Carl Thomas Peterson passed away on October 7th 2023, at the age of 70, leaving behind an enduring legacy of love, kindness, humor, and wisdom. A devoted husband, father, grandfather, and friend, he was the anchor of our family. His unwavering love for his spouse, Judith A Peterson, served as a model for us all.


Tom was a cherished friend to many. With his easygoing nature he share his knowledge generously. Tom possessed a remarkable ability to offer support, guidance, and a listening ear, always with a joke or a light-hearted quip to brighten the moment. He had the unique ability to find humor even in life's challenges. Tom was often described as being like a brother and father to those who knew him. 


Tom had a passion for live music, fishing, gaming, flying RC Airplanes, sharing time with his family, and caring for his two dogs Sherman and Tesla. His memory lives on in all of those fortunate enough to know him. Tom leaves behind a brighter world, marked by his legacy of love, kindness, and remarkable ability to make the best of every moment.

A celebration of his life will be held on Saturday October 28, 2023. His family suggests making donations to The Humane Society for Tacoma & Pierce County in his memory.
