ERICKSON, Frederick Victor

April 21, 1965 – November 17, 2011

It is with deep sadness that we announce that our beloved Frederick has lost his battle cancer.

Frederick is survived by his loving partner Ken; his sister Laurel Anne (Dean); his nephew Cole; and Helen Borm who played a special part in his life as did many friends and extended family.

Frederick was predeceased by his parents Victor and Esther Erickson.

He was born in France in a military family and grew up in Winnipeg and Selkirk, Manitoba. Frederick later made his home in Calgary where he was extremely proud to be a member of Calgary’s EMS Paramedic Team.

We would like to thank his many friends and family, particularly the paramedics, who lovingly supported and cared for him throughout his illness. We would also like to thank the staff at Chinook Hospice for their wonderful care.

At Frederick’s request, there will be a Private Graveside Service held at a later date in Selkirk, Manitoba. Cremation has taken place. Condolences may be forwarded through If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Chinook Hospice, 1261 Glenmore Trail S.W., Calgary AB T2V 4Y8, Telephone: 403-258-0040 or to the charity of the donor’s choice.

    Laurel Anne
    We were so sorry to hear of Fred’s (or as we knew him, Freddie’s) passing. We have many fond memories of hanging out together at the house on Evenline.
    We were unaware that he was even ill. He was a great guy and I’m sure he’ll be missed by many.
    Bless you
    Sharlene Yarish (Sokolosky) and Sherene Smoluk (Sokolosky)

  6. To Freddie’s Partner and Family
    I grew up knowing Freddie as the life guard at Selkirk Park Pool. When I came to Selkirk as a child I spent a lot of time at his family home on Eveline, whether it was at a family function or just a visit. Later on in my life I also knew him as my jewelery guy at Peoples, he was the one who helped my husband and I pick out our wedding rings and made it as easy for us as possible. I have so many fond memories of Freddie and he will be missed by all who knew him.
    With our love and thoughts
    Tamara, Mark, Jaden, and Jordan.

  8. My sincere condolences to Freddie’s family and friends on the loss of such a vibrant young man. Over the last number off years, my family has had the pleasure of celebrating many special occassions with Freddie as he very quickly became a part of our family traditions. It will be very difficult for all of us to not see his smiling face at the Christmas dinner table going forward, but especially this holiday season. Freddie, we are missing you very much.
    Garth and kin
