Chester (Chet) Pedersen, age 76 passed away at his home in Quincy on Saturday December 1. He was born March 25, 1942 in Ellensburg Washington to Marius and Della (Johnson) Pedersen. He attended elementary school in the Badger Pocket area of Ellensburg (Denmark Grade School) He attended Ellensburg High School and was an outstanding leader in his school's FFA program. Chet went on to graduate from WSU in 1964 with a degree in Agronomy. He was employed as an Agronomist for several years before starting his own business in the Columbia Basin (Columbia Agriculture Consultants). His career as an Agronomist was an extension of his family history. His parents farmed in Badger Pocket, his maternal grandparents farmed in Woldale, and his paternal grandparents maintained the family farm in Langeland, Denmark.

Chet has been a member of the Quincy Chamber of Commerce, Rotary, Port Commissioner of Quincy, served on the Columbia Basin Development League, served on the Big Bend Community College Foundation Board, has served as Farmer Consumer Awareness Day (FCAD) Chairman since its beginning 38 years ago. It was truly an honor for him to serve as chairman and he loved the committee members that he worked with. He was a member of the Washington State Farm Bureau. Chet was also a member of Alpha Kappa Lambda Fraternity at WSU. He served on the Quincy Beautification Board and was instrumental in the planting of many beautiful flowers throughout the city. Chet spent many summer evenings after work cultivating and watering the city flower beds. He loved the Quincy community and had a strong commitment to serve.

Chet loved anything that had to do with agriculture. He took great pride in the lifelong relationships that he developed with the farmers in the Columbia Basin Area.

If Chet had a spare moment, he tended to his own beautiful bountiful garden and beautiful flower beds at his residence.
Chet placed high priority on family gatherings and had a great capacity for giving. His joy came from watching the young ones delighted with their gifts.

Chet is survived by two sisters, Linda Pedersen of Ellensburg, Barbara Rodden and husband Rick Rodden of Yakima; three nieces- Barbara Joy (John) Paloy , Linda Renee Mann, Julie Kay(Jeff) Tobin, and four grand nieces and grand nephew - Della Anne and Henry Paloy; Molly, Madelyn, and MacKenzie Tobin.

It is so nice to meet Chet and learn about his life. My husband and I travel through Quincy now and again and have enjoyed the flowers that have been planted around your streets. We have commented about wondering who planted and takes care of these beautiful flowers. Now we have met Chet and want to thank him for all his time and effort. It is a joy to drive through your town.
Our condolences to the family he was a beautiful man like his flowers!!

I have known Chet since I was a young boy. Chet's father and my father, Walter Stampfly, were friends for many years. He gave my father good business advice on different occasions. When we were boys, Chet stayed with us many times. Back then he helped us with haying and harvesting grain.

We were together at Washington State University during the same years after high school and saw each other often. Chet majored in Agronomy and I was in Ag. Economics. Later on, we both worked in the Columbia Basin. I sometimes asked him for advice on the best farming practices and he always gave me good direction.
My wife and I will both miss his friendly greetings and true friendship over the years! Our deepest sympathy goes out to his family!
