So sorry to hear about Ercel's death. I worked with Ercel for 7 years in the Tide Tower as he was the pipe-fitter and I was the metal trades welder. We played golf together on many of the courses in KC and always had a good time. Grover Slavens was our helper for all the big jobs and we all enjoyed the times we had at work. May God rest his soul! Blessings to the family. SDB

Rosalie and family , I am very sorry to hear of our good friend Ercel passing. Ercel was a good guy to work with in the Mech. Dept. at P&G. I Can't think of any one that enjoyed their retirement any more than Ercel.There was a lot of time for fishing & golf. The early start times at the course (in the dark) with Ercel & David stand out in my mind. I and the other Old Soapers will miss Ercel very much. R.I.P. Don L. McGinnis

So sorry for the familie’s loss. Although I never really worked with Ericl very much at P&G. I got to know him very well on the golf course. Even though he was 16 years older than me , he managed to beat me most of the time. He was a good friend and golfer. He will be greatly missed.
