Larry Eugene Peterson

Larry Eugene Peterson, 69, of Connersville, Indiana, passed away at his home on Friday, February 9, 2018, from complications following surgery four days earlier. He was born on May 10, 1948, in Connersville, to Dale Peterson and Norma Jean Fish.

Larry graduated from CHS in 1966. He worked as a lineman for General Telephone and in the Tool Room at D & M in Connersville; several contractors in Florida; and traveled the United States delivering motor homes. A true nomad, he travelled extensively and lived in Alaska and Florida for many years; calling Florida his true home. He dearly loved spending time with his children and grandchildren. Larry had a great interest in history and space exploration; researching both extensively. He was devoted to his “little” brother, Bob Powell, who he raised after their mother died. A Harley rider at heart, he shared his passion and many rides with his brother and his cousin, Keith Simpson.

Larry will be greatly missed by his loving family which includes his two sons, Sgt. 1st Class Keith (Kim) Peterson, of Fort Sill, OK, and Kyle (Jeanie) Peterson, of Hamilton, OH; his daughter, Mari Peterson, of Hamilton OH; three grandsons, Zachary Staton, Seth Westerfield, and Colton Peterson; three granddaughters, Chelsi Peterson, Jasmine and Annabel Peterson; and brother, Bob (Tammy) Powell, of Connersville. He is preceded in death by his parents, and a daughter, Jodie Peterson.
