North St. Paul says goodbye to a local icon


In 1995 Ellsworth Erickson revisited photographs taken in Europe during World War II. While serving his country, Erickson developed film to be viewed in 3D. This early version of 3D required photos to be taken from slightly different vantage points. Once developed, the photos were viewed through plastic glasses. (file photo)
Ellsworth Erickson, 92, was World War II vet, popular teacher, civic leader 

North St. Paul lost one of its few remaining World War II veterans on March 3, 2016, when Ellsworth Erickson succumbed to pancreatic cancer.

He will be remembered by the public as a family man, a veteran, a teacher, an artist and a friend. His family members said they will remember him for his loyalty, honesty and optimism that permeated all aspects of his life.

“It was hard because even though he was 92, he acted young; he thought young,” said his daughter Sheryl Erickson in an interview last week.
