May 12, 1948 - July 8, 2020
With sadness, family and friends of Bryce Erickson announce his passing on July 8, 2020. In recent years, Bryce had struggled with a variety of health issues.
Bryce was born in North Battleford to Roland (John) and Vivian (Alexander) Erickson on May 12th, 1948. At an early age, he moved to Saskatoon where the family added another son Lester. Bryce attended Queen Elizabeth School and later Aden Bowman Collegiate. He graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a degree in Art/History. Bryce worked in the Library at The University of Saskatchewan in the mid 70’s. In later years he worked at the University of Saskatchewan for Dr. William Sarjeant in the Geology Department as well as communications positions at the Saskatchewan Research Council, SIAST, and the College of Medicine at the University. In 1979 Bryce married Mary Dykes a fellow library employee. Bryce retired in 2006 to devote his time to painting and printmaking.
In 2011, Bryce relocated to Watrous where he found a wonderful, welcoming Art Community. Bryce was very happy there and made several good friends for which he was very grateful. As an artist he seemed to flourish in the community and despite health issues, continued with his artwork until his passing.
Bryce was a very talented pianist and a skilled woodworker creating many picture frames, easels, and desktops. He liked to cook traditional meals - his Ginger Apricot Pecan Fruitcake was a Christmas favourite. Bryce liked animals especially cats. A portrait of Larry the cat has hung in his living room for many years.
Bryce leaves behind many friends who were like family to him. He is also survived by cousins Gloria, Sharon and Cheryl and former wife Mary. He is predeceased by his parents and brother Lester and cousin Donald.
Bryce was a unique individual - a talented, humble artist. He was the Erickson “historian” and had a fascination with old things. He lived a simple life, content with what he had. May he Rest in Peace.
Due to COVID-19 Restrictions A Celebration of Life Service will be held at the Gallery on 3rd Avenue East (Behind the Video Stop on Main) at a later date. Interment to follow. For those so wishing, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Watrous & District Arts Council, Box 63, Watrous, SK, S0K 4T0 would be appreciated.

I was sad to learn of Bryce's passing. Bryce worked for awhile for my late husband, Bill, up at the University of Saskatchewan. What I remember, though, are the Scotch tasting parties that he and Mary hosted at the house on Albert Avenue - great fun, even for those who didn't drink scotch! I remember being fascinated by Bryce's prints and paintings and by his artist's studio.

I have been recalling many happy memories of our time together. All my family are very sad to hear of your illness and passing. They too have fond memories of the birthday and Christmas gatherings. I am grateful for the visits we had last summer. I look on my 'Ericksons' with fresh eyes, remembering the events that inspired you to record them. You were never short of ideas for your work and it's tragic you didn't have more time to create them. Mary

Dear Cousin, I am so glad we had those last few visits. It was so good to know how welcoming the Watrous Community was to you. They too were fortunate to have your talent among them. I will cherish the birthday card you sent me this spring and our chat on your birthday. Rest In Peace, your work on earth is done.
