It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of our brother, Milton Willie Clarence Peterson, affectionately known as "Peter." He passed away quietly on Feb. 23, 2018, in the home of his daughter and son-in-law, Melanie and Joseph Davila, in Fredericksburg, Va. Milton was born on Dec. 17, 1940 and grew up in Jasper, Fla.
Peter was a very quiet, motivated individual with personality plus.
Some of his life achievements include being an accomplished baker, specializing in cake decorating for the Giant Food Company.
Peter and his wife, Gerrie established a successful daycare center in Fredericksburg, Va., known as "The True Vine Daycare Center."
Peter and Gerrie also formed a popular Gospel Singing Combo and attended many singing engagements in the Virginia area throughout the south.
We are going to miss Milton. He was alert, coherent, and smiling until the end.
The family was blessed to have him as a father, a brother, uncle, and a cousin.
We will certainly miss his easy-going personality, his great sense of humor, and his beautiful smile.
Ames Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
