Ronald Scott Peterson

Obituary Condolences

WOODSTOCK – Ronald Scott Peterson, born 60 years ago in Chicago, died Friday, Feb. 1, 2013, in Woodstock.
He grew up in Edison Park, graduated from Saint Juliana in 1966, Notre Dame High School in 1970, and Washburn Trade School in 1974, becoming an IBEW #134 electrician.
Ron inspired others with his belief that every dream can be realized. He owned his own electrical company, concrete company, built and sold homes and bought Oney's Tree Farm. He ran circles around the ordinary man, and his wife accused him of building business plans in his sleep.
Ron enjoyed fishing, photography, gold panning, gemstone exploration, and his family and friends will miss his devilish sense of humor and big smile.
Ron is survived by Dawn, his wife of 39 years; his son, Scott (Christina) of Woodstock; his daughter, Michelle (Christopher Klein) of Milwaukee, Wis.; three grandchildren; siblings, David (Lisa) Peterson and Sandy (Larry) McGurk; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Ron was preceded in death by his parents, Leonard Peterson and Elaine Uszler-Peterson.
The family would like to thank the Woodstock Hospice Center for their compassion and care.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to University of Chicago Head and Neck Cancer Research, 5841 S. Maryland Ave. MC 1035, Chicago, IL 60637.
The visitation will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 4, at Querhammer & Flagg Funeral Home, 500 W. Terra Cotta Ave., Crystal Lake. The visitation will continue Tuesday, Feb. 5, from 9:30 a.m. until the 10:30 a.m. funeral Mass celebration at Saint Mary Catholic Church, 312 Lincoln Ave., Woodstock. Interment will follow in Acacia Park Cemetery in Norridge.
