December 9, 1940 - October 26, 2018
Bobby LaRue “Pete” Peterson was born on December 9, 1940 in Shreveport, La to Edgar and Florence Peterson. He was raised in Rocky Mount, Louisiana. Pete passed away peacefully in his sleep on Friday, October 26, 2018 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s.
He was preceded in death by his parents Edgar and Florence and siblings; George, Walter, John, Charles, Patricia, Myrtle and Tommy. Pete is survived by his wife, Sue; brother, Howard (Shera); children, Darren, Bart (Kym), Holly (Brian); grandchildren, Brandy (Paul), Debra (George), Crysten (Justin), Boo, Joshua (Travis), Randy (Claire), Lora, Hollie, Britani (Cody), Jessica, Ashlee, Kaylea; great grandchildren, Zach, MacKenzie, Sydney, Jenna, Mia, Zachary, Kynzie, Karsen and many other friends and family.
Pete was an avid hunter that loved his New Orleans Saints and never met a stranger. He leaves behind a huge legacy and shoes that can never be filled. To him blood meant nothing and he loved all of his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren equally as if they came from his blood.
Love is…knowing you’ll be loved until the end of time.
A celebration of his life will take place on Tuesday, October 30, from 2:00 to 5:00 pm at Mansfield Road Baptist Church in Keithville, Louisiana.
