Ned L. Ericksen, 18, son of Harry G. Ericksen, prominent merchant of this city, was killed on the highway near San Bernardino, Cal., Wednesday evening. The young man, who was traveling to Los Angeles on his motorcycle, was having some motor trouble with his machine, and had driven off the road to repair it, the dispatch said. Failing to repair the machine, he was hailing a passing motorist to ask assistance when another automobile crashed into him, killing him. He was on his way to enroll as a student in the National Radio and Electrical school in Los Angeles. He was a former student of the North Sanpete high school, where he excelled in musical lines. In collaboration with his aunt, Mrs. Chelsey P. Seely, he had written and composed the music for a number of songs, some of which recently had been broadcast. He was a member of Battery D. 222nd Field artillery, Utah National guard. He was a teacher in the South ward L. D. S. sunday School. The young man and a companion, Fred Rasmussen, Jr., visited the Century of Progress exposition in Chicago last July, returning on the same motorcycle which Ned was riding at the time of the accident.
He was born here April 3, 1915. His mother, Mrs. Tressa L. Ericksen, died May 2, 1933. He is survived by his father, two brothers, and a sister, Robert L. Ericksen, Bountiful; Dick and Naomi Ericksen, Mt. Pleasant; his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ericksen and Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Larsen., all of Mt. Pleasant.
