Dan was born May 29, 1991, in St. Peter, Minn., to David and Cheryl (Kruger) Peterson. In grade school, Dan was a paper carrier for the Mankato Free Press; and with his brother, Mike, provided lawnmowing services. He worked at the St. Peter Food Co-op all through high school. After St. Peter High School, Dan enlisted in the Army Reserves, 203rd Transportation, and then did tech support at Verizon Wireless at their Mankato call center and at their Woodbury store. Most recently he worked at Target providing internal IT support. Dan had a passion and talent for all things technical. He enjoyed owning and caring for several different breeds of dogs.
Daniel is survived by his parents; sister, Elizabeth Schendel, and her husband, Aaron, of St. Peter; and brother, Michael, and his significant other, Samantha Johnson, of Willmar; grandfather, Leslie Peterson of Sleepy Eye; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins; and a family of friends who love him very much. He was preceded in death by cousin, Jared Peterson and his maternal grandparents and paternal grandmother.
In lieu of flowers, the family would like memorials to the Humane Society or the Yellow Ribbon Suicide Prevention Program.
