Verlyn Curtis Peterson

Dec. 15, 1933 – Dec. 22, 2019

Verlyn Curtis Peterson,

86 passed away peacefully

on December 22, 2019, at

the Tioga Nursing Home.

Verlyn was born De-

cember 15, 1933, in Kitt-

son County, Minnesota to

Harry and Alvina (Eilert-

son) Peterson. Verlyn en-

listed in the Army on No-

vember 19, 1952 and was

honorably discharged as a

Lieutenant Sergeant on

October 19, 1954. While

in the Army he received

multiple metals for his

service in Korea. After

serving, Verlyn moved to

Tioga where he worked

for a roustabout company

before going to KBM and

eventually Amerada Hess.

Verlyn married the love

of his life, Marvell Joyce

Felber on August 6, 1955.

They welcomed two chil-

dren: Jennifer Lea Peter-

son and Ture Jon Peter-

son. In 1973, Verlyn re-

tired from Amerada Hess

and bought the local

bowling alley, B&B

Center, which he and his

family ran until 1991.

Verlyn was a staple in the

bowling community and

was very passionate about

bowling throughout his

entire life. He was induct-ed into the North Dakota

Bowling Hall of Fame in

1998 and bowled in many

national tournaments

around the US. Unfor-

tunately he was never

able to achieve the elusive

perfect game of 300 but he

was able to watch his son,

Ture roll his first 300 and

celebrate together. He was

also an active member of

his church, the American

Legion, and 40&8.

Verlyn and Marvell en-

joyed traveling together as

well as spending time

with their family and

friends. Some of his favor-

ite times were times spent

at the bowling alley, fish-

ing at White Earth Bay,

golfing at the Tioga Coun-

try Club, playing softball

and cards with friends.
