Born Aug. 12, 1919, in Waukokee Township, Fillmore County, the son of Henry A. and Cora Amanda (Nelson) Peterson. He attended a Waukokee country school and then worked on the family farm.

A licensed boiler engineer, he worked in that capacity for the Preston Creamery for 10 years, for the Spring Valley Creamery for nine years, at Rochester State Hospital from 1978 to 1985, and then for the Preston-Fountain school district until 1992. From 1992 until last year, he mowed grass at cemeteries. Mr. Peterson was a member of Christ Lutheran Church and enjoyed hunting, fishing and gardening. Survivors include his wife; five daughters, Janice Peterson of Trempealeau, Wis., Karen (Dean) Aarre of Stockton, Barbara Hampel of St. Charles, and Christine Olson and Susan (Blaise) Hager, both of Preston; nine grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and a sister, Florence Foss of Preston.
