Jim was a wonderful guy, I met him at the Trust department at the bank. My children were young then and he would give me advice when I was having problems with them. He was a very wise man and always cordial. He was a friend to everyone, he will be missed.

I worked with Jim at the ole Lafayette National Bank for 17 years. I was in the Auditing Dept. and Jim of course in the Trust Dept. Jim always had a minute to talk to me person to person and it didn't bother him that I was in the Auditing Dept. He could talk to you pretty much on any subject and really enjoyed our conversations and explanations over the years. Jim was just one of those all around good guys. I remember him telling me that even though he had to wear the stuffy ole shirt and tie, the minute he got home he went to work in the garden sometimes before changing out of his shirt and tie. I always had this picture of a bear foot guy working in a garden with his suit and tie still on. RIP my friend.

Thank you Jim Peterson for the excellent care you gave to Clegg Gardens for so many years. My family and I have enjoyed years of hiking on the trails he maintained. Jim was a wildflower expert and always had a smile to go with any question you might ask. Your work and teachings are much appreciated.
