William Bruce Peterson, age 87, passed away on Friday, December 18, 2020, at Littleton Hospital in Littleton, CO.

He was born December 12, 1933, in rural Zumbrota, MN, to Olaf and Gladys Peterson. Bill was a 1952 graduate of Zumbrota High School, attended Luther College for a year then enlisted in the army from 1953 to 1957.

Bill's love of travel led him to the fashion industry. For 60 years Bill loved working as a sales representative until he retired at age 82. In retirement, Bill enjoyed morning coffee with "the boys", Faith in the Lord, and spirited debate with his kids. Most of all, he cherished being around his grandkids.

Bill is survived by his brother, Greg, his children Olav, Kelley and Todd, and 6 grandchildren.

Bill's family will be holding a Celebration of Life Service in the summer of 2021, once it will be safe for friends and family to attend without a mask.
