Aaron Kristoffer Pederson, age 51, passed away unexpectedly on December 27, 2023 at his home. A celebration of life will be held at a later date in conjunction with his father. Aaron was born January 7, 1972, in Albert Lea to Terry and Patricia (Hanson) Pederson. He grew up in Albert Lea until moving to Phoenix, AZ in 1986 where he attended Shadow Mountain High School. Aaron returned to Albert Lea in his young adult years.
Aaron had a passion for riding motorcycles, fishing, gambling, and old cars. His greatest love was spending time with his friends, family, and most of all with his dogs; Sheena, Angel, Koda, and Devilyn. Aaron was always one to push the limits in all aspects of life, gaining him the moniker, daredevil. When he wasn't riding motorcycles with friends or fishing he could be found teasing and pranking his loved ones. Aaron's friends will tell you he was the type of friend who you could count on at any hour of the day and would always be by your side in times when you need a friend the most. All who knew Aaron could agree his most notable characteristics were being sarcastic, stubborn, and brutally honest. However, all who knew him will also say that's why they loved Aaron so dearly. There are no words to describe how much Aaron is already missed and the impact he left on the people closest to him.
Aaron is survived by his mother Patricia; his sweet dog Devilyn; siblings Mitch (Lynn) Pederson, Kelly Hagen, Penny Pederson of AZ, and Brandee King of OH; many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, cousins, and so many special friends.
He is preceded in death by his grandparents; brother-in-law Dave King of OH; and his father Terry, who joined him just 24 hours later.
In lieu of flowers the family requests memorials be made to the American Heart Association.
