William G. "Willy" Peterson of Center, Texas, died February 5, 2008, in Chicago, IL, at the age of
59.  He is survived  by two sons, Eron Peterson of Elkhart, Texas, and Jalon Peterson of Chireno,
Texas;  one daughter, Kimberly Mitchell of Kyle, Texas;  adn eight grandchildren.  Memorial service
will be held at 2 PM Saturday, March 22, 2008, at Millard's Crossing Chapel.

Notes from a conversation I had with Willie's sister, Patricia, on August 1, 2009:     At the time of
his death, Willie was living in Chicago with his childhood sweetie, Liz ( her family would spend
summers in Alex - they had reconnected after the death of Willie's mother in 1994 )    At the time
of his death, Willie had been having trouble breathing.  He also had a growth on his lung and was going
back to Texas for treatment.  The morning he was to start his drive down south, Liz found hiim
collapsed on the floor - he died later that day of congestive heart failure.
Patricia said that Willie was a great carpenter - had spent most of his years after graduation in
Texas  ....   and until the end, called a bad day of fishing better than a good day at work.
