TJ worked for his father's excavation company for many years, Bill Erickson Heavy Construction. He was very skilled at excavation and often helped friends and family with those little odd jobs. He never hesitated to lend a helping hand.
His favorite hobbies were fishing, telling stories in a way that would have you rolling on the floor with laughter, gardening and off road motorcycle riding. TJ got his Private Pilot's License in 2009, one of his favorite accomplishments. He was a member of the Oregon Pilot's Association. He loved animals and had an outgoing passion for life. TJ made friends everywhere he went and he will be missed by many.
