Judd G. Peterson


Judd George Peterson, age 77, of Merrifield, MN, passed away at his home on November 26, 2019.

Judd was born in Brainerd, MN to George and Freda (Besser) Peterson on January 12, 1942. He was united in marriage to Kaye Hill on August 3, 1963 at St. Francis Catholic Church in Brainerd.

Their children, Kim and Derek, were born in 1964 and 1969 and the family moved to Glenwood, MN where Judd set up his chiropractic practices in both Glenwood and Alexandria. In 2004, he and Kaye retired to his hometown of Brainerd where he loved being a member of the lake’s community.

He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and golfing. Nothing was rushed with Judd; he was meticulous and methodical -- taking his time to finish perfect products working in his shop. He enjoyed watching old westerns and MN sports teams but above all, Judd cherished his family and the time they spent at the lake.

Judd is survived by Kaye, his wife of 56 years; his children, Kim (John) Mullon, and Derek (Michelle) Peterson; and his grandchildren, Meghan, Cara, Patrick. Brady, Madison, Macy, and Judd Roy; his sister, Karen (Dale) Thorson; his niece Ann (Corey) Pearson; his nephew, Jon (Danielle) Thorson: and his sister-in-law, Dawn Hill.

He was preceded in death by his parents, George and Freda; and parents-in-law, Bonnie and Howie Hill.

Mass of Christian burial will take place at 10:30 am on Saturday, November 30, 2019 at Immaculate Heart Catholic Church in Crosslake, MN, with a visitation one hour prior to the service at the church. Burial will take place at Evergreen Cemetery in the spring of 2020. Arrangements with Nelson-Doran Funeral Home in Brainerd.
