William "Scott" Peterson BARRE — It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of William "Scott" Peterson. Surrounded by family and friends, Scott passed peacefully Oct. 5, 2021, at the University Vermont Medical Center in Burlington, after a courageous battle. “Kind. Gentle. Supportive and Strong. He would do anything for anyone …” These are the words used by friends and family alike, to describe him. Scott was born in Norwood, Massachusetts, on June 5, 1968, to William Peterson and Earline Miner. He was predeceased by his father, William Peterson, and brother, Jeffery Peterson. He will forever be cherished by his loving mother, Earline Miner; his son, Scottie Emmons, daughter, Shyla Peterson, and stepsons, Ty and Logan Avery; his loving sister, Kathy Peterson, and brother, Ralph Peterson; his adoring grandchildren, Cameron, Hazel and Leah Emmons; daughter-in-law, Salina Emmons; and loving aunts, cousins, nieces, nephews, sister-in-law and many lifelong friends. Scott loved spending time with his kids and grandkids, drawing and playing D&D with his friends, going to the movies, watching Big Brother, scratch tickets and Cumby’s coffee.

I have known Scott for 26 yrs he was my children's school bus driver for several years and I was so thankful he was so wonderful wirh them in his care he was one of the kindest people I have ever met and very respectful. I am very sorry for his family and all those that loved him and anyone that knew him was very lucky to have.


Scott was such a great man. I've seen him do anything for anyone that needed it. I was usually his sidekick whenever we played D&D at Mark's house. His smile always lit up the room. He was a dear friend. You will be missed my brother


Scott was an inspiration as he fought his way through his health issues. He always had a smile and was ready for a laugh. He had a warm heart and for all he encountered. I will miss him greatly. My prayers are with his family, especially "Mom" who sacrificed every day for him! Jan Urish
