Mark grew up in Bloomington and was the oldest of 8 siblings, thus being nicknamed, “The President.” Preceding Mark into heaven: his parents, Richie and Lorraine, along with his brother, Todd Ericksen.

Mark didn’t just watch life go by, he participated in it. He rode horses and Harley’s, raced cars, paddled canoes and drove an 18-wheeler. Mark loved his country and his dogs and was faithful to family. He was an army veteran and patriot, serving in Bamburg, Germany. Mark was a proud father and grandfather, a good son, brother, friend, and uncle; we will miss him greatly and forever long to hear his laugh again.
