Severin O. Peterson Jr. Obituary

August 14, 1941 - November 14, 2016

Papa's life had two book ends: Faith and Family! There was a whole book of craziness in between to include eight kids, camping, hard work, gardening, Sequoia Big Trees, stubbornness, prayer time, Glad Tidings, etc.

Born just under four months prior to Pearl Harbor on August 14, 1941 in Rockford, IL, his childhood as a Army Brat was non-stop moving from Japan to Germany and all over the United States. However, when his dad retired to Northern California, he put deep roots down. After salvation, his second best decision in life was marrying Peggy Joanne Long on August 28, 1965.

He made his great heavenly getaway on November 14, 2016.

He is survived by his wife Peggy J L Peterson; sisters Joan Smith and Karen Petersen; sons Bryn, Glen, Stephen, John, Paul, Joseph; daughters Lynn Hughes and Cristen Micu; grandsons John, Michael, Ethan and Evan ; and granddaughters Jaela, Ella, Eliza, Bryanna, Sophia and Margo.

A Celebration of Life get-together will be held Saturday, November 19, 2016 from 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. at the Church of Glad Tidings fellowship hall. Arrangements are under the direction of Holycross Memorial Services.
