Daniel John Pedersen, 57, of Culver, died Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012.
He was born on Aug, 15, 1955 in Cloquet, the son of John and Dolly Pedersen.
Dan was a 1973 graduate of Albrook High School. Since 1974, he has been employed as a truck driver and construction yard manager by Modern Constructors and Pipe Benders, now known as Bend-Tec.
Dan loved being in the outdoors. He would often take his dog, Trader, four-wheeling to check out the back roads and trails. He enjoyed going to the stock car races, snowmobiling, hiking and looking for new grouse hunting sites. Although Dan enjoyed deer hunting, it was never about getting a trophy buck, but all about the comradery with everyone he hunted with.
Dan loved spending time with his family. He especially loved all his nieces and nephews and was happiest when he was helping others. Dan will be fondly remembered as being a big tease.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
Dan was deeply loved and will be missed by two brothers, David (Julie) Pedersen of Esko and Jim Pedersen of Deltona, Fla.; sisters, Joan Pedersen, Debbie Mager, Eva (Steve) Broberg, and Rita (Dwayne) Wait, all of Cloquet; nieces and nephews, Valerie, John, Amanda, Bethany, Krista, Kyle, Jenna, BreAnne, Kodie and Morgan; many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
