Scott Erickson, Harbor Foods, Passes Away

Scott Erickson, CTO and 4th generation owner of Harbor Foods, passed away unexpectedly of natural causes on May 24 in his home. Scott was 52.

He began working in the family-owned distribution business back in high school and worked at Harbor in many capacities along with his cousin, Justin Erickson – currently CEO of Harbor Foods. Scott was instrumental in taking Harbor from a small, local Aberdeen, WA company to a thriving business across the entire west coast.

Scott will be remembered for many things, but by using his own words, we can understand him better. He described being friendly, one of Harbor Foods’ core values, by saying, “FRIENDLY means being humble, warm and approachable in the dedication to the well-being of others.” That was who Scott was, and he will be remembered for living his life that way.

CDA extends its sincere condolences to the Erickson family and to all at Harbor Foods during this difficult time.
