In Loving Memory of ... Sp4 Dennis Irwin Pedersen.
*** Dennis is buried at Oneota Cemetery in Duluth, MN. PH. Posted by: Robert Sage
*** Per FAG Vol.-This is a large cemetery and based on notes from other volunteer photographers, the superintendent probably does not welcome FindAGrave photographers coming in asking for a bunch of plot locations. Another photographer noted that all cemetery records for Oneota are by date of death.
You may be gone, no longer living on this earth; but you will live on - in the memories of your family and friends. There will always be a part of you living in me, your brother, sisters and those who knew you and loved you. You will live on because we remember you!
