Mason worked several years at Aluma in Bancroft. He was a Welding Lead at the time of his death and had a key role in leading the roll out of robotic welding at Aluma. He enjoyed being able to apply his love for computers and looked forward to growing his technical skills.

Mason's interests were sports, listening to music, gaming, and spending time with his friends and family.

He is survived by his parents, David and Kar of Algona; brothers, Satchel (Kaitlynn) Cederwall of Britt, and Serik Cederwall of Algona; a sister, Payton Cederwall of Algona; a niece Victoria Cederwall of Britt; his grandparents; and many cousins and other relatives.

"The Cederwall kids would use the library at the Algona High School when I worked there. They were the most respectful, focused, comfortable, mature acting kids ever. My heart breaks for the family. All my sympathy to the Cederwall family. "

John Leetch wrote on Jul 17, 2019:

"When Mason was a very small child living in the Des Moines, IA area, him and his brother, Satchel, used have their toys strewn all over the bedroom. Kar would say 'Mason and Satchel, you need to pick up your toys'. Mason would feverishly go to work getting the toys picked up like he was he was in a race with Satchel. The competitiveness was so apparent at a very early age and it was easy to see that he wanted to do the job and please his mom. He is still here so long as his memories exist. He is in your embrace Dave and Kar, hold on tightly to him. He accomplished many wonderful things in his lifetime because of your love and help."

"I never had the Joy of meeting Mason. However, I felt I knew him through his GrandMother, Carolyn, my Sister. She would tell me stories of his visits with her and Wally. His constant 'jabber', and Wally engaging him with sincere intensity. About walking him home from playtime. She delighted in telling the story of their trip to California last year. We laughed and laughed at his shenanigans. She couldn't say enough about how kind and gentle he was. His quick wit and joy of learning and so much more. My deep thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this most difficult time. I send my condolences to you for myself and my Children, Lisa Van Horn, Tresa Watson, Tedd Gagen and Joseph Bathalter, III. Aunt Joyce"

Curt and Sam Geyer"

"Dave and Kar- I don't even know what to say. Mason was such a nice guy. He was always smiling and never complained once at work. He was liked by so many people here at Aluma and out in the public. We are all thinking of your family Dave at work and just know that all of us here at Aluma are ready to help you and your family with anything you all would need. Fly high Mason! Until we meet again."
