Eric Pedersen, 51, of West Fargo, passed away in his home unexpectedly on Friday, January 14, 2022.
Eric Dale Pedersen was born January 9, 1971, in Valley City, ND, to Lyle and Karen (Olson) Pedersen. He grew up mostly in Linton, ND, and graduated from Saguache High School in Colorado in 1989.
After high school he went to work and started a family. He drove truck and owned his own rig for many years, loved farming with his dad, and was a talented mechanic who could trouble-shoot and fix anything just by listening to it. He later worked as a millwright for many years.

He was preceded in death by his father, Lyle Pedersen; and his brother, Darin Pedersen. Visitation: Saturday, January 22, 2022, from 9:00-10:00 a.m. in West Funeral Home, West Fargo.
