Petersen, Dennis*  
Dennis Alfred Petersen August 20, 1942 - April 2, 2016 Dennis Alfred Petersen was born August 20, 1942 in Kellogg, Idaho and died April 2, 2016, at Everett, Washington. Denny was the eldest son of A.B. (Pete) Petersen and Ruth Petersen. He spent his childhood in Yellow Pine, Idaho where Dad worked at the nearby Stibnite Mine. In 1953, after the mine closed, the family moved to Emmett, Idaho, to live in an easier winter climate. Denny attended Emmett Jr. and Sr. High Schools but found student life too tame and was encouraged to join the U.S. Navy. He served from 1959 to 1963 and was stationed aboard the aircraft carrier, USS Bon Homme Richard as a radar technician. After discharge, Denny worked a variety of construction and mining jobs. This experience led to a career as an Ironworker, which suited his adventurous nature. In 1967 he married Sharon Parks and they made their first home in Emmett. Sharon and Denny had two children, Chris and Deni Lyn. They subsequently lived in Boise and Lacey, Wash. They returned to Boise and in 1984 were divorced. He moved to the Seattle area to continue his work in construction. Denny met Carol Novak and they were married in 1992. He retired from Ironworkers Union Local 86 and he and Carol enjoyed the country life outside Snohomish, Washington. He took pride and pleasure in their home and yard, helping Carol with arts and crafts projects and building several houses for the benefit of Carol's chickens. Their Pug dog "Libby" will sure miss her "dad." Denny is survived by his wife Carol, and step-daughters; Connie (Brian) Senyitko and granddaughters Hayley and Emily of Marysville; Christie (Kyle) Ward of Lake Stevens; son Chris Petersen (Christie) and grandchildren Hailey and Hayden of Emmett; daughter Deni Lyn Lequerica and grandchildren Kimber, K.C. and Kaden of Boise; sister-in-law Sandy Petersen of Modesto, Ca. and brother Nick (Mona) of Emmett. Denny was proceeded in death by his father, Pete in 1987, mother Ruth in 1996 and brother John in 2013. No services will be held, Denny wanted his ashes to be spread near his home in Washington. Feel free to donate to a favorite charity or not, either way would be OK with him, just remember Denny with a smile.
