Obituary: Michael Petersen

Michael Petersen 1954 ~ 2005 I passed away on November 22, 2005, at the age of 51, and returned to my Heavenly Father after a wonderful life here on earth. I was born on August 10, 1954 to Jay Allen and Nancy Ann Jensen Petersen who I love very much. I married my high school sweetheart Ann Nuttall, (The most caring person I have ever known), on May 18, 1973 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. I graduated from Brighton High in 1972 and tried to serve faithfully in the LDS Church. I was employed by the LDS Church, working in the Family History Department since 1973. I loved to learn and help others. I tried my best to be a good husband, father, grandfather and friend. I loved to spend time with my family. I loved to laugh and ride my motorcycle. I had a special love for children and animals. Life, at times, was very hard and painful, but with a lot of love and caring, I learned what was important. It is hard to leave you. But I will be waiting and watching for each of you. I am survived by my eternal companion, Ann; four children, Rachel (Shawn) Wright, Benjamin Michael (Karen), Camille (Gene) Buell, and Laura; ten beautiful grandchildren; my Parents Jay and Nancy; brothers and sisters; Kathy (Ray), Steven (Stacey), Douglas (Cathy), Robyn (Mark), Jill (Rusty), David (Laurie), John (Tammy), Jamie (Jared), Brett (Annie), (Preceded in death by a brother, Scott) and many other beloved family members and friends.
