Erick Johann Hodne

-Eulogy by Johann's Mother, Joy 

It is with great sadness I announce the passing of our dear son, brother, and friend, Erick Johann Hodne.

Johann was a brilliant and talented poet, musician, philosopher and athlete. He had a kind heart and a magic touch. We miss him more than words can say.

My daughter Eva, son Soren and I wish to thank everyone for the loving kindness and prayers you have extended to us during this difficult time. It has made a tremendous difference to us in this time of profound loss. I know we all share a deep love for Johann, and I can assure you, Johann loves all of you dearly.

A special thank-you to the Singh family and the Scott family for providing homes away from home for Johann, as well as a special, special thank-you to Veralyn for renting a suite to Johann in her home. He lived there for one year and he was happier living there than anywhere else in his life

Johann saved a teabag quote that is worth repeating here…

"Every beat of your heart is a rhythm of your soul”

So, let us all “Rock On” for Joh, who is probably skateboarding in heaven right now. I invite you to carry on Johann’s Legacy of Love.

Johann was a longtime friend of Bill W. and a true friend of yours.


Believe in something and believe in you, I do

Peace, Love, Joy

A celebration of life will be held at 2:00 pm on Thursday, December 13, 2018 at the First Unitarian Church of Winnipeg located at 603 Wellington Crescent.
