Erwin was interested in classical literature, classical music and the origins of mankind. He spent many a night on the rooftop of his Little Compton home stargazing. He kept himself fit by swimming and walking along the beautiful Rhode Island beaches.
Dr. Hultsch is survived by his loving daughter and son-in-law, Susanne and Stefan Feldmann and much cherished grandchildren, Nia and Tori.
