John Kallander, age 64, died unexpectedly and peacefully in his home in Moorhead, MN, on Tuesday, October 20, 2020.
John Edwin Kallander, the son of Edwin and Maxine (Anderson) Kallander, was born in Fargo, ND, on June 27, 1956. He grew up and received his education in Moorhead, where he graduated from high school in 1974, and then graduated with an Associates Degree from Minnesota State Community and Technical College.
