Family Tribute


Michael Petersen loved his family, friends, and the game of golf. He enjoyed working alongside his friends at Ford Motor Company. Fridays you could find him on the golf course with his wife and the Dishaw’s. Michael loved a good joke, however corny it may have been. He was also an avid reader. He loved a cold dip in the pool and spending time in his backyard. Every February was spent in Cape Coral, Florida. Michael was happily married for 48 years and his children were his proudest accomplishment.​​​​​​​
