George William Peterson (Quinn McGowen Funeral Home)

ROCKY POINT — George William Peterson, age 78, of Rocky Point, NC passed away on November 27, 2023.

He was born on December 13, 1944 in Wilmington, NC to the late Henry Lonnie Peterson and Mary Catherine Ezzell Peterson.

George was a caring man and always put others before himself. He enjoyed gardening and the great outdoors. When he wasn’t fixing something, he could be found on his tractor.
