Harold L. Peterson Obituary
1920 ~ 2013
Harold LeRoy Peterson, age 93, passed away February 26, 2013 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Harold was born January 27, 1920 in Heber City, Utah to Hugh W. and Alene Strong Peterson. He married Donna Andrew on August 18, 1939 in Provo, Utah. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Donna passed away in 1978. Harold married Rebecca Patton Bringhurst on October 12, 1979. Harold was raised in Provo, Utah, and attended Provo High School and Brigham Young University. He served his country during WWII in the U.S. Navy as a medic. His life career began in sales and marketing, eventually settling in Salt Lake City. He successfully continued in that field for over 40 years before retiring in 1983. He enjoyed reading, traveling, spending time with family, and gardening, his yard being the envy of many of his neighbors. He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints where he served faithfully in many capacities, including as a missionary with his wife Beckie at the Idaho Falls Temple Visitors Center. Service was very important to him, and serving his family was his life. He will be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, friend and neighbor.
