Glenn Roger Peterson
 
(Tuesday - November 23, 2021) - Glenn Roger Peterson, age 81, of Norway, passed away surrounded by his family on Monday, November 22, at Dickinson County Memorial Hospital.

Glenn was born January 4, 1940 in Norway, the son of the late Lawrence “Happy” and Theresa (Cologna) Peterson. He married Patricia Bonner on September 18, 1965 in St. Mary’s Church in Norway.

Glenn owned and operated Peterson Welding, a family business, in Norway since taking over ownership from his father in 1977. He remained involved with the business with his sons until his death. Being able to work alongside of his two sons was his greatest enjoyment in life.

In 1987 he and his wife built the Dairy Queen in Norway, which they owned and operated for 27 years.

While Glenn wasn’t working, he was with his family at camp, known as “Camp Carney” in the early years and “The Hemlock Lodge” in later years.

Hunting season was always the family vacation. Glenn loved hunting and he was the first one sitting in his blind in the morning. He also enjoyed fishing and trapping. Glenn believed in planting trees every year and planted hundreds over his lifetime.

Glenn is survived by his wife of 56 years Patricia; sons Roger (Rhonda) Peterson and Andrew Peterson; grandsons Angelo and Julio Peterson; brother Bertil (Donna) Peterson; nephews Chris (Cindy) Peterson, Michael Hynds, Dan (Melissa) Hynds, Robert (Michelle) Bonner and Ron (Jacki) Bonner; a niece Monica Hynds; brother-in-law Robert (Mary) Bonner; sister-in-law Barbara (Phil) Keen; several great nieces and nephews; and his beloved dog, Jewel.

He was preceded in death by his parents; sister Dolores Hynds and nephew John Peterson.

In accordance with Glenn’s wishes, private family funeral services will be held at a later date.

Interment will be held at the Norway Township Cemetery.

Family would like to Thank the staff at Dickinson Co. Healthcare and Dickinson Home Health for the excellent care Glenn received.
