Arlo Peterson

Arlo Myron Peterson, age 87 of Leonardville, passed away Tuesday, June 2, 2020 at the Good Shepherd Hospice House. He was born on August 28, 1932 on a farm northeast of Leonardville to Paul John “Sidney “and Senora Josephine (Johnson) Peterson. He graduated from Randolph High School in 1950. Arlo married Wava Colleen Adams on May 5, 1957 at the Episcopal Church in Clay Center. They celebrated 61 wonderful years. Arlo was a patient, caring and steadfast caregiver to Wava in her later years. She preceded him in death on October 7, 2018. They farmed several farms in the area, but lived just short of 50 years on a farm west of Leonardville, on Highway 82. Another important occupation that he had was as a bus driver for USD #378. He was a lifetime member of the Walsburg Lutheran Church and was a wonderful parent, a terrific father-in-law, a loving grandfather, a trusted uncle and friend to many others. Arlo is survived by his son Dallas Peterson and wife Susan of Manhattan, KS; three grandchildren, Mallory (Erik) of Manhattan, Garrett (Kelsey) of Manhattan and Andrea (Matthew) of Washington, D.C. and numerous nephews and nieces. In addition to his wife, he is preceded in death by his parents; his sister, Clarine Burkman; three sisters-in-law Lois Asp, Lula Mae Shreefer, Darlene Adams and four brothers-in-law Roland “Johnny” Burkman, Orville Asp, Richard “Dick” Schreefer and Henry “Hank” Adams.
