Viewing, memorial service scheduled for Carl Ervin

A public viewing of former Cleveland High School and Seattle University basketball star Carl Ervin will be held Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Bonney-Watson Funeral Home on Capitol Hill, 1732 Broadway.

A memorial service will be held at Mount Zion Baptist Church, 1634 19th Ave., Seattle, at 11 a.m. on July 9.

I never got the chance to get to know Ervin as well as I would have liked. But, from the day I first met him, he always came up with something positive to say.

He answered the phone every time I called. No matter what I needed, he found a way to help.

His passion for the game was evident in the way he carried himself as an assistant coach at O’Dea. He had a smile on his face every time I saw him and he often slapped me on the shoulder or shook my hand when he walked by after games on the way into the locker room.

Here is Jerry Brewer’s column on Ervin.

Here is my story from earlier this year on the O’Dea coaching staff.
