Steven Peterson


Steven (Steve) Curtis Peterson received his wings on May 17, 2021, peacefully on the family farm.

Steve was born on March 20, 1955 in Hollywood, CA and was raised by Shirley and John Peterson. He graduated from Pasco High School in 1974, where he was an all-star athlete excelling in many sports including basketball, track, and baseball and where he met a beautiful cheerleader and homecoming princess who became the love of his life, Susie.

Steve lived most of his life in Pasco working on the family farm. His passion for farming started early in life while farming with his parents and becoming an officer in the Future Farmers of America (FFA) as a young man. But the job he most enjoyed was being a father (pops), grandfather (grampy) and a beloved friend to nearly everyone he met.

Being the ultimate thrill seeker that he was, Steve loved riding motorcycles, water skiing, knee boarding, zip lining, gambling, fishing, working on his cars, golfing, travelling and most of all flying high in the sky on his hang glider and ultralight.

Steve loved entertaining and being around people, the family and friends BBQ on Peterson Farms went on for 15 amazing years every year over boat race weekend.

Steve is preceded in death by his mother, Shirley and brother David.

Steve is survived by his high school sweetheart and heartbroken wife, Susie, father, John, children, Shawn (wife Elizabeth), Sheldon and Shannon, siblings, Mike, Roberta, Debbie and Johnny, five grandchildren, one great grandson and multiple nieces and nephews and their families.

A celebration of Steve’s life will be held on Friday, May 28, 2021, at Einan’s at Sunset, 915 Bypass Highway, Richland, WA 99352 at 2pm.

Flowers or other contributions in Steve’s honor can be sent to Einan’s at Sunset.

  • Our hearts ache for your family. Steve was a great friend. He had a heart of gold and was just fun to be around. Carl always came home with a great story after a fishing adventure with Steve.
    He was so proud of his family. His eyes just lit up when he spoke of the kids and Susie. Steve will be sorely missed as a Husband, Father and Friend.

  • Sending all my love. Heartbroken I won’t be able to see him again. I’m so glad we made that trip 6 years ago, and so sad we never made it down again. You always think you have more time than you do. I’m grateful for FB; that he knew what my boys looked like and were up to. ❤️

  • Susie, this loss has left all of us heartbroken for you. We all knew what Steve meant to you and being without him will change your world. Don’t be afraid to cry. Most of all don’t apologize for crying. His loss will never lessen the love you had. I love you and grieve with you. You are my beloved sister and I will alway be there for you. Believe me when I say “I got your back” because you know all to well that it’s the truth. All my love to you my sister. Cindy
