Aaron “Snuffy” Blake Peterson, 41

Beloved son, brother and uncle, Aaron “Snuffy” Blake Peterson, 41, of Smelterville, Idaho, passed away at his home.  He was born July 31, 1980 in Silverton, Idaho; he was the son of Edward A. and Bonnie J. (Bailey) Peterson.

Aaron has lived in the Silver Valley all of his life.  He attended and graduated from the Kellogg High School in 1998.

Aaron had worked in building construction for a time.  But for many years he has served as a hoistman for the Bunker Hill Mining Company.

Aaron loved and enjoyed fishing, riding his bike, floating the river, watching UFC Fighting and snow boarding.
