Kevin Duane Peterson, age 46 of Prescott, WI, died unexpectedly on Tuesday, October 22, 2019. Kevin was born February 23, 1973 in Robbinsdale, MN to parents Duane R. and Sandra L. (Heeney) Peterson. Kevin graduated from Columbia Heights High School with the Class of 1991. On April 30, 2005, he was united in marriage to his best friend, Lynn Mulligan. Kevin was a proud dad to his two children, Hanna and Ayden.

Kevin worked at Prescott Smoke Shop and Scab’s Place for many years. Outside of work, Kevin enjoyed time spent with family and his children. Kevin enjoyed attending, and at times coaching, his kids sporting events, playing mini-golf, video games, and enjoying treats with them at the local DQ. Kevin also enjoyed an occasional trip to the bowling alley. Some of his favorite times were the annual family cabin trip to Siren, Wisconsin. He loved family gatherings, especially ones that involved mom’s home cooked meal.

  • Dear Kevin,
    Many memories and thoughts are going thru my mind in the past week of the childhood we had together. You were more than just my older cousin, you were my big brother. You should be very proud of the man you became, as I sure was of you! No matter how many years passed before seeing eachother, we always seemed to pick up right where we left off. I now know of your struggles and pain and am very sorry I wasn’t there to help. Know this, you are loved, your kids love you, family too! Rest Peacefully now Kevin, walk with God, and play some horseshoes with Grandpa Hank! Love you and miss you! Jeramie

  • I knew you in 7th grade, I knew you as Norm. Right now all I remember is all our happy memories and the bad ones have fallen away. Thank you for our two amazing children. Thank you for listening to me rant or just laugh. You were a high school friend, a guy I was dating, my husband and father to our kids. You will forever be in my heart and I will forever hold your memory for our kids and our future grandchildren. Miss you 💜💚

  • Oh Kevin, so many years ago when you were working at the Spur Station on Rice Street I met you. (I had worked driving school bus many years before with your mom and you were just a little guy then.) You were always courteous and oh so patient when my kids would come into the store. Vince in particular lived for the moment when you or Mark were there so he could torment you with his young boy sense of humor…. your passing is a big loss of a friend from his childhood, and so unfair that your time was not longer. My deepest condolences to your family and friends here, and your friends that you made after leaving here. God bless…….

  • Im so hurt that this wonderful man is gone. He will be so missed! To his family, you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

  • Kevin,
    Mr. Always positive….made light jokes to find the best in every situation. A loving father to your kids and always involved in their sporting events. You will be deeply and truly missed by many.
    RIP Dear Kevin…..RIP!!!
