#52 Ancestors - Week #5 - Ronald Damien Peterson

Ronald Damien Peterson was born 14 Sept 1976 in Staten Island, Richmond, New York. He was my brother. I will not post his parental line because they are still living. However, our family misses him very much. I wanted to do the Ancestry posting so he is not forgotten in generations to come. He died on 12 July 2002 on the way home from work. He was 26 years old. I have posted his obituary below.  He was engaged twice in his life and had no children.  He grew up in New Jersey and lived in West Palm Beach, Florida for his high school years. In 2000, he moved back to New Jersey and was planning to marry  two weeks after his death.
Over the years, Ronnie (as I always called him) struggled with alcohol but made a way to create harmony in our family. He was a great son, brother and friend. He lived in Cliffwood Beach, Long Branch, and Ocean, NJ as a child before moving to Florida for his high school years.  He liked playing sports and women as all young men do. I remember a time when we were little living in Cliffwood Beach and we were playing 'king of the hill" and all the girls pretended to run from him but were easily caught to get a chance to kiss him.
