Blacksburg, SC-- Albert Lee “Cooter” Peterson, Jr., 73, of Blacksburg, SC, passed away Wednesday, April 3, 2019 at Spartanburg Medical Center after a long battle with cancer. He was the son of the late Albert Lee Peterson, Sr. and Elsie Batchler Peterson, the loving husband of Bobbie Jean “Jeannie” Mullinax Peterson for 53 years, and a member of Broad River Baptist Church in Blacksburg. A retired forklift driver and receiving clerk, he worked most of his adult life at Union Butterfield, formerly known as Straitline, of Gaffney, SC. After the Lord, his wife and family, his life loves were the town of Blacksburg, the Blacksburg High School Wildcats, and the University of South Carolina Gamecocks. He took pride in everything he did, especially his yard, and loved to make people laugh and smile. As a beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, and friend to many, he will be sorely missed.

Cooter leaves behind a large family. Along with his wife, he leaves behind sons, Jeff Peterson and wife Becky, Preston Peterson and wife Lynn, grandchildren Halee Ramirez and husband Josh, Zach Peterson, Kelsey Peterson, and Melissa Taber, great-grandchildren Witt and Cade Ramirez, Brayden and Bryson Sprouse, and Carson Mullinax. The loving sisters left behind are Geraldine Goodson and Louise Lanier and husband James. He also leaves behind many friends who, in his last days, visited him and supported his family. He spoke many times of how blessed he was to have good neighbors who loved him as well, and the family wants them to know how much they are truly appreciated. He loved his church family and his pastor very much.

Visitation will be held Monday, April 8th, 2019 at Broad River Baptist Church from 1:30 to 3 with the service following immediately in the sanctuary. Burial will be private with only immediate family attending at a later time.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Iron City Ministries, 109 West Cherokee Street, Blacksburg, SC 29702 or Broad River Baptist Church, 420 West Cherokee Street, Blacksburg, SC 29702 in his memory.

The family is at his home at times other than the services.

Jeannie, although we did not get to see you and Cooter much, we always enjoyed seeing you and hearing Cooter and Betty Sue celebrate the Hickory Grove connection. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time of grieving. We join you in celebrating Cooter's arrival in his heavenly home. No pain or sorrow will ever be there

Preston I was so sorry to hear about your Dad. I know you was very close to him and you will miss him terribly and that there are no words that will take away your pain. Just from the conversations I would have with him at the funeral home it was easy to see that he was a caring Christian man who loved his family and was very proud of them. It was always a joy to see and talk with him. You and your family will be in my prayers and thoughts.

To Jeannie, Jeff, Preston and the rest of Cooter's family, you have my deepest sympathy in the passing of Cooter. I'm so sadden to hear of his passing. We had some of the best times working together at Straightline. Even after Straightline it was always a pleasure to run into cooter. We always had a laugh or two and boy, did he love to pick on my wife Janice. :-) May the good Lord wrap his loving arms around you in this time of sadness.

Loving Lord and Heavenly Father, I want to lift up some dear friends of mind that are going through so much grief at the moment and are finding it so difficult to come to terms with all that has taken place in the loss of Albert "Cooter" Peterson Jr.

I humbly ask that You would come to them and provide the comfort they need to come to terms with all that has happened and the strength to face the reality that things will never be as they were.

Lord, I know that their grief seems to be overwhelming them and I am hurting for them, and know not what to do to help and so I am coming to You to in prayer, to ask that You will meet each of them at their point of need and help them to turn to You at this sad time.

I pray that as the day passes Your healing touch will comfort and secure them in this time of distress and sadness and may this be a thing that causes each of them to draw closer to You, knowing that You alone can heal the broken-hearted and bring joy out of pain.

Thank You Lord for being there for each one of them and into Your hands we place each one of these dear loved ones who have such sadness in their hearts.

I KNOW in Whom I believe in and I have confidence that You will bring good out of this situation, and to You be all the praise and glory, Forever & Ever

I Marty Yesberg am Praying to you Heavenly Father in Jesus Name
