April 8, 1971 – September 22, 2020
In Loving Memory ~ It’s with great sadness that we announce the passing of our much loved Darren Peter Pedersen, aged 49, after a heroic 8 year battle with Cancer.
Darren lived a life of abundance and inspired it in all who knew him.
He had a passion for skiing, boating, traveling the world, enjoying life with his friends and was a huge Canucks and Star Wars fan. Darren loved celebrating holidays and would go all out for both Christmas and Halloween.
Darren was a gear head taking immense joy in his love of vehicles and super cars. He combined this with his commitment to giving back with his Faith Hope Love Campaign which benefited the Bottoms Up Foundation with Dr. Manoj Raval, the One More Day Campaign which he did with his sister Kelly, annual donation drives in his office and anonymous donations and pay it forward initiatives.
Darren’s passion for his work and charitable contributions was clearly evident throughout his 25 years as a financial advisor. Darren loved what he did and developed not only work relationships, but rather friendships, as he cared deeply for his clients.
Darren was predeceased by his father Peter Daniel Pedersen (1994)
Darren is survived by his wife and soulmate, Leanne Dawn Pedersen (nee Chan), his stepson KJ, his dog Davos, mother Gail Bunnage with Ken Bunnage, siblings Michael Pedersen, Brenna Wheatley (nee Pedersen) with Jim Wheatley, Jacob, Olivia and dog Finley; Kelly Schmidt (nee Pedersen) with Mikel Schmidt, Dane, Kobyn and dog Hendrix; and a incredible network of friends and family.
It is at the request of Leanne and Darren’s immediate families that in lieu of flowers a donation in Darren Pedersen’s honor be made to St. Paul’s Foundation Colorectal Fund to continue Darren’s charitable efforts. (http://donate.helpstpauls.com/goto/DarrenPedersen.)
