Michael Peterson was a friend to everyone. If we were to write out every single one of Mike's friends, acquaintances, and those that will miss him, we wouldn't have enough room to fit them all. He was always willing to lend a helping hand with anything you needed done. Mike was born to Marvin (deceased) and Shirley Peterson of Gig Harbor on April 16, 1961; Mike was needed to help his Lord and Savior and passed away during the night of November 7, 2023.
Mike loved to laugh and make others laugh. He loved music and dancing. He loved photography. He loved working out at the gym. And he loved fast cars! His adventurous spirit was shared through his love for hiking, cycling, and spending time working outside. He enjoyed making family gatherings fun and did his best to bring a lightheartedness to everything he was a part of.
Mike attended Peninsula High School, and previously worked at the shipyards in Bremerton before a 24-year career as an engineer at Boeing where he combined both artistic and technical skills, while of course also making lots of friends.
Above all else, he loved spending time with his family. His spirit is carried on by his three children; Jacob, Brenna, and Seth, and two grandchildren Vincent and Lyla, who loved spending time with him too. His family will always remember his laugh, his smile, and his warm hugs. We will love and miss you forever.
In honor of Mike, please make a donation to your favorite charity in lieu of flowers.
