John "Jack" Arthur Erber

July 30, 1934 ~ October 12, 2019 (age 85)


John “Jack” A. Erber, 85, of Charlevoix, passed away October 12, 2019 at his home in Charlevoix. 

Jack was born July 30, 1934 in Charlevoix, MI to Karl J. Erber and Margaret Fitch.  Jack enjoyed life all over.  Some places he settled were Charlevoix, MI; Trout Creek, MI; Bruce Crossing, MI; Beaver Island, MI; finally going full circle back to Charlevoix.

Jack was an avid boater and water fan, spending as much time as he could on the water.  He was a handy man, and truly a “Jack of all trades,” as he could build and fix most anything.  Jack and Joyce enjoyed a good adventure, traveling numerous places to enjoy them.

On September 10, 1955 in Charlevoix, Jack married Joyce Wojan who survives.  Also surviving him are their three children, Karla (Jerry) Pease of Charlevoix, MI, Paul (Elizabeth) Erber of Fletcher, NC, and Eric (Anita) Erber of Rockford, MI.  Along with a brother Tom (Sue) Erber of Charlevoix, MI, a sister Lenore Thornton of New York, and eight grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren. 

No services are planned.
