Terrance “Terry” Erickson, also known as the “Trader”, age 74, a longtime resident of Webster passed away on Saturday, April 18, 2020 surrounded by those he loved.

Terry was born in Grantsburg on April 16, 1946 to parents, Harvey and Pearl Erickson.

Terry graduated from Grantsburg High School in 1964. He was an entrepreneur, always looking for another way to make a buck. His first business venture was owner of the DX station in Grantsburg. In the mid-70s, Terry owned and operated Oak Grove Supper Club, where his love of entertaining flourished. Terry enjoyed antiques, buying and selling many over the years. Later, Terry entered into the car business. As a partner at Larsen Chevrolet in Webster, he made many weekly trips to Colorado to buy cars at auctions. The highlight of his later years was spent working with his son, Ken at Affordable Auto Sales, between Siren and Webster and being a landlord of their rental properties.

He was a people person, who loved to talk and spend time with family and friends. His philosophy was any good meal and conversation was complimented with a good vodka.

Terry was preceded in death by his son, Matthew; parents, Harvey and Pearl; and sister, Marvel.

He will be forever missed by his son, Kenneth (Maria) Erickson; grandson, Ashton; loving companion, Deb Mitchell and brother, Darwin (Diane) Erickson; along with other relatives and a host of friends that will forever remember his smile and laugh.

A private family service will be held at the Lutheran/Chelmo Cemetery in Meenon Township.

Arrangements were entrusted to Swedberg-Taylor Funeral Home, Webster. Online condolences can be made at www.
