May 11, 1947 - October 21, 2023
In loving memory ~
Erik W. Lauren passed away peacefully on October 21, 2023, after a long six-year journey with cancer.
Erik was born in Vancouver on May 11, 1947, to Verner and Signe Lauren. Erik was very proud of his Swedish immigrant parents. Erik leaves to mourn his loving wife Sue of 54 years, his twin sons Marty (Helki) and Dale (Tania), his four grandchildren Liam, Isaac, Ty, and Leah, his sister Elaine (Blake), and many nieces and nephews.
Erik was predeceased by his mom and dad, his brother and business partner and friend, Gerry, sisters-in-law, Pat Lauren and Sheila Biondo, and his brothers-in-law, Harry Cunningham and Franco Biondo.
Erik was well respected in the Construction Industry throughout B.C. Erik's company Lauren Construction Ltd. built many projects in the area, including Williams Lake City Hall, Cariboo Memorial Complex Twin Ice Arena, Gibralter Room Theatre, College of New Caledonia Campus in Quesnel, and many schools in the area just to name a few.
Erik did all this while raising two remarkable boys and developing his ranch. Erik was very proud of his family and his grandchildren.
Erik earned the respect of all and left a lasting impression on everyone he met. Erik was larger than life and the best the world had to offer.
We will miss you Erik.
As a family, we would like to thank his BC Cancer Clinic Team led by Dr. Sharlene Gill, Liver Surgeon, Dr. Scudamore, his Surgical Trauma Team, Dr. Joos, Dr. Magnuson, and the staff at Deni House.
