I was fortunate to obtain the rank of Eagle Scout in 1986 under Mr. Erb. I fondly recall attending many campouts with Mr. Erb, including one where he proclaimed some stew, that unbeknownst to him had inadvertently had a "cowchip" kicked into it, as the "best stew ever".

Lee proudly and honorably served Troop 186 as Scoutmaster for over 25 years. He was dedicated to instilling scouting values of citizenship and service, and to developing leadership in the many young men as they progressed through scouting ranks. I have many fond memories of Troop 186 scouting activities and have always felt honored to have assisted him as an Assistant Scoutmaster. He made it fun. He made a difference in many lives and will be truly missed.

Lee was a very good friend and a Scouting Buddy. He was also an active member of the Experimental Aircraft Association, and through their Young Eagle program, he got many of our community's youth into the cockpit of a small airplane to get a first hand experience of flying an aircraft. He was a U.S. Air Force Veteran and a retired aeronautical engineer. He was responsible for the design of the original OH-58 Kiowa (Bell Jet Ranger) Rotor Blades, the design and manufacture of the F-16 - Fighting Falcon landing gear, and a designed a very important safety device to the Northrop T-38 Talon Canopy ejection system, that saved many pilot's lives. Lee was a very moral individual who was a very positive in fluence on a lot of the youth of Arlington, and I will miss hearing him say "Righty-O"!

Lee was Scoutmaster, confidant, counselor, and a friend to many of us who were part of Troop 186. He shepherded many boys from young Tenderfoot Scouts to Eagles. Most importantly, he helped us grow into men of good character. Personally, I have probably six or seven long-term camps with Lee both as a youth and an adult and always enjoyed watching how he worked with the Scouts to help them grow and exceed beyond what the Scout thought he could accomplish.
I’m sad that he is gone but also glad that he is with the Lord and reunited with his beloved Alice. God Bless you Lee.

The world has lost a kind and generous man. Scoutmaster Lee H. Erb taught me many lessons and values during my boyhood, for which I am forever grateful. I will celebrate his life by donating funds to the current Troop 186, or it's equivalent. God speed, Mr. Erb. I'm sending thoughts of comfort and peace to Mrs. Erb and Russell during this difficult time.

This is a sad time for all former Troop 186 Scouts and leaders. My heart and prayers go out to his family and friends. Mr. Erb was truly a great and giving man who had an enormous impact on my Scouting experience. Thank you Mr. Erb for all you did for Scouting and so many young men! Thank you to the Erb family for sharing Mr. Erb with us for so long. He will be missed, but not forgotten!
