Wayne L. Peterson

March 29, 1932 - October 10, 2020 

On October 10, 2020, Wayne L. Peterson fulfilled his duties and went home. Wayne had no enemies, he loved and was loved. Wayne joined his parents, Lyle and Myrtle Peterson and daughter, Rebecca Sanders-Peterson. He awaits his wife of 68 years, Elizabeth Peterson; four children, Gary (Robin) Peterson; Roberta (Denny) Bowker; Randy (Lori) Peterson; Jay (Jolene) Peterson; 9 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren.

Wayne’s family growing up included sisters, Lois (Don) Huxford; Mavis (Wayne) Crinklaw and brother, Sonny (Violet) Salles.

If you knew Wayne – you knew he was better than he ever let on! Wayne led by example, the best he knew how, always trying to give someone else the recognition. 

Wayne had many accomplishments, which he would not want us to dwell on, but rather just know he made it home to await the love of his life, Elizabeth; and in time….his children.  He would rather have led by example and see you Live, Lead and Love One Another. Most of all, Wayne would want you to keep God in your heart, your life and your actions – have no enemies, love and allow yourself to be loved…..and oh, how Wayne was loved!

P.S. Superman needed a cape, our Dad – he didn’t!
