Jon R. Erickson, age 73 of North Branch passed away on Tuesday, April 24, 2018 at Mercy Hospital in Coon Rapids.

Jon was born on May 16, 1944 in Minneapolis to parents Raymond and Marie (Houston) Erickson.  He attended Minneapolis schools and graduated from Centennial High School in 1963.  Jon worked as a precision sheet metal worker for 30 years at 3M.  He also had a patent while working at 3M.

Jon and Sharon own Sven’s BBQ in North Branch. The success of Sven’s BBQ was due to Jon’s hard work, dedication and spirit.

He married Sharon Simonson on April 10, 1965 at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Circle Pines, and God blessed this union with four children.

He was a very hard worker as he built two of his own homes and will be remembered as a lover of music.  He was willing to help anyone and will be remembered for his kind and gentle nature, his sense of humor but most of all for being a wonderful father, grandfather and great grandfather to his family.

Jon is survived by his wife of 53 years, Sharon; children, Beth Erickson (significant other Jay Johnson) of Rush City, Jim (Ann) Erickson of Lino Lakes, Anne (Troy) Ellis of North Branch and Dan (Laure) Erickson of Fridley; his brother Gary Erickson of White Bear Lake; his seven grandchildren, Jennifer and Jessica Zachrison, Sam and Alex Ellis, Jack Erickson, Violet and Scarlet Erickson as well as his three great grandchildren, Jayden and Jorden Cortez and Hunter Dybedahl.  

Jon is preceded in death by his parents, Raymond and Marie.
