Lyle Douglas Erickson, 73, of Hatton, ND passed away Friday, December 7, 2018 at Hatton Prairie Village in Hatton. A memorial service will be held Monday, December 10, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. at St. John Lutheran Church in Hatton.

Lyle was born August 1, 1945 in Northwood to Ernest and Grace (Pladson) Erickson. He attended Enger Township country school until 6th grade and then graduated from Hatton High School. On July 31, 1964, Lyle married Linda Pladson at Little Forks Lutheran Church, rural Hatton. In 1973, Lyle bought the Arneson farm. He farmed from 1974 until his retirement in 2008. Lyle served on the Newburg Township Board, St. John Church Council and contributed in many different capacities to the Hatton Community Center. He spent his lifetime doing what he loved most, farming. He was thankful to see one final harvest completed. We will miss his humor and laugh.

Lyle was most appreciative and specifically wanted to thank all his family and friends and the numerous visits they all made, and the many miles people traveled to help him enjoy his days since diagnosis. It meant the world to him to reflect on the many great memories of his life.

The family would like to extend a very special thank you to Pastor Bruce Vold and all the wonderful caregivers and staff from Red River Valley Hospice and the special Hatton Prairie Village.

Survivors include his wife, Linda; children: Todd (Lois) Erickson, Casselton, ND; Tom (Ann) Erickson, Hatton, ND; Tara (Paul) Molling, Onalaska, WI; Tiffany (Corey) Moen, Mayville, ND; grandchildren: Shawn (Alyx) and Alissa; Ashley and Bradley; Taylor and Tristan; Ali and Andrew; sister, Renae (Roger) Gjellstad, Stanley, ND; nieces Robin Thomas and Rhonda Peterson, and nephew, Ryan Gjellstad and many other special aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Preceding him in death were his parents.

Family memorials can be directed to Red River Valley Hospice and Hatton Prairie Village.
