Carl Erik Enockson
July 27, 1972 - May 7, 2018
Erik was born on July 27, 1972 to Karl Leif and Mary Louise Enockson at
Little Company of Mary Hospital in Torrance, California. He grew up in
Manhattan Beach and attended Grandview Elementary and Center Middle
School. He then attended Mira Costa High School and graduated in 1990.
While at Mira Costa High School, Erik was a member of Boy Scout Troop
849 in Manhattan Beach and in 1989 he attained the rank of Eagle Scout.
He was accepted at the University of Southern California and graduated in
1994 with a Bachelor of Science degree in English Literature. He was then
accepted at Willamette School of Law in Salem, Oregon and graduated in
1996 with a Juris Doctor (JD) degree. He next attended Linfield College in
McMinnville, Oregon and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in
He worked in Prineville, Oregon as a public defender and also with the law
firm of Dutli & Wilson for a few years. He then returned to California and
was employed by the Glazer, Weil law firm in Century City, California.
Erik later moved to Yuma, Arizona in 2010 to help manage the business
affairs of Double EE Enterprises, a family-owned real estate holding
In 1985, the family was in Washington D.C. on vacation. It was Erik's 13th
birthday and we had a celebratory dinner at the Kennedy Performing Arts
Theater. The harpist treated us, and the guests, to a beautiful rendition of
Happy Birthday.
While he attended Mira Costa High School, Erik was a four-year member of
the Mira Costa Mustang Marching Band. He also was member of the
Torrance Area Youth Band (TAYB) for several years. When he was a
freshman at USC he joined the Trojan Marching Band (TMB) and hefted
the tuba for his four years at USC.
The TMB traveled and performed extensively, aside from USC sporting
events. His unending stories of the road trips and TMB antics brought tears
of laughter to the whole family. Erik firmly believed that TMB was the
world's greatest marching band.
While attending USC, he was affiliated with Theta Xi social fraternity and
Phi Delta Phi law fraternity. He also was secretary of the Trojan Young
Republicans and attended the National Republican Party Convention held
in Washington, D.C. in 1994.
Erik's favorite holiday was Christmas. Throughout the year, he would
gather prank gifts tailored to each family member. The gifts, again, caused
the whole family to roar with laughter. He had an exceptionally sharp wit
and a keen sense of humor.
He recently received his ham radio license WX6XX, following in the
footsteps of his radio wizard uncle, Arthur Enockson W6EA.
His parents, sister, Dr. Gretchen Louise Janson (Rich), niece Emma Louise
Janson and two nephews Matthew Allen Janson and William Enockson
Janson will all miss his keen wit and exceptionally broad knowledge.
Family and friends are invited to join in a celebration of Erik's life on Friday,
June 1 from 2:00-4:00 pm. The event will take place at The Lakes at El
Segundo, located at 400 S. Sepulveda Blvd. in El Segundo, CA 90245.
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations made in Erik's
honor to the Humane Society of Yuma (HSOY) located at 4050 S. Avenue
4-1/2 E, Yuma, AZ 85365.
