Robert's obituary

Robert Allen Petersen

Born: September 16, 1948

Died: January 6, 2021

Robert Allen (Bob) Petersen passed away unexpectedly due to COVID related complications at the age of 72.

Robert is survived by the love of his life; his wife of almost 53 years, Judith (Andersen) and children, Lisa (Jim) Young, Donna (Levy) Luna, Debra Daley and Erica Mancuso; cherished grandchildren Kairee (Thomas), Anthony (Kelly), Jacob (Rachel), Corey, Jessica, Sky, Alyssa, Bobby, Taylor (Nico), Matthew, Ceilidh, Julia, Sam, Gina and Evan; adorable great grandchildren Cayden, Oliver and Bun-in-the-Oven Bennett and many special nieces, nephews and in-laws who he thought of as his own true brothers and sisters. He is preceded in death by his beloved parents Robert and Alma Petersen (Shanahan), Mother and Father in-law Leonard and Mary Andersen and brother-in-laws James Harrington and John (Guy) Moran.

Robert lived a life full of family and long-time close friendships. He had a passion for music and was an extremely talented guitar player and singer. Robert and Judy welcomed four wonderful daughters to their family whom blessed him with great joy through an abundance of grandchildren and great grandchildren. His children remember him as a loving father who taught them about unconditional love, the importance of family, and that true-love can stand the test of time through the love he had for their mother.

Due to COVID, a private viewing is planned for the immediate family but we are inviting all to attend an outdoor graveside service (social distancing and masks required). Those that wish to attend Robert’s final send-off can meet for a procession from Blake-Lamb Funeral home to his final resting place at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery. Details are as follows:
