Jeffery “Petey” Scott Peterson, age 62, passed away Monday, November 14, 2022, surrounded by
family. He was born October 30, 1960, in Black River Falls, WI. He was the son of Larry Peterson and
Bernadean (Mayer) Peterson.
Jeff lived his entire life in the Hatfield/ Black River Falls area. During his high school years he played
baseball, basketball, and football. Whether watching or participating he enjoyed sports- playing
countless games of slow pitch, fast pitch, horse shoes, and shuffle board. He was an avid fan of all things
Packers, Badgers, and Brewers. He looked forward each year to the gun deer hunting in the Fall, ice
fishing in the Winter, and canoeing, camping, and fishing in the Summer. Jeff enjoyed travelling,
spending time with family and friends, and giving people a “hard time”. He was quite the jokester.
He is survived by his loving wife of 45 years, Sharon (Dvorak) Peterson; sons, Guerra Peterson of
LaCressent, MN and Lucas (Brickie) Peterson, of Fairbanks, Alaska; mother, Bernadean Peterson;
brother, Michael Peterson; sister, Theresa (Allan) Hawley; brother- in- law, Tim Dvorak; grandchildren,

in- law, David Dvorak.
