Kenneth Melvin Pearson was born on August 22, 1937 to Melvin and Myrna (Nord) Pearson in Pipestone, MN. On June 2, 1956, he married Marjorie Johnson. They raised four children: Cindy, Dirk, Scott and Darla.

Kenneth truly enjoyed life and believed it was all about family and showing care for others. He was a kind and gentle person who loved spending time with family and friends. His philosophy was to not dwell on the negativity but to keep life simple and enjoy everything he could. He was known for his quick wit, his infectious smile and his kind and compassionate spirit. He was an avid golfer and loved to work on International Harvester (IH) tractors and fix anything he could with his mechanical experience and knowledge. He enjoyed sitting on the back deck and just soaking up the peacefulness. Sports and especially the Twins were a favorite pastime for him. He was also an avid music fan and loved to dance a waltz with his wife. Kenneth loved his wife and family more than anything else as they always came first for him. He was always making it a point to attend any family function happening and never miss anything going on. On Sunday, October 6, 2019, Kenneth, loving husband, father of four children, brother, grandpa and great-grandpa passed away surrounded by his family at the age of 82.

Kenneth will be deeply missed by his wife Marjorie of 63 years; children: Cindy (Daniel) Moen, Windom, MN; Dirk (Judy) Pearson, Hendricks, MN, Scott (Sheryl) Pearson, Hendricks, MN and Darla (Jeff) Hamer of Brandon, SD; eight grandchildren: Amber, Greg, Tom, Hope, Taylor, Ashley, Ethan and Alexander; 10 great-grandchildren: Trevor and Carter Healy, Jameson and Easton Pearson, Rayleigh, Emma and Bristol Stultz, Grady and Griffin Pearson and Brenna Pearson; and sister, Janet (Allen) Johnson, Sioux Falls, SD.

He is preceded in death by his parents; stepmother, Pearl; sisters, Elaine Kingslien and Fern Nelson.
