November 27, 1946 – May 28, 2024

When someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.

- Anonymous -

Our hearts are heavy but full as we announce the passing our beloved husband, father, uncle, grandfather, and great grandfather Henning Arvid Pedersen. Our Papa brought immeasurable joy into every life he touched, hand he shook, smile he gave. Always a kind word to give and looooooooong conversation to be had.

This man made a difference in the world.

His mischievous smile, playful banter and love of debates plus best big warm hugs will be very much missed.


Henning loved to argue any side of an argument, as long as the transfer of knowledge occurred. He loved a good book, history, nature, good food but most of all his family. Always family first. His passion and kindness left a mark on us all.

He lived a life of white and black, never in the gray. He encouraged us all to always be kind, "don't worry about it", and do the right thing.

What a rarity!

We will miss him terribly, but the time granted with him was the most beautiful and inspirational gift.

"Just enjoy life".

Per Henning's wishes, no service will be held.

In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Powell River Hospital Foundation is appreciated.
