Judd George Peterson, 77, of Merrifield, passed away at his home on Nov. 26, 2019.

Judd was born in Brainerd to George and Freda (Besser) Peterson on Jan. 12, 1942. He was united in marriage to Kaye Hill on Aug. 3, 1963 at St. Francis Catholic Church in Brainerd. 

Their children, Kim and Derek, were born in 1964 and 1969 and the family moved to Glenwood where Judd set up his chiropractic practices in both Glenwood and Alexandria. In 2004, he and Kaye retired to his hometown of Brainerd where he loved being a member of the lake’s community.

He enjoyed hunting, fishing and golfing. Nothing was rushed with Judd; he was meticulous and methodical — taking his time to finish perfect products working in his shop. He enjoyed watching old westerns and Minnesota sports teams, but above all, Judd cherished his family and the time they spent at the lake.
