Steve Guy Pederson Jr., 74, passed away surrounded by family on Sept. 16, 2015, in Anchorage, Alaska. First and foremost, Steve was a dedicated husband of almost 50 years to his beloved wife. Steve was also an incredible dad and grandpa, an avid fisherman, known for his sense of humor and ability to tell captivating stories, and was able to fix just about anything - except for his mom's new Singer sewing machine, which he and his brother took apart as kids and were unable to put back together. Steve was a kind, gentle and generous man who made life better for those that had the privilege of knowing him.

Steve was born to Helga Adams and Steve Pederson Sr. in Solomon, Alaska, on Jan. 17, 1941. Steve graduated from Sheldon Jackson High School in Sitka, Alaska, served in the Alaska National Guard in the early 1960s and was honorably discharged and briefly attended the University of Alaska, Fairbanks. Steve's love of airplanes from a young age led to a combination of schooling and training that allowed him to become an aircraft mechanic for Eastern Airlines and United Airlines for 32 years. In 1964, Steve went to New York City to learn how diagnose airplane electronics and met Marianne. They were married on Nov. 27, 1965, and lived on Long Island, where their three sons and daughter were born. The Pederson family moved to Cary, N.C., in 1980, and then to Marietta, Ga., in 1984. Steve and Marianne also lived in the Bay Area, northern Virginia, Denver, Colo., and Long Island before returning to Marietta, where they reside.

Steve is survived by his wife, Marianne, of 49 years 10 months; son, Steven (Noriko) of Lilburn, Ga.; son, John (Tiffani) of Marietta, Ga.; son, George of Anchorage; daughter, Jennifer (Jeffrey) Pederson Weinberger of Anchorage; and ten grandchildren: Aya, John, Kaci, Graci, Maci, Jacob, Marilynn, Will, Kate and Cara. Steve leaves behind his sister, Emily Nanouk of Unalakleet, Alaska; many cousins, nephews, nieces and extended family; and countless friends. Steve was predeceased by his mother, Helga; father, Steve Sr.; brother, Jim; and sister, Marie. Steve will be missed by all people who knew him. Steve's funeral mass was held on Sept. 21, 2015, at St. Benedict's Catholic Church in Anchorage, with burial immediately afterwards at Angelus Memorial Park. A visitation was held at Evergreen Memorial Chapel.
