Clarence Raymond Peterson
Clarence Raymond Peterson, age 89, formerly of Ludington, died Tuesday
evening, March 20, 2001 at Birchwood Nursing Center in Traverse City.
He was born on October 22, 1911 in Free Soil, the son of the late Carl
Andrew and Anna (Hansen) Peterson. He attended schools in Victory Township
(Mason County) and Manistee Public Schools. He finished eleventh grade
at Manistee High School and began a lifelong career as a Great Lakes seaman.
In 1930, after initial service on several Passenger-Package Freight vessels,
he began a 54-year career aboard the Pere Marquette Car Ferries (later,
the Chesapeake & Ohio and the Baltimore & Ohio Railway Systems)
that ended with his July 1, 1984 retirement ‹ at the same time the B&O
terminated its cross-lake service at Ludington. At retirement, he was the
senior employee in the entire B&O system. During the course of his
long career, he progressed from deckhand, lookout and watchman to wheelsman.
He favored the latter and chose to spend the bulk of his career in that
post. When he began his career, the carferries were old, time-worn ³two-stackers²
that dated back a good many years. He later was aboard the City of Saginaw,
City of Flint, City of Midland, Spartan and Badger on their maiden voyages
to Ludingtom from the Manitowoc shipyard. Clarence, who rode out some fierce
Lake Michigan storms, called the 1940 Armistice Day storm the worst he
had experienced. He was aboard the City of Flint when it had to be beached
just north of the harbor entrance. He took pride in his skill as a wheelsman
and he particularly enjoyed the challenge of guiding his vessel to Milwaukee¹s
Jones Island dock. The main challenge was a railroad bridge with a clearance
of just two feet. His knowledge of the river current, wind conditions and
the vessel¹s helm response let him guide it through the bridge without
touching either side. Clarence greatly enjoyed hunting and fishing with
a number of his close Ludington friends. He also enjoyed watching automobile
races, as well as football, basketball, hockey and baseball games. He was
a ³Golden Eagle² member of Ludington Aerie 1354, Fraternal Order
of Eagles, and a life member of the Ludington Elks Lodge 736.
He is survived by: two brothers and sisters-in-law, Ernest and Eleanor
Peterson of Manistee, and Donald and Dorothy Peterson of Manistee; two
nephews, Carl J. Peterson and Robert W. Peterson; five nieces, Nancy Greal,
Marian MacNicol, Anna Rhodea, Carol Steinberg, and Terri L. Pieterson.
He was also preceded in death by: his parents, Carl A. Peterson and
Anna (Hansen) Peterson; and one brother, Alfred A. Peterson.
Cremation has taken place. In accordance with his express wishes, there
will be no visitation or memorial service. The Herbert Funeral Home of
Manistee is in charge of funeral arrangements.
