Neal Delano Peterson

January 20, 1937-January 8, 2021

Neal Delano Peterson 83, from Littlefield AZ, passed away peacefully on January 8, 2021. He was born in Zurich, Montana to John Frederick Peterson and Alta Genell Russell. He lived a full and meaningful life consisting of a love of music and family. In his early life he enjoyed playing bass, guitar and singing as part of the Peterson Brothers Band; he would later go on to form Country Addition and would continue to share his talents with friends and family.

Neal was a hard working and successful contractor. As owner of Lanwood Construction with his sons he would build several projects around Utah that will stand the test of time, including much of the Sundance ski resort in Provo Canyon. Everyone who knew Neal would speak fondly of his sense of humor, his contagious smile and the ease that he was able to love. He was a beloved son, brother, father, grandfather, uncle and friend. As the life of the party, Neal was always eager for a camping trip, a boat ride and a song around the campfire. He believed in living life to the fullest and he influenced everyone around him to be the best version of themselves; the version that he knew they could be.

Neal is survived by his wife Claudia, his brother Lyle, his sister Genell and daughter-in-law Jackie Peterson Olsen. He is also survived by his sons John (Melanie) from Salem, UT, Rick (Annette) from Spanish Fork, UT, and his daughters Nealetta of Grantsville, UT, Cindy (Clavell) of Salem, UT, Robyn (Craig) of St. George, UT, Rachelle (David), of Washington, UT as well as 33 grandchildren and 43 great-grandchildren. He is proceeded in death by his parents, his first wife Peggy, his sister Evelyn, his brothers Jay, Ross, Ralph and Keith; and his sons Rob and Wayne.

A Viewing will be held Friday, January 15th, 2021 at 11:00 am at Spring Creek Mortuary,737 N, Main Street, Springville, Utah. The funeral service will follow immediately after at 12:00. Internment at the Spanish Fork Cemetery.

If you wish to join remotely, there will be a live stream of the services on Legacy Funerals Facebook page.
