Obituary for Kyle R Peterson

Kyle Raymond Peterson Jr. passed on April 25th, 2019 at the grand age of 98.
He was married to Bettie Louise (Haroff) Peterson (deceased February 19, 2011). They were married for 62 beautiful years. He is survived by three sons, Kyle III (Rebecca) and their children Anna (Brad, fiancée) and Andrew; Eric (Mary) and their children Petey (Nichole) and Ben; Lyndon (Karla Hernandez) and his children Cameron (Amanda), their children Theo and Hayden, and Samantha Peterson McClelland (Cody) and their child Jack. He is also survived by his sister, Charlotte (Dale) Luke, and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Kyle Raymond and Helen (Christian) Peterson, wife, Bettie, and three siblings, Donald (Nancy) Peterson, Madge (John) Newcomb, and Helen (Don) Green.
Kyle was a WWII veteran and received his masters from Iowa State University in agronomy. He worked his whole career for the Iowa State Extension Service. Bettie and Kyle started raising their children in Denison, Iowa and then lived in Sioux City for most of their marriage. He loved his St. Louis Cardinals and Iowa State Cyclones. Kyle was wonderful husband to Bettie and their relationship was a blessing and guidance for us all.
Kyle has been described by his family as a loving, caring, patient, and giving man. He was a role model to his family and extended family in showing hard work, helping your neighbor, and his no-complaints attitude. He was a good dancer and loved the good old tunes. He was a spiritual man and was involved with Grace United Methodist Church for most of his adult life. That is where his voice was heard in his beautiful singing with the church choir.
We were lucky to have Dad/Grandpa with us for so many years. It seems not enough to acknowledge that he has passed based on how meaningful his presence was. It is the memory of his presence that causes us to smile and remember how his love and respect for family distinguished him.
In lieu of flowers, donation can be made to the Iowa Society of the Blind and Grace United Methodist Church in Sioux City, IA.
Visitation will be at Christy-Smith Funeral home Morningside Chapel on Saturday June 8th from 9:00 to 11:00 am, where a time of sharing will begin at 10:30 am. Interment will follow at Memorial Park Cemetery in Sioux City, Iowa.
