He truly enjoyed life to its fullest. He was an avid golfer, fisherman, and hunter. However, his greatest joy was being a father to his children. Friends and family alike knew him as a true man of his word. He could always bring a smile to those who needed it the most.
Survived by his siblings: Steve (Judy) Peterson, Marcene (Danny) O'Brien, Cindy(Kim) Blanchard, Alan (Susan) Peterson, Jerry (Nadine) Peterson, and was proceeded in death by his mother, father, and nephew Ross Blanchard. "Papa Petes" words to live by were "square up" and "get your mind right."
Services will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10, 2011, at Caldwell Raddatz Funeral Home, 8201 Hickman Rd., Urbandale.
