Transcript of 9JeJUUVtd VeJUUm ~cm Hanson if she wanted to cruise in his 1956 Ford convertible. That happened
Bernard "Bernie" Vernon Erickson was born on September 1, 1936 in Traverse County, Minnesota to Edward and Olga (Will) Erickson. On March 29, 1953 he was confirmed at the First Presbyterian Church in Wheaton. Bernard met the love. of his life on Main Street in Wheaton when he stopped and asked Beverly Hanson if she wanted to cruise in his 1956 Ford convertible. That happened on July 13, 1958. It was love at first sight.
Bernard grew up a farmer and farmed with his two brothers northeast of Wheaton. In the mid 1980's Bernie and Beverly, along with their sons, purchased a gas station on the intersection of Highway 75 and Highway 27 in Wheaton. Along with selling oil they were running a semi with the first trips from the elevator in Wheaton to Minneapolis and later over the road trucking. The station was sold to Jerry Fischer, and Bernard worked there and later followed Jerry when he got the Ford dealership. When Bernard retired he continued working on cars (his hobby) for twelve years until he couldn't do it health wise. Beverly was right there helping.
