January 25, 1942 - May 03, 2014


Resident of Blaine, WA.

Erhard “Ed” Squire of Birch Bay went to be with his Lord and Savior on May 3, after losing his battle with a lung condition at St. Joseph’s Hospice Hospital. He was seventy two years old. He is survived by Helen, his wife of thirty four years; son Gary, daughter Lisa and husband Bob, grand-daughters Ashley and Amanda, great-grandson Gavin, son Jerry, daughter Cindy, daughter Melinda, daughter Ferni, brothers in Germany, Manfred, Harald, and Alwin.

Ed was born in Biebesheim, Germany to Elisabeth Kraft (deceased) and Karl Hugo Rothermel (deceased) on January 25, 1942. Ed came to the USA at age 15 and completed his schooling in the Seattle area. He was a veteran of the Vietnam War. The love of Ed’s life was his family and his dedication to helping children. Ed and Helen fostered over 100 children over a span of 10 years. He will always be remembered as a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. His longtime hobbies included travel, crab fishing, touring in his motor-home and cooking. Ed will be sadly missed by his family and friends.

    Helen and family at this time there are no words except I’m so sorry for your loss. Jim & Ed can sit up there and talk about when they worked together and have a beer or 2

  2. Dear Helen and family, Erhard will live on in the hearts of those who loved him. He is not gone, he has only changed the room. I think about you Helen and Erhard. Love, Nadine
    Death is nothing at all: I slid just over in the next room. I am I and you are you. Why should I be out of mind, just because I am out of sight? Whatever we were to each other also, we are even now. Play, smile, think of me. Life means all that even now, What it also means otherwise. It has not changed, I’m waiting for you, somewhere very close to you. All is well.
