April 19, 1940 - November 6, 2019
Curtis Frederick Pelland was born on April 19th, 1940 in Littlefork, MN to Ira and Jennie Pelland. He passed away peacefully at the Littlefork Care Center Wednesday, November 6th, 2019. Curt was a loving husband, a dedicated father, and a proud grandfather and great-grandfather. He was a trusted advisor to all, a loyal brother and a helpful friend to anyone in need. The love for his family was evident through big hugs, warm smiles and laughter. He shared many moments of wit and wisdom along with a healthy dose of sarcasm with family and friends which left a lasting impression. His early work years were spent with his brothers logging in the woods as Pelland Logging. Over the past 28 years, he spent his days as the “PR man” at Pelland Welding, a small business he established with his son Scott in 1991. Curt enjoyed many conversations with his friends and customers over coffee and sweets. Curt’s hobbies included cars, racing and restoring his 1946 Ford pickup. He was a creative problem solver with engines, chainsaws and equipment, if Curt couldn’t fix it, no-one could. He took a lot of pride in his home in International Falls, MN, carefully maintaining the trees and lawn. He had a deep appreciation of wildlife and nature, especially watching the eagles by the river and the deer that wandered through his yard. His life’s legacy are his children, Scott & Sonja Pelland, Deborah Pelland and Brenda & Jeff Brunk, his grand-children Sarah & Patrick Lund, Phillip & Tonie Pelland, Justin Brunk, Jake & Melissa Bahnmiller, and Cierra Brunk, his great-grandchildren, Evelynn, Josephine & Ira Lund, Isabelle Bahnmiller, and Brysen Brunk. Curt is reunited with his wife Arlene, grand-daughter Melissa, and brothers, Gene & Larry Pelland. A gathering to celebrate his life will be held on Thursday, November 14th, 2019 with a visitation beginning at 10:00 am and service at 11:00 am, at Bethany Lutheran Church in Loman, MN. Curt will be laid to rest at the Riverside Cemetery in Loman with an interment ceremony after the service. A luncheon and time for fellowship will commence following the interment.
