 Richard Peterson

Richard Peterson passed away September 20, 2023 at his home. He was born December 8, 1937 in Wayne County to Robert E. and Florence (Anderson) Peterson. He graduated from Pershing High School and attended Highland Park Junior College. He worked as a journeyman die maker and upon retirement worked part-time at Van Zwolls Market, then as the caretaker at Webberville United Methodist Church.
