Erling Pedersen

PEDERSEN, Erling – Peacefully at Strathcona Long Term Care on Thursday, September 16th, 2021 in his 94th year.  Beloved husband for 58 years of Gudde Pedersen.  Loving father of Glenn Pedersen and his partner Holly. Dear grandfather “FarFar” of Duncan and Cameron.  Erling will be sadly missed by his extended family and friends.  Erling immigrated to Canada from Denmark in 1957, proudly becoming a Canadian Citizen in 1988.  He was a long-time furniture maker at Nordic Furniture in Toronto and Markdale.  At Erling’s request, a private graveside service will be conducted at the Sunset Mindepark Urn Cemetery, Puslinch.  The family would like to thank the Care Team at Strathcona Long Term Care for the love and tenderness they gave to Erling.  Those wishing to make a donation in memory of Erling are asked to consider the Strathcona Residents Council or the Danish Lutheran Church of Toronto.  Arrangements entrusted to the England Funeral Home, Mount Forest. 


My condolences to Erling Pedersen’s family! Remember times in Markdale spent with you! Sincere sympathy to all of you.

I was saddened to hear of Erling's passing. He was a kind man, always smiling and would greet me when I visited my mom across the hall. Condolences to his family. May he rest in peace.

Erling's smile is already greatly missed around the building. He was such a presence and we were blessed to have gotten to know Erling.
May he rest peacefully.
My condolences to the family.

I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. I use to visit him and his wife with Britta. We always had to sit down and have some coffee and food during our visits. He was a sweet man and I am glad I had the chance to meet him and his wife.
