John William Peterson passed away peacefully at 9:30 AM on December 5, 2019 in Frederick, Maryland.

John was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota on April 1,1932. He was the son of an immigrant railroad worker and became a noteworthy athlete as a hockey player and Golden Gloves boxer. John joined the United States Army in 1952 and served during the Korean War. He reached the rank of Sergeant in artillery and continued his service as a reservist until 1960.

John met his wife of 61 years, Jacquelyn Jean Graf, in Minneapolis while both worked for the Toro Company. They married in 1958 and had two sons together. John had a long career in automotive aftermarket sales, and spent the majority of his retirement years happily in San Diego, California.

John is survived by his wife, Jacquelyn, sons Jeffrey and Jay, and grandchildren Jacob and Elizabeth. He will also be remembered by his niece Chris Beaubien and her children Tammy Godfrey and Derek Gold.

No memorial Service is currently planned but a celebration of life will be announced after the New Year.
