Obituary

Gerald R. Peterson, 70, of Pound, went to join his Lord and Savior Monday, January 8, 2018, at Bay Area Medical Center after a five year journey with cancer. He was born July 16, 1947 in Marinette to Harold and Selma Peterson, Sr.
Gerald spent all of his life in this area, residing on the Peterson family farm in the Town of Pound.

He attended Coleman High School. In his early years he hauled milk and logged but the majority of his life was dedicated to his dairy herd on the farm. Gerald was known as a generous person, always willing to help anyone who came to the farm. He loved going to tractor pulls, county fairs, deer hunting and most of all, TALKING to people. He was a longtime member of St. Matthew Ev. Lutheran Church W7192 Highway 64 Pound, WI 54161

Surviving are one son, Nicholas (Julie) Peterson of Green Bay; two grandsons, Luke and Isaac Peterson; his brothers and sisters, Jeanne (David) Bray of Peshtigo, Diana Anderson of Butler, Wis., Harold (Mary) Peterson, Jr. of Suamico, Wis. and Roger (Debra) Peterson of Green Bay; and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents and a sister, Marlene Peterson.

The family would like to thank all those who helped drive Jerry to appointments and take care of projects on the farm. We are also grateful for all the hard working medical staff at Bay Area Medical Center in Marinette. You are all special people and may God bless you and the work you do.
