DEER GROVE – A GoFundMe account was created to aid the family of the 48-year-old Deer Grove man who was electrocuted last week.

Shannon John Pierceson was electrocuted around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday while working on an irrigator in a field near the intersection of Buell and Bell roads in Deer Grove, and was pronounced dead at CGH Medical Center.

Originally from Tampico, he was an electrician who owned and operated Cylinders Plus-CNC Plasma Cutouts at 1777 Roscoe Road in Deer Grove, an agricultural services company that does machine work, welding, hydraulics repair, and cylinder work.

He also ran Pierceson Trucking, which has been in his family about 50 years.
