Our family is sending our best thoughts and prayers to you. Dave and I have great memories of Uncle Pete, I think he was one of the few people who could keep Dave on his toes, :). His stories and great example will stick with me always!
Lots of great memories. Love to all of you. He will be missed by anyone who knew him.

I am forever connected to the Peterson family. My heart and prayers go out to the family at this time of loss. I have so many fond memories of Aaron and I'm grateful I can share them with my children.Memories of the cabin in Star Valley to family dinners of delicious home made pizza. I remember the good times.I appreciate the wisdom of this man. He had a strong loving way of giving guidance and recommending a path and then letting me make my own decisions for my family.There are many occasions I should have listened more closely. I will miss him and will think of him often. Sincerely and with love,
Kevin and Lisa Sorensen
He was the best at cutting hair when I was much younger. Still don't know how he did it with a cigarette and coffee always in his hand. :) So sorry for your loss.
We express our love and concern for you. You are special to us. We regret we couldn't make the viewing.
