Vernon Peterson was born in Nov. 17, 1904, in Colby, son of Mr. and Mrs. Nels Peterson. The family later lived in Abbotsford, where he attended school.

Vernon was a marine radio operator on Great Lakes boats. After his retirement, he had a radio repair shop at his home. He was unmarried. 

Shortly after Christmas, he underwent surgery at a Madison hospital and the past three weeks was being cared for at his home where death occurred Sunday. 

Surviving him are his mother, Mrs. Susan Peterson, sister, Anna Marie, of Green Bay; two sisters, Mrs. Fred (Jessie) Johnson, of Withee; and Mrs. Neil Vater, of Owen; and one brother, Lee "Gerry," of Milwaukee.
