Michael Obert Wedin was born August 29, 1965 in Hibbing MN to Orville and Donna (DeJarlais) Wedin. He graduated from Cherry High School. He spent years as a fire fighter and a first responder for the Kinney Great Scott Volunteer Fire Department. Michael was a musician who loved to have jam sessions with his friends and family. He poured his heart and soul into his business at the “Wooden Table”

Michael enjoyed going to “the shack”. He was a very generous man and loved to help others doing charity rides, collecting donations and giving in any way he could. If you needed a nickel, he’d give you a dime. He had a wonderful sense of humor and many fell victim to his pranks.

He was incredibly caring, a family man and devoted father. He will be deeply missed by his family and friends who knew him.

He is survived by his children, Logan Wedin and Jessica Lantz (Jeff); significant other, Monica Hill; siblings, Chris Luukkonen and Theresa (Leo) Rautio; granddaughter, Rowan; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family and friends

He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Sandy Dickson; infant daughter, Jackie; and numerous close friends.

    Truly sorry for your loss. Didn’t know Mike well enough, but always found him to be a very genuine, quietly kind, seemingly shy and humble fellow. Always enjoyed watching and listening to him play music, especially when sister Chris sang with the group. With Tweety tending bar, Mike & Chris on stage, and the Wooden Table rockin’, life didn’t get much better than that. Mike will be missed but never forgotten. Sincere regards to Mike’s entire family and friends. Life’s short. Make the most of what’s left of yours. ‘Cheers’ to Mile and all the lives he touched.

    Got to know Mike for many years now at the Table.
    He would stop in Virginia and visit and we’d talk about our fire and ems experiences. Mike and the staff were kind enough to send condolences when my father passed, caring people. Mike was always happy to see you. We’ll miss him.
