We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at West Funeral Home - West Fargo
Edward LeRoy Pederson was born on July 30, 1944 to Leonard and Celia (Legrid) Pederson near Karnack, ND.
After high school, he worked at a creamery in Cooperstown before moving to Litchville to work in the lumber yard and then fuel delivery. He was a jack of all trades and also enjoyed locksmithing, small engine repair and volunteer firefighting. In 1998 Ed moved to West Fargo where he operated forklifts.
Ed met his wife Sharon in 1964 and married a year later. In their 57-year journey together they had 4 children: Steve, Shari, Stephanie and Shad.
After retiring in 2010, Ed spent time traveling and gardening (weeds were afraid, very very afraid).
