Leland R. and Renee Erickson




Lee served on the North Ogden City Council for twelve years from 1971 to 1983.

He married the former Renee Heiner, a North Ogden girl in 1956.  They have lived in North Ogden for 60 years and raised four children.  Todd (Annette) Erickson, Kelly Lee (Gary) Raught, Teal (Matt) Wardle, Amber (Dave) Lerohl.  They are all living in Weber County and raising their families.  They have thirteen grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren.

Lee was born at Bear Lake and moved to Ogden later and graduated from Ogden High School in 1951.  He graduated from the old Weber College in 1953 and from Brigham Young University with a Business Degree in 1957.  He also graduated from Pacific Coast Banking School at the University of Washington. 

He was in the U.S. Navy and spent 1954 and 1955 serving at the Naval Air Base in Agana, Guam.
He spent his working career of 39 years in Bank Management in five different Branch Banks.  The bank that he enjoyed most was the North Ogden branch of First Security Bank, which he managed for 13 years.  It was great to work with so many good friends and neighbors.

Over the years he served in many organizations, clubs, boards, committees, and associations.  In North Ogden he enjoyed his service on the North Ogden City Council.  He also served as president of the North Ogden Kiwanis Club in 1965.  He was chairman of the North Ogden Cherry Days Celebration, which at that time included the “Little Buckaroo Rodeo.”  They served as presidents of the Bates school PTA.  He received the Distinguished Service Award presented by the Ben Lomond Jaycees in 1966.

Lee and Renee are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and have both served in many ward and stake callings.


North Ogden has been a wonderful place to live and raise a family among so many great people and to watch the city grow and develop during the last 60 years.
