Gary David Peterson passed away after a short battle with cancer on May 19, 2023, at the home he built for his beautiful bride of 60 years. He was the second of five children born to storekeepers and farmers, Reuben and Lois (Jackson) Peterson of Cloverland, Wisconsin. After Warner, Gary was born on August 22, 1942, followed by Nancy, Joe, and Mark. The work was hard, but Gary said growing up on the farm was a great start to his 80 happy years of life.

Gary earned $6 a day at his first job driving milk truck for Alfred Levin, but only worked a month before he was fired. It was haying time and he was needed on the farm, so his father spilled the beans that he was only 15 and did not have a driver’s license yet.
