Choc Douglas Ericsson was born on February 20, 1967 to Gary Eugene and Donna Charlene (Harrel) Ericsson in Benson, Arizona. The family lived in College Station, Texas for a short period of time before moving to Pocatello, Idaho. They lived there until Choc was in the 3rd grade. They moved to Salmon, Idaho where Choc graduated from Salmon High School in 1985. He attended Ricks College for one year before going on his two year mission for the LDS Church in the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania area. After serving his mission Choc returned to Idaho and attended the Ricks College and Brigham Young University. While attending college he was self employed as a horse trainer. Choc also published and edited the North American Cow Dog magazine. He also worked with his father on cow dog training videos. In the fall of 1992 Choc moved to Kansas. He was united in marriage to Glenda Snyder on April 30, 1993 in Great Bend, Kansas. They were blessed with three children, Reata Brooke, Hailey Kay and Quaid Snyder. Their families had known each other for many years and their story is a true love story. They made their home in several different places including, a cowboy teepee in Idaho, a travel trailer in which they traveled in training horses, southern Oklahoma, Medicine Lodge, Kansas and various other places. They moved to Woodward in the fall of 1998 and have lived here since that time.

Choc served as a police officer in Durant and Mooreland before he went to work for the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics in 2000. Choc had worked his way up to Senior Agent. He was a gentle loving father who cherished his family. Choc loved spending time with his children and loved working on projects with them. He was very devoted to his church, Church of Jesus Christ Latter Day Saints where he taught Sunday School. One of Chocís greatest passions was training horses with his wife and family.
