Herbert O. Peterson, 79, died Tuesday, Feb. 27, 2007. He had been dealing with Parkinson's disease for several years. Herbert was born Jan. 7, 1928. He served in the United States Army Air Corp from 1946 to 1949. He was a teacher in the Cloquet Public Schools and taught industrial arts from 1954 to 1985. He was a quiet person, always willing to lend a helping hand and stood for no nonsense.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Carl and Hannah, and his first wife, Betty.

He is survived by his wife, Elaine, who is coping with Alzheimer's; his children, Herbert Allen, John (Kathy) and Mary (Joe) Charles; his grandchildren, Tanner, Andrew, Emily, Mariah and Hannah; and his brother, Walter.
