Chad Thomas Pederson, 40, of Prairie du Chien, passed away unexpectedly Saturday, May 28, 2022.

He was born on Dec. 19, 1981, the son of Kerry (Dave Hipenbecker) and Gary Pederson. Chad was born in Madison and relocated to Prairie du Chien as a child with his mother and younger brother. He graduated from Prairie du Chien High School and attended the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. Chad married Erin Ray on Aug. 18, 2011. If you ask Chad, his biggest accomplishment was being a father. Chad loved sports, especially college basketball and the Milwaukee Bucks. He worked as vice president of MotoRace Tire for four years in Prairie du Chien. He spent his free time watching various sports, golfing, cooking, grilling, reading, and UTV riding. Chad loved music, traveling, trivia, history, and spending time with friends and family. He always had a smile on his face and a laugh to share with anyone he met. Chad was known for his quick wit and love of a great joke.

To Chad, his family was his world and they meant everything to him. He is survived by his wife of 10 years, Erin; their children, Carter Pederson and Max Clanton; his parents, Kerry and Dave Hipenbecker and Gary (Denise) Pederson; his siblings, Kevin (Tallie) Pederson, Matt and Bailey Hipenbecker, Madeline (Jason) Dull, and Alissa (Tyler) Lange; his maternal grandmother, Sally White; parents-in-law, Sue (Bob) Plomedahl and Alan Ray; nieces, Ella Lange, Ella Pederson, Emma Pederson, and Harper Dull; nephews, Jack Lange and Quinton Dull; his devoted German shepherds, Dash and Denali; and numerous special aunts and uncles. 

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Tom White; paternal grandparents, Randy and Donna Pederson; and his beloved shepherd, Izzy.

A Celebration of Chad’s Life will be Friday, June 3, from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Prairie du Chien Country Club.
