August 17, 1946 - February 09, 2018


Steve Erickson – loving husband, father, brother, papa, and friend to many – passed away February 9, 2018 at the age of seventy-one. Steve was born on August 17, 1946 to Bob & Evelyn Erickson in Bellingham, WA. He graduated from Bellingham High School in 1964 and married Donna Murray on August 9, 1969. For 48 years he was the owner of K&E Moving & Storage.

Steve is preceded in death by his parents and brother Rick Erickson. He is survived by his wife Donna, son Collin (Amy) Erickson, daughter Kim (Terry) Caetano, grandkids Alana & Logan Erickson, Reece & Fredy Caetano, sister Linda (Keith) Ostrander, and nephew Ben Ostrander.

Steve was a big man with a kind heart. His family and friends were the things he cherished the most in life. He was an avid Starbucks coffee drinker, UW Husky fan, member of the Bellingham Central Lions Club, Bellingham Executive Club, and past member of the Army National Guard. His favorite pastime was napping in his Lazyboy recliner while watching football through his eyelids. You could find him in the morning at Starbucks drinking coffee with his compadres, trying to solve the problems of the world without much success. He will always be remembered for his ability to make people laugh in every situation. When you left him, he would tell you, “Be good” instead of goodbye.

After retirement, Steve volunteered at the Lions Club Wheelchair Warehouse. Donations can be made to the Bellingham Central Lions Club – PO Box 602 Bellingham, WA 98227.

An open house to celebrate Steve’s life will be held on Saturday, February 17, 2018 from 1:00-6:00pm at Fox Hall – 3985 Bennett Dr. Bellingham.

  1. How many times did Mayflower move the Kohl family from one “Michael Kohl house” to another? Who could ever say that moving is a fun event? Steve and his team always made it a fun day. My favorite was when steve did the estimate… We would laugh and laugh and laugh and have yet another wonderful time. I loved seeing Steve get into retirement and always enjoyed talking with Donna. Having just gone through something similar with the death of my own beloved husband Mike, I’m filled with the deepest feelings for Donna and family. I’m so so sorry we have lost this adorable sweet man.

  2. Donna and family,Gage and I send our heartfelt sympathy and want you to know how much we are thinking of you in this time of loss. What a classmate & what a guy.
    Hugs to all,

    Steve was a big presence in my life as a barista for 8 years. His kindness went beyond hello. If there was help needed, he was there with advice, a smile, encouragement or his moving van. My thoughts are with you Donna.

  4. Working with Steve at the Lion’s Club wheel chair warehouse, I realized what a special guy he was. So sorry to hear of his passing, and wished I could have know him longer than I did. He was so proud of his 2 kids.

  5. Donna: We really only met Steve few times but wanted you toknow we are thinking of you in this sad time..
    Sincerely, Monty & Bonnie Westford
