Obituary of Arnold H. Pedersen

Columbia… Arnold H. Pedersen, 88, passed away Nov. 15, 2019. He was born Sept. 24, 1931 in Chicago, Il to Nis and Mildred Pedersen.  Arnie graduated from Taft High School (Chicago, IL) in 1950.  He was a USMC Korean War Veteran and worked in the printing trade.   His hobbies included flying airplanes, restoring the family home, woodworking, and football.   Arnie was a selfless, down to earth, hardworking man with a quiet spirit and a sharp wit.  Perhaps his greatest legacy will be how he cared for his loving wife of 65 years, Donna who has lived with dementia for the past 6 years.  He was the beloved father of David Pedersen (Sue) of Bradenton, FL, Janet Buhrow (Stan) of Lexington, SC, Sandra Kelly (Pat) of Lexington, KY, Douglas Pedersen (Cindy) of Apex, NC; 10 grandchildren; 4 great grandchildren; sister, Ellen Collard of Sarasota, FL.  He is predeceased by his parents; sister, Mary McCracken and brother, Kenneth Pedersen.
