Erving worked at the Spartanburg County Public Library for many years, at both the Pine Street and Church street locations. He loved books, especially history, literature and fine art books and was an avid gardener of camellias, but his favorite hobby was getting people to stop a minute and have a good laugh. His kindness and loyalty to friends and family will be cherished always.
