Being a mechanic just seemed to come natural to Donald "Dunk" Erickson. After all, he was only six years old when his father opened up the garage in Kelliher. That was back in the 1930s. His father never forced him to work in the garage, "it was just what you did to help out during hard times." "When the Depression hit, the folks moved from central Wisconsin.
