Erec R. Lindberg

Erec R. Lindberg, 69, of Medford, Oregon peacefully passed away on June 6, 2022, due to complications from the carcinoid cancer he lived with for over a decade.

Erec was born on August 12, 1952, in Helena, Montana. He was raised on the farm his grandparents settled on in Simms, Montana, spent many years in New York when he owned a successful celebrity catering service and enjoyed the last seven years of his life as a motivational author and professional life coach while residing in Southern Oregon. His extraordinary life is best understood through reading the book he authored, “Your Brilliant Inner Whisper - Discover why your Inner Voice is your greatest asset.” Every chapter shares an entertaining story from his unique life and reflects his life’s purpose to share how your inner voice is your greatest asset. 

Erec was preceded in death by his loving parents, Robert S. Lindberg and Dolores M. Lindberg and his brother Mark Lindberg. He is survived by his sister Julie Lindberg Petersen (Ron), niece Solveig Petersen King (Robert) and their children Graysen and Annika King, nephew Thor Petersen (Stephanie), sister-in-law Nancy Lindberg, nephews Matt Lindberg and Luke Lindberg (Cassidy) and their children Lowmen and Levitt Lindberg, brother Ron Watson (Colleen), and sisters Monica and Gretchen. He is also survived by so many close friends.

Erec requested these final comments be shared - 

His editor, Catherine J. Rourke, "Erec, you have achieved spiritual mastery!! Your message and Inner Voice live on forever. It was the greatest honor and joy to work with you.” 

His friends, Doug and Nyleen Freeman, “Thank you for your honesty about your life and how you approached it. You are a role model for others in that respect; your book replicates that direct look at self and our world.”

His friend, Julie Hitchcock, “You have managed to guide dozens and dozens of us from living what may have been rather mediocre lives to living lives of great purpose, meaning and happiness."

In lieu of a service, Erec’s greatest wish was for his life to be remembered as an inspiration for others to fearlessly choose to live their highest version of themselves!

Erec ... I remember all the times you called me and wanted to share a passage from the I AM books (3rd volume). I loved those conversations! And as I was driving across the country on my clarity quest, you called me just for fun. You encouraged me many times to start coaching. You certainly raised many of us up as the song says. My promise to you is that I will do talks based on your wonderful book, Your Brilliant Inner Whisper. It is your legacy. I know you are on a glorious journey right now. We will all see you again. Even though I haven't seen you since I moved to NC, I miss you. ♥♥♥♥
