Over the years, he also built a thriving tax business by word of mouth. He provided honest and thorough work to his clients with a good natured sense of humor that far exceeded the subject matter. Al’s life long love of music could be found in many aspects of his life. He loved piano as a child, trumpet as a teen, and choir as an adult. He never tired of listening to barbershop quartets, local musical theater, the Singing Christmas Tree, Sound of Music re-runs, or his granddaughter Lauren playing the clarinet. Al was the epitome of a numbers guy who loved facts & figures, Sudoku, and yes even taxes. For many years he carried a pencil behind his ear on the off chance that a number would require his immediate attention. Al loved to travel. His family has fond memories of camping for weeks every summer all around the northwest. Picking cherries in Yakima, crabbing at Fort Flagler, and soaking up Harrison Hot Springs were among his favorites. He also enjoyed traveling to Europe with his sons on their “trip of a lifetime”. Al enjoyed researching, writing about, and collecting tokens. He enjoyed the token community and all of the relationships he built over the years with that terrific group of guys. Al enjoyed playing pool and the camaraderie of several local league teams. He also loved playing Texas Hold’em whether on-line, at the casino, or with his grandson Brian. He was very fond of Fort Steilacoom Park and spent 40 years running, walking, and exploring all over it. Family was very important to Al. He loved family 4th of July, Christmas, and spending time with his sons and grandchildren. Al was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his children Alden Erickson III of Puyallup and Doug Erickson (Penny Hopkins) of Lakewood and his beloved grandchildren Lauren and Brian Erickson of Pullman.
