Elmer LeRoy Peterson “Pete” passed away peacefully in his home on September 20, 2021. Elmer was born on April 10, 1939 in Crawford, Nebraska.
He served in the U.S Army right out of high school and worked for Salt Lake County.
He enjoyed raising rabbits and pigeons, but mostly loved riding his Harley Davidson and partying with friends.
Per Elmer’s wishes, there will be no funeral service and his family will spread his ashes in the Snake River.
Life Story Info
I never knew him well as we lived in different states, but I knew him as my uncle Sonny not Elmer or Pete. He was my mother’s brother and my uncle, I always in awe as a child of his beard, of his biker jacket and his smile. I will remember you for that and your generosity to my girl. RIP uncle Sonny and enjoy the reunion with the rest of the Peterson family. Cathy Jo
My grandma Judy East, was friends with Pete. I remember visiting him often and he was always very nice to me. I looked up to him, like a grandpa. Fond childhood memories. It’s been maybe 30years since I’ve seen him, and I don’t remember a whole about him, but I do remember his kind spirit, that had an impact on my life as a child. Glad to know he passed peacefully. Until we meet again, Pete.

My dad would come over on my days off and we’d enjoy a cup of coffee. I really miss our coffee time. I now realize just how close we really were. ❤️
