Obituary for Robert Sherwood "Bob" Peterson

Peterson, Robert Sherwood. Robert Peterson passed away peacefully at 91 years of age on 9/6/2018 in Minneapolis. Bob was born on a farm in Pettibone, North Dakota on May 21, 1927 to Alma Urgine Thorsness and John G. Peterson. He joined the US Navy in August of 1944 at 17 years old and served as an electrician's mate in the Pacific theatre, taking a role as a military policeman in Shanghai after the bombing of Japan. After separation from the service in August of 1946, Bob studied refrigeration at Dunwoody institute in Minneapolis, and married high school sweetheart Helen Kourajian on May 25, 1947. Bob started Ideal Equipment and Refrigeration Company in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, and also sold Mercury outboards and Crosby boats, beginning his lifelong love of boating. After selling Ideal, Bob worked at increasing levels of responsibility for companies in the Twin Cities. Living a life of dedication to his beloved wife of 71 years, Helen and the activities of his three sons, Bob purchased a home in Tonka Bay, moving to Lake Minnetonka in 1963. When the boys left home, Bob and Helen devoted vacation time to travel. When Bob retired at 55, in 1982, they began wintering in Mesa, Arizona, before returning full time to the Twin Cities in 2013 to be near their family. Bob was preceded in death by his parents and brother Canton, and is survived by wife Helen, and their three sons Michael (Georgina), David (Linda) and Daniel (Nan) and grandchildren Angela (Areyan) Hashemi-Rad, Ann, Jannette, Elizabeth (Chris) Skilbeck, Benjamin (Rachel,) Tessa (Adam) Feichtinger, and Nicholas (Carrie,) and four great-grandchildren Nadiya Hashemi-Rad, Charlotte and Thomas Skilbeck, and Chase Peterson.
