Obituary for Anthony Chad Petersen
Tony Petersen, age 38, passed away on November 25, 2019 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He was born July 8th, 1981 in Lansing, Michigan. He grew up in Sparta, Michigan and attended Grand Valley State University. He later joined the United States Army and earned Army achievement medals at both Ft. Knox, Kentucky and Ft. Sill, Oklahoma. He completed his tour with Bravo Battery, 2D Battalion, 5th Field Artillery at Ft. Sill. Tony had a love for art and music and enjoyed drawing. He described himself on his facebook page as "Free, alive, joyous, creative, big hearted, adventurous, and epic"; he was spot on!! He had a heart of gold and compassion to match. His wit kept us in stitches. There is no doubt the legacy of his love will continue to influence and affect our lives continually and in "epic" ways. Tony was a believer in Jesus Christ as his savior; his family takes comfort in knowing that he is with Him in heaven.
Tony was preceded in death by his step father, Gerald Stover; his grandparents, Victor and Ruth Petetsen and Sam and Yvonne Misailedes. The loves of his life were his family, including his wife, Courtney; his mother, Melanie Stover (Ken Leiter); father, Chris Petersen; brothers, Travis Stover (Monique), Logan Stover (Jenna) and Jacob Stover (Amanda); uncles, Randy Petersen (Bird) and Eddie Petersen (Hope); amazing nephews, Jameson and Julius Stover, as well as many friends.
Services will be held at Ft. Custer National Cemetery, 15501 Dickman Rd. Augusta MI 49012 on Thursday, December 12, 2019 at 11:00AM will full military honors.
