Kenneth Lester Peterson


Salt Lake City, Utah—Our beloved father, grandfather and great-grandfather Kenneth Lester Peterson, passed away on April 3, 2021 at the age of 83.

Ken was born on May 18, 1937 in Tooele, Utah to Kenneth S. and Sara Ney Peterson.

He was a Navy Veteran, who enjoyed working, fishing and taking care of his bees and his beloved dog Froto. He ran a successful appliance and refrigeration repair business for over 40 years and had many loyal customers.

Ken is survived by his daughters Jennifer Lee, Rita Davis, Amy (Alan) Moore, and Carlene (Mike) Phillips, 7 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren.

Ken was preceded in death by his parents, his wife Carla (Bennion) Peterson, son Aaron James Peterson, brother, Barry James Peterson and granddaughter Tisha Jensen.

A Fisherman's Prayer…. I pray that I may live to fish until my dying day. And when it comes to my last cast, I then most humbly pray; when in the Lord's great landing net, and peacefully asleep, that in his mercy I be judged BIG ENOUGH TO KEEP.

A Funeral Mass will be held on Thursday, April 29th at St. Vincent De Paul Catholic Church, 1375 E. Spring Lane, SLC, at 11:00 a.m. with a reception to follow next door at Benvegnu Center.

He was a kind-hearted, honest, helpful, and cheerful man. I liked having him fix my appliances, just for the chance to enjoy visiting with him. God rest his soul.
