Our beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend, Roger Peterson, passed away November 12, 2015, at Yakima, WA. Roger was born November 21, 1962, in Tonasket, Wash. He lived the last 20-plus years in Yakima.
People lovingly referred to Roger as “Rog” , “Dodge” or “Rog Buddy.” Roger was an orchardist by heart, a mechanic by trade, and his passions were motorcycling, music and the Seahawks. Roger loved his family and friends equally, almost as much as he loved apple pie.
Roger was preceded in death by his mother Margaret Peterson. He was survived by his parents Bill and Nina Peterson; wife Patricia Peterson; children Andrew Peterson, Milissa Farley, Kristie, Lucy and Eric (Jessica) Wade and 25 grandchildren; brothers Greg (Ayako) Peterson and Jeff (Adrienne) Peterson, several nephews and nieces, aunts, uncles and cousins and several brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law.
Viewing will be offered Wednesday, November 18, 2015 from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at Shaw & Sons Funeral Directors, 201 N. 2nd Street, Yakima WA 98901. Celebration of Life will follow immediately at 5:30 p.m., also at the funeral home.
