Stephen "Steve" Joseph Peterson
Steve, age 69, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, July 4, 2020 with his loved ones by his side. He was a native of New Orleans, LA and a resident of Ponchatoula, LA. Steve proudly served his country as a Merchant Marine. He enjoyed fishing and watching Nascar and the Saints. Steve had a guilty pleasure of getting sucked into TV shows about Big Foot and UFOs. His family still laughs about it today. He truly was a remarkable man that always put his family first and took great pride in being a Pops. Steve left such an impact on those he loved and will be forever missed.
