Obituary for Henry A. "Hank" Peterson

GRAFTON: Henry A. “Hank” Peterson, 98, passed away peacefully June 2, 2024. His wife Eileen (Murphy) Peterson predeceased him. He leaves his son Michael Peterson and his wife Donna, his sister Jane Cronin, his grandchildren Brian Carter, Kelly Segal, and Timothy and Erin Peterson, his great-grandchildren Zachary and Steven Carter, Finn Johnson and Ava Peterson, his stepbrother John Donovan and many nieces and nephews. He was also predeceased by 10 siblings.

Hank was born in Hinsdale, NH and his roots were in Grafton where he lived for most of his life. He was a proud World War II veteran serving as a Gunners Mate in the United States Navy aboard the USS Tabitha Brown, a Liberty troop transport ship. Hank worked as an HVAC Engineer for many years before retiring from that role from UMass Memorial in Worcester.

Following his military service he returned to Grafton where he played baseball for the Polish Tigers in South Grafton and softball in Auburn with the Pinehurst Café team. One of his true joys throughout his life was playing golf and he was a long time member of Whitinsville Country Club.

All are welcome to gather with Hank’s family and friends Friday June 7th from 10-11am at Roney Funeral Home 152 Worcester St. N. Grafton, MA 01536 followed by the celebration of his Funeral Mass at 11:30 at St. James Church 89 Main St. S. Grafton, MA 01560. He will then be laid to rest with military honors at Fairview Cemetery in South Grafton.
