|Lloyd T. Petersen, 84, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family on January 14th, 2013 at his home in Anamosa, after an extended illness. Keeping with Lloyd's wishes for cremation, a private family gathering will be held at a later date. Entrusted with the arrangement is Cedar Memorial Park Funeral Home.
Lloyd is survived by his wife Betty, son Brad (Janet) of North Liberty; daughter Kathy Larrimore of Anamosa; six grandchildren; David, Kim, Mark, Kristen, Robert, and Jack; seven great grandchildren, Kourtney, Mayah, Dominic, Haley, Trevor, Cameron, and eight day old Lilly Jean; one sister, Lorraine Harwig; two brothers, Paul and Richard. He was preceded in death by his parents, sister Velma June Collins; two brothers Fred and Douglas; and a son-in-law Rick Larrimore.
Lloyd T. Petersen was born April 24, 1928 to Nellie and Dewey Petersen in Martelle, Iowa. He married Betty Kernen on July 1, 1950 and they lived in Monticello, Stanwood and Wyoming before settling in Anamosa.
Lloyd served in the Army during the Korean War and was very proud of the time he served his country. He loved sharing stories of his time in the military with his children and grandchildren. Lloyd worked for Energy in Monticello, Stamos Furniture in Tipton, and then was very proud to work for the Anamosa Reformatory as a correctional officer until his retirement. When Lloyd had free time, you could bet he was looking for the perfect fishing hole.
