ORONO - Bryant Norman Peterson, 74, entered into eternal life on July 23, 2016 at home in Orono, wrapped in the loving arms of his wife, Irene Louise (Beadnell) Peterson, of nearly 52 years and surrounded by his family. He was born to Donald & Dorothy (Paronto) Peterson on April 30, 1942 in Clinton, MA. Even with all of Bryants life accomplishments, including serving in the Air Force and Reserves, forty-plus years employed at MPBN, and his complete devotion to family, Bryants ultimate pursuit was to know Jesus more each day, hear the voice of the Holy Spirit and show others the unconditional love of God.
Surviving Bryant are his mother (k.n.a. Dorothy CaraDonna) and his wife. His sisters, Nancy Armour & Arlene Paris. His son, Larry D. Peterson, wife Susan, and children Kelvin & Donasie. His Daughter Lori D. Colford, husband Dale, and their daughter Crystal Blythe, Lori's sons Gavin & Stephen, Lori's daughter Sheri Crane & husband Chris plus their daughters Trinity & Victoria plus Sheri's son Troy, and also Dale's children Corinn, David, Steven & family. His Daughter Sheri B. Rowe, husband Marty, Sheri's sons Brody & Tanner and Marty's son Zac. He was predeceased by his father, baby brother, Larry, and sister, Sandra (Peterson) Nygard.
