Lester W. "Ike" Peterson
December 29, 1942 - April 21, 2017
Lester William “Ike” Peterson, 74, of Adrian, died Friday, April 21, 2017, at his residence, On the Hill AFC Home. Born December 29, 1942, in Adrian, he was the son of the late Henry and Ethelle (Heckman) Peterson.
Ike was raised in Morenci, and has lived in several local group homes throughout his life. He loved tractors and wagons, and was very mechanically inclined. He was employed over 20 years by Goodwill Industries in Adrian. His disability in no way impeded him from his ability to tinker with equipment such as lawn mowers. He is remembered for his eager and helpful wit, and for his concern for others by always granting advice.
Surviving Ike are three brothers, Ronnie Peterson of Manitou Beach, Charles (Gretta) Peterson of Morenci, and Nelson (Tammy) Peterson of Bryan, OH; a sister, Doris Ann (Thomas) Norris of Tampa, FL; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by two of his brothers, Duane and Howard.
A graveside service for Lester will be held on Monday, April 24, 2017, at 2:00 p.m. at the Oak Grove Cemetery in Morenci. Pastor Darren Lemmon will preside. Arrangements were handled by the Eagle Funeral Home in Morenci.
Memorial contributions in honor of Ike can be directed to Goodwill Industries of Adrian.
