Larry was born Oct. 2, 1951, in Sherman, Texas.
Larry was a retired sergeant from the Texas Department of Public Safety, where he served for over 25 years.
Larry will be greatly missed by his family and friends. In his free time he enjoyed riding his motorcycle, trips to Colorado and his beloved dogs.
He is survived by his father, John R. Peterson; son Chris Peterson and wife Julie; daughter Kelli Brinkkoeter and husband Kevin; brother Mike Peterson and wife Paula; sister Susan Doss and husband Keith; and granddaughters Vada Peterson and June Brinkkoeter.

In lieu of flowers we ask that donations be made to a cancer research organization of choice, tell friends and family how much you love them and don't sweat the small stuff in life.
