We sing quite often at Bethel and I don't think I realized Jerry was there. I remember Jerry at the creamery. We would buy buttermilk from him for our orphan piglets! Any piglets that looked like they would not survive came to our house and my mom nursed them back to health. Oh my, that buttermilk smelled SO good when dad first brought it home! Then a few days later when I had to lean way into the 50 gallon barrel to get the last of it out, the smell was not SO good. Hahaha! May God hold you close during this difficult time.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time. Both your Dad and Mom were wonderful people. I always enjoyed seeing them when we were still in Williston. Now they are together once again.

Our deepest sympathy on the passing of your beloved father. He lived an amazing life, and leaves behind a wonderful legacy. It is also noted that he remained active in the Boy Scout Movement, as an adult. Achieving Eagle Scout Rank is an amazing accomplishment, which shows his determination and is not obtained my many.
Rest in Peace, God Speed. You were an honorable man, a patriot. You will be greatly missed by many.

Dear Peterson Family, Your parents were such great friends with Denley and Mary Lois for many years. They shared a lot of great times together. We remember seeing your Dad driving by our house in his black convertible. Sorry for your loss.

My sympathy to the family. Jerry was a boy scout leader along with Phil Stenehjem when I grew up. Two more patient and respected men did not exist as examples for us. We are better for having him in our lives. Remember his quiet ways with a smile.

To Peterson Family, passing on my condolences to all in the passing of Jerry. My Dad Don was a long time employee of Peterson’s Creamery, I have great memories of being around the creamery and seeing a lot of pranks and water fights amongst the employee, with Jerry being right in the middle of it all. He loved to talk about those days whenever I would see him. Thoughts and prayers to all at this difficult time.
