Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: Rest in Peace Ann and Royce Peterson
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Royce in Georgetown TX on Sunday, April 26, 2015 - 08:02 pm:

Both of my loving parents passed away in the last few days. We had Mom's funeral yesterday. Dad passed this morning so that they can be together again. I will miss them greatly. I hope that all of you can appreciate just how much they meant to each other. It is somewhat poetic that they chose to leave this earth and travel to the next together.

Mom's obituary is here:
http://www.startribune.com/obituaries/detail/76088/?fullname=ann-e-(hinrichs)-peterson

We are planning a joint memorial service to be in Dallas next Saturday, May 2, 2015. He will be laid to rest at the Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery in Arlington, TX with mom. Details will be forthcoming.

Royce - my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family right now. Your Dad was a legend in the T community and it was fortunate for all that he and your Mom were so long on this Earth. At least they are in a better place together.

Respectfully,

Oh, Gee. I do feel for you. It always saddens me to hear of these events. However, I do want to hear of them as it does affect people I know and care about.
In your case, Royce, it has always seemed that you had an exceptional relationship with your folks, one that most of us could envy. In some ways, that makes this time more difficult. Hopefully you will cherish the many wonderful memories of your parents for a long time to come.
My deepest sympathies to you and the rest of your family and friends.

My sincere sympathy for you at this time. With regards to our Model T experiences, our Dads introduced us to these wonderful cars and clubs and taught us much about what we know about T's. Model T's and Model T people have influenced our lives in so many ways and provided us with some awesome experiences. Fortunately my Dad is till with me and I cherish each time he rides with me in the T. I am sure you will continue to smile and think of the wonderful memories of your Dad each time you drive a T.

Royce,

Im so sorry to hear of your loss. You and your extended family will be in our thoughts and prayers. One of the things that helped me process the loss of my Mom a few years ago was a country song. It is sung by Brad Paisley and called, When I get where Im going. Perhaps in some small way it can be a comfort to you also. It is located at: https://www.bradpaisley.com/?q=vef/load/b78ec7aa1c4d9da3444653a604e65db0&width=6 40px&height=363

I never had the pleasure of meeting your folks, but I have heard comments about your dad from lots of Model T guys. I never heard a negative word about him. You are fortunate to have had such a great role model. Peace.

Royce,

I am so sorry to hear of this. I've always admired how proud you were/are of them both. It reminded me of the bond I had with my mom & dad, now both gone too. I know how you must be feeling. Personally, it helped me to realize how terrible it would have been if their passing had NOT been so sorrowful. Take joy in your sadness, it means they were good people and that you loved them very much. How wonderful that they were in your life. God bless you.

I am very sorry to hear of the passing of Ann and Royce. I knew Royce before he met Ann. I believe he met Ann at a "Tall Person" organization. He drove by my home in about 1946 driving a circa 1916 Maxwell. He lived off of 4th Ave. South in Minneapolis. He had two sisters in St. Paul. I often visited Ann and Royce when they lived in Bloomington, MN and Royce worked for Braniff Air lines as a mechanic. We were partners for a while selling Model T parts. He was a great "Ford Man" and give much of his time to the hobby.

Royce, my grandparents died on the same day in 1960, my grandfather expectedly and my grandmother completely unexpectedly. It was extremely hard on my dad, but what a blessing for them. A friend, my former high school English teacher, wrote to me, "This is the stuff of which poems and ballads are made." I grieve for you and your family, but rejoice for them. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
