Pete was born on May 27, 1939 in Malta, MT to John and Marie (Hendrickson) Peterson. Raised in Auburn, WA, he graduated Auburn High School, going on to work in a local furniture store and his father’s garage. He later worked for Boeing, building aircrafts.

Pete was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He loved spending time with his family, sharing his hobbies like fishing, collecting old toys, and in the 1990’s Beanie Baby “hunting” with his daughter Amanda.

When not enjoying his beloved family, he found time for his other passion, reading.
