Beloved “Erik the Red” passes away after brief illness

Erik the Red
In Memoriam


An era came to an end on Tuesday, August 1st when Erik the Red, the much-loved Rodent Control Officer of CSS Acadia, passed away quietly at home after a brief illness. A fixture on the waterfront since 1997, Erik was the last of the four Rodent Control officers who so proudly served aboard ship and officially retired in 2015.

A tribute to Erik will be posted the Mascots page. Well done, good and faithful servant and God speed.
