Victoria Times Colonist, 3 April 2009

ERLAM, ROBERT LLOYD, 1916 - 2009. Bob Erlam died peacefully March 26, 2009 in Cowichan District Hospital at Duncan, B,C. on Vancouver Island. He was 92. Born in Edmonton on November 9, 1916, he lived in Calgary and served for five years in the Canadian Army, seeing action as a dispatch rider in Sicily, Italy and North Africa during the second world war. In 1945 he married Patricia Doreen "Rusty " Metson of Winnipeg. Two years later they and their infant son Paul moved to Whitehorse Yukon, where Bob worked at numerous jobs, including the Yukon Electrical and army diesel power plants. He started working at The Whitehorse Star in the early 60's for then owner Harry Boyle and in 1967 he and Rusty bought The Star which they owned for 35 years. Bob took pictures of Yukon events: of forest fires, plane crashes, rescues, surging glaciers, floods, mountain climbs and new mines opening. Some appeared in Time and Life and the world press. Well-known throughout the territory, his upbeat spirit and can-do enthusiasm were described by a friend on Bob's 90th birthday: "You took chances and succeeded; survived the war, married the best girl, turned a little into a lot in the Yukon and enjoyed an interesting retirement. From soldier, husband, parent, power plant operator, photographer, newspaper owner, raconteur, artist, art collector, dog musher, stage manager, vintner, world traveller, you have done enough for two lives already. Truly a life well lived. " Bob and Rusty travelled extensively, having homes near Nelson and recently Arbutus Ridge on Vancouver Island, but their hearts remained in the Yukon. They sold the paper to its present owner, Jackie Pierce in 2002. Bob was a founding member of the Yukon Foundation in 1980 and a member of the Yukon Order of Pioneers for 40 years. He is survived by his wife of 63 years, "Rusty " of Nelson, son Paul (Maryann) of Vancouver, grandsons Chris and James of Nelson, Garth of Vancouver and numerous relatives in B.C. and Alberta. A gathering of friends and relatives is to take place during the month of May at the Longbeach Rd. family home near Nelson. Bob's ashes will be interred in the Yukon. The family wishes to thank the emergency staff at Arbutus Ridge for their prompt action during Bob's stroke and also Dr. Rimmer and nurses at the Cowichan District Hospital in Duncan, B.C. 534092
