Albert "Big Al" Erickson was buried with military honors in the Fort Logan National Cemetery near Denver last weekend after attempts to find family were unsuccessful.

Erickson died Oct. 7 at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Salt Lake City."He got his military burial," said Sherlene Evans, decedent affairs clerk at the hospital.

Evans is still trying to reach relatives of the 68-year-old, who had resided in Utah for more than 20 years.
