<div itemprop="description">Erik Niilo Pilvet, “Finnboy” <br>June 12, 1968 – Sept 7, 2016 <br> <br>It is with great sadness that we tell of the passing of Erik Pilvet, our beloved son, brother and uncle. Erik loved life, his family and friends, always putting the needs of others before his own. <br> <br>He always visited and called his mom at least once a week, even when she was away for the winter. He went grocery shopping with her and spent time at the cottage with her. It was Erik who remembered the tiniest details from childhood, often correcting his sisters’ recollections. His nieces and nephew had a very special place in his heart. He helped with driving them to practice and was patient with them while helping with their homework. <br> <br>Erik enjoyed spending time at the cottage, fishing, driving his tractor mower, playing with his nieces and entertaining his many friends. Who remembers the “sauna rules”? How about playing darts in his kitchen at home? “Wait…we have to keep track of the over-all scores.” Erik would say regardless of his standing in the game. He kept accurate records, never fudging the numbers. How many people couch surfed at Erik’s place, he always had an open door for anyone who needed a place to stay. Erik would surprisingly show up to many friend’s houses, making the time to help them move. <br> <br>Erik had a heart of gold, however it was not strong enough to give him more time with us. A private family funeral has already been held. <br> <br>All of Erik’s friends are invited to remember him in “his style” at his “Celebration of Life”. Please RSVP for the party being held on Saturday, October 1st, 2016, by sending an email to by September 28, 2016. Further details will be emailed to you. <br> <br>All donations are welcome in Erik Pilvet’s Memory, to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. (Please see the donation link at the bottom of this page). <br> <br></div>
