Robert Dale Peterson passed away on January 29, 2019, after his battle with cancer. He attended the Benson Country School and graduated from Lanesboro High School in 1948.
Robert is survived by his wife Lois (Lyngen) and they celebrated 69 years together. They were blessed with three children: Linda (Robert) Hamper, Larry W. (Debbie) Peterson, and Richard D. (best friend Joan) Peterson. They also have four grandchildren: Randi (John) Salter, Mark (Jodi) Donahue, Brian (Maureen) Peterson, and Dean (Jessica) Peterson, as well as six great-grandchildren. Robert also has one brother, Orvey (Darlene) Peterson and one sister, Nancy (Donald) Mickelson and nieces and nephews.
Robert lived his entire life in Lanesboro and made a living as a car salesman. He had many fun adventures with friends – RVing, elk hunting in Wyoming, and casinos, just to name a few.
There will be no service at this time and a celebration of his life will be held at his home at a later date.
The family would like to thank family, friends and the Heartland Hospice Care staff for his loving care.
