63, of Lowell/Lake Dale, IN, died unexpectedly but peacefully in his home on November 12, 2023. David is survived by his father, Birger Pearson; children, Jake (Kaitlyn) Persson, Jonathen Persson and Elizabeth Pearson; grandchildren, Wyatt, Weston & Waylon; siblings, Ingrid (Jose Lloccla-Diaz) Persson, Kristin (Alfredo Gonzalez) Persson, Daniel Persson, Sven Persson, Anders Persson; nieces and nephews, Turner, Jesus, Rosy, Elisa, Armando; his family and friends of Lake Dale Ale including best friend, Jeanette (Randy) Raby. He was preceded in death by his mother, Karen Pearson.
David was born in California on February 11th, 1960. After high school, David started his apprenticeship in the Local Plumbers Union in California. After meeting Jake and Jon’s mom, David moved to IL and joined UA Local 130 Plumbers Union out of Chicago, where he would later retire. David welcomed his first son Jake, and four years later welcomed his second Jon.
David was a complicated man but a good man. He would give his shirt off his back to anyone and would help anyone and everyone. From his contagious smile and laugh, canny jokes, delicious food, or how he would just sit and listen for hours just to be there. He was so proud of his son Jake and what he has accomplished in life. He loved getting to hear of all the amazing things Jake has been doing, listening about his grandchildren and hearing how Jon was.
David “Swede” had his heart and soul into his local bar, Lake Dale Ale. Now this isn’t just any bar, this was his family and friends. From helping Amanda unload bread in the morning, to smoking meat, cooking random but amazing dishes, making everyone feel welcome and to sitting in his same spot everyday watching the cooking channel (of course telling the TV they weren’t doing it right), eating the yellow popcorn first, David “Swede”, had so much love for this place and they will forever be family.
Private Cremation entrusted to Sheets Funeral Home & Cremation Services, in Lowell. A celebration of life will be held on Friday, December 1st at Lake Dale Ale (Lowell, IN) from 6-10 PM.
