Dale Peterson

Dale Harlan Peterson passed away on Thursday, November 17, 2011, at the Northwood Deaconess Health Center. He was born May 6, 1934, at the Northwood Hospital to Kelly and Mamie (Draxton) Peterson. He was a life-long member of the West Union Lutheran Church where he was baptized, confirmed and served in several offices.

Dale attended Lind School #89 and graduated from Northwood High School in 1954. He attended Interstate Business College in Fargo, ND after which he worked as a bookkeeper for Krabbenhoft Chevrolet in Northwood from 1959-1969. He began full-time farming with his brother Kent in 1969 and retired in 2003. In spite of having polio as a teenager, he truly loved farming and his best days were spent on John Deere tractors. After suffering a brain tumor in June 2009, he was in and out of the Northwood Deaconess Health Center and was able to spend time at his farm home.

He is survived by his brothers Kent and Rodney (Gladyce) Peterson, Northwood, and his sister Audrey Bueide, Fargo. He was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, Ardell and Howard, and brother-in-law Jerry Bueide.

Dale was a very loving man to his family. His nieces and nephews and their children were special to him and all had a lot of fun riding in his John Deere Gator.
