Scott Allen Peterson, August 24, 1957 — July 16, 2020

Scott Allen Peterson of Sisters passed away peacefully in his home and surrounded by his family July 16 at the age of 62 of ongoing health issues.

He is survived by his wife and partner of 27 years Toni Ramsey; parents Wendell and Ruth Peterson of Salem; sister Cheryl Peterson; son Eric Peterson of Lyons, Oregon; daughters Amy Thomas of Stayton, Tabatha Hammond of Sisters, and Tanya Nason of Sisters.

Scott had seven grandchildren: Brandon and Taylor Thomas of Stayton; Cody Hammond of Redmond and Brianna Hammond of Bend; Johnathan Nason of Sisters/Na’alehu, HI, Zoey Nason of Sisters, and Sydney Nason of Sisters.

Scott worked as an excavator in Sisters for many years but was considered a jack-of-all-trades and a master of none…unless you consider fishing. Scott loved the outdoors and spent as much time outside as he could, camping, woodcutting, fishing, and working on machinery.

Scott was a diehard Nascar fan and would plan a weekend around a race. Many people remember Scott for his willingness to help, his honesty, and capabilities with working on a car. Though the man couldn’t dance he loved classic rock and country music and always had music playing when he was working in the garage.

In Scott’s younger years he spent a lot of time on motorcycles and loved to ride.

Scott was a kind, honest man and was loved by many. Due to the current pandemic the family is waiting to have a service for Scott but we will be sure and let friends and family know when we do.
