Brent Ericson

June 16, 1945 — September 24, 2022

Brent G Ericson, our beloved father and brother, passed away on Saturday, September 24, 2022 at Mt Olympus Rehabilitation Center in Salt Lake City, UT, from natural causes.
Born June 16th, 1945 to Marshall Graham Ericson Jr and Wanda Pearl (Nielson) Ericson in Tempe, Arizona.  Brent married Carolyn Jean Davies on June 6th, 1972 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.

Carolyn passed away September 6, 1976 from Breast Cancer.  Brent married Janet (Mantle) Harris; later divorced; Janet passed away November 11, 2018.
Brent joined the US Army in 1968 and served in Vietnam, where he received several medals for his service, including the Bronze Star and the Army Commendation Medal.
Brent was an avid genealogist, geologist, and science fiction film enthusiast.  Anyone who knows Brent knows he was "Quite a Character" and gave his 4 little sisters a teasing or two until the very end, but the highlight of Brent's life was the adoption of his son John Marshall Ericson.
Brent will be greatly missed by his surviving family: son John Marshall (Carma) Ericson, his grandchildren Sunshine, Shelby (Teaza), and Gabe; his sisters Wanda (John) Southerland, Susan Fors, Jackie (Don) Cannon, Kim (Kent) Thomas; and multiple nieces and nephews.  Preceded in death by his parents.
