He was born on December 26, 1968 in Madison at St. Mary’s Hospital to Jim and Jean Letcher. He went to Middleton High School. Erin worked roofing, building decks and painting. He loved to drive and loved cars. He had a big heart and was always making jokes to see other people laugh. Erin was a very funny person. Family and friends meant a lot to him. He had a wonderful memory- dates of birthdays and special events he never forgot anyone. He was never afraid to say he loved you. His best friends were his brother and sister. Erin loved sports, he loved his Seahawks and Russell Wilson. He was an avid Badgers fan. He loved family reunions, shooting pool, bowling and most his Jackson.
He went to everyone’s funeral to comfort the family. He always wanted to help. Erin has been struggling for years with three throat cancers, then bone cancer in his hip. He always looked strong because he was so big and of course he never wanted it any other way.
