ERIC DAVID PETERSON
February 9, 1970 – March 25, 2022
Eric David Peterson, age 52, passed away Friday, March 25th, 2022, at his residence. Eric was born in Racine on February 9th, 1970, son of the late Leonard and Joan (nee: Andersen) Peterson and had been a lifelong resident. Eric was a proud graduate of Wm. Horlick High School “Class of 1988” and attended classes at Gateway Technical College. He was most recently employed as a line lead at Poclain Hydraulics, although his heart always remained with his first job working with his brother at John H. Batten Field. During his free time, he enjoyed bowling, watching the Packers, playing video games and being a smart ass. Eric’s greatest joy came from spending time with his family. Eric will be dearly missed by his son, Kyle Peterson; his sister Heather (Michael) Schroeder; his niece, Shanah Peterson-Boye; his great-nieces, Zola Peterson, Natharia and Charlize Boye; his furbabies, Zippy and Brutus; many cousins and friends. In addition to his parents, Eric was also preceded in death by his brothers, John and Lenny, and his sister, Terri. A celebration of Eric’s Life will be held at Maresh-Meredith & Acklam Funeral Home on Saturday, April 9th, 2022. Visitation will be 10-11AM with a service to follow. In lieu of flowers, memorials to the family have been suggested.
