Dearest Renholm Family, our memories of time spent together are many thru the 45 years. We treasure them all and acknowledge those years to be among the best of our lives. A great friend. Who warmed up the cars on freezing winter days? A great Dad. Who said measure 3 times and cut once? A great teacher. God bless you. Love, Paul & Di

From: Brad Beck
Relation: Family Friend

So many lasting memories with such a wonderful family and a great man. Couldn’t have asked for better neighbors growing up in my childhood years. Erik and Marie witnessed a lot of shenanigans and foolish behavior across the street but they always supported us, loved us, and made us feel like family anyway. Erik would do anything for our family and always displayed such a caring and giving nature. I was so grateful when he would often offer his Canucks tickets so we could go cheer on the new hometown NHL team (even though they were really bad in the early years). My first ever concert as a young boy was with Erik and the Renholm family at the Pacific Coliseum. They took me to see Johnny Cash and it was awesome! A great role model who inspired so many people with his character and warm, friendly disposition. You will be missed by many. God Bless. Love, Brad
