IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich. - Randy W. Erickson Sr., 56, of Ironwood, passed away on March 26, 2019, at the Dickinson County Hospital in Iron Mountain.

He was born Aug. 21, 1962, to Floyd and Ruth (Wolf) Erickson in Bessemer.

Randy worked for the Gogebic County Road Commission, in forestry, and for Community Action. He was a backyard mechanic and a man of many talents. He had a heart of gold; and was a strong man who accomplished many things in his life, which was cut short due to health issues.

Randy was a devoted father, husband, and the best friend anyone could have known.

He is survived by his wife, Ruth Erickson; son, Randy Erickson Jr .; daughter, Jessica Erickson; several grandkids, Jonathan, Jayden, Zaire and Terezilya; brothers, Gary, Terry, Danny, Floyd, Wally, Eddie, Bobby and Louis; sisters, Sue, Christal and Mary Jane; and brothers- and sisters-in-law, Lilette Schwartz, Danny (Genny) Schwartz and Scott Schwartz. He will be missed by many.

He was preceded in death by sister-in-law, Marcia Schwartz; and brother-in-law, Percy Schwartz.

A memorial service will be held for Randy on Friday, April 5, at the Lighthouse Faith Center, 777 E. Ayer St., Ironwood, at 11 a.m. with Pastor Tom Rouse officiating. Visitation will take place from 10 a.m. until the time of the service. Lunch will be served following the service, and family and friends are welcome.
