Hiram was born September 2, 1925, in Scandinavian Township, Deuel County, SD, to Hjalmer and Cora (Hugos) Erickson. He attended Hillside School and worked on the farm with his father.

He married Nellie Louise Hayes on February 8, 1946, at Ivanhoe, MN. Hiram and Nellie farmed east of Toronto, SD, from the time of their marriage until they retired in 1996. They then moved to Hendricks, MN where they lived until Nellie´s health necessitated a move to Sioux Falls, SD to be closer to their children. Nellie passed away on January 1, 2004. Hiram lived at the Inn on Westport until his final illness in February of 2006, when he entered Sioux Valley Hospital, and finally, Bethany Lutheran Home.

Hiram was a member of the Leganger Lutheran Church. He was a hard-working man, with an enjoyment for the simple life. He loved sitting down for coffee and visiting with his family and friends, church activities, a car ride to check out the wildlife, farm animals, scenery, and crops, and hunting with his son, Ray. He will be greatly missed for his gentle strength and faithfulness to his family.

He is lovingly remembered by his 3 children: Harold J. Erickson, Minneapolis, MN, Raymond (Verneta) Erickson and Iva Lianne (John) Lambertus, all of Sioux Falls, SD; 2 grandchildren: Donovan (April) Lambertus, Sioux Falls, SD and Jessica (Jay) Lamb, Webster, SD; 3 great-grandchildren, Jamison and Josephine Lambertus, and Gabriel Lamb; 2 step-grandchildren, Anita Altheid, Rapid City, SD and Clifford Carlin, Hills, MN; 5 step-great-grandchildren, Jordan, Isaac and Parker Carlin, and Cammy and Miranda Havermann; one brother, Amos (Marleen) Erickson, 4 sisters: Bernice Thompson, Janice (Bill) Madden, Betty (Bert) Lambert and Diane (Bob) Milbauer, and numerous nieces and nephews and their families.

Hiram was preceded in death by his parents; one brother, Norris Erickson, three sisters: Doris Rolfson, Amy Hannum and Mavis Wildeboer.
