of N. Chelmsford.
Besides his wife, Bruce is survived by his son, Andrew and his wife, Amy Erickson (Sullivan) of Tewksbury, and by his daughters, Tina and her husband, Michael Clement of N. Chelmsford, Susan and her husband, Scott Zwicker of Leominster, and Sharon and her husband, Erik Hall of Pelham, NH. He is also survived by his grandchildren, William and Emily Erickson, Ryan and Stephen Clement, Sydney Zwicker, Ashley and Jessica "Marty" Hall, several nieces and nephews, and 5 grand-pups.
