In Loving Memory of

Brian Joseph Peterson

Brian Joseph Peterson passed away to be with his Savior, surrounded by his family on Monday, August 1, 2022 at Sanford Medical Center in Sioux Falls, SD as the result of a motorcycle accident at the age of 49.  Brian was born on November 24, 1972, in Mitchell, SD to Delbert and Marie (Luebke) Peterson. He grew up in Mt. Vernon, SD and graduated from Mt. Vernon High School in 1991. He then attended SDSU, where he met his future wife, and received a Bachelor of Science Degree in nursing in 1995.  Brian was united in marriage to Angi Hennrich on July 26, 1996 in Mitchell, SD. After their marriage, they moved to Rochester, MN for a year before moving to Kasson, MN. Brian worked at St. Mary’s Hospital as an RN before attending Mayo School of Health Sciences, where he earned his Master of Nurse Anesthesia Degree.  Following his graduation in 2003, he and Angi moved to Slayton, MN where Brian worked at the Murray County Medical Center and where they raised their four children.  Brian was a devoted father and loving husband. He loved spending his time with his family and many friends and never turned down an invitation for fun. He enjoyed coaching his kids’ baseball and basketball teams, spending time at the lake, and playing disc golf with his dog, Jovie. He especially loved riding his motorcycle. He looked forward to his annual Sturgis and Cabo vacations, visiting local breweries, and meeting new people. He had a special zest for life that will be missed by those who know and love him.
