Mike Peterson

d. March 4, 2022

Michael “Mike” Peterson was born in September of 1956 in Bakersfield, California to Bob and JoAnn Peterson. He grew up in Eugene, Oregon and attended North Eugene High School, Judson Baptist College in Portland, Oregon, and the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon.


He began a career in printing in the early 1980’s which ended up spanning about three decades and three different states.


He married his wife, Joy Graham, of The Dalles, Oregon in 1979 and had three children, Jenni, David, and Jon. He was a wonderful husband and father.


For a time, Mike enjoyed operating the sound system at Siloam Springs Bible Church where he was a member.


He also liked amateur astronomy and enjoyed doing it with others, as well as teaching others about it with his friends. Watching old movie classics was also a favorite thing to do.


As a youth, he was a member of the Boy Scouts and reached the level of Eagle Scout.


Mike accepted Christ as his Savior early in life and devoted his life to serving the Lord through his career.


He is survived by his wife, Joy Peterson of Siloam Springs, Arkansas, his sons, David Peterson of Tulsa, OK and Jonathan Peterson of Siloam Springs, AR, his sister, Jackie Fischer of Eugene, OR and brother, Greg Peterson of Portland, OR, as well as other extended family in the Pacific Northwest and elsewhere.


Mike was loved by many and will be truly missed in this life. Now he is at peace in the arms of his Savior, Jesus Christ.
