 Aiden was born April 5, 2011 in St. Cloud to Adam and Teri (Schaefer) Petersen. He lived his whole life in Sartell, and was a 7th grade student at Sartell Middle School. One of his favorite places to be was in school. He was everyone’s friend and always had a big smile on his face. He especially liked playing NASCAR with Mr. Olson. Aiden loved being with his family, spending time at the Wisconsin Dells and being in the water. He also enjoyed car rides, going for walks, playing at the park and going shopping. Aiden was a happy, mischievous, funny boy who was also a great listener. He was a loving son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend. Most importantly, Aiden loved being around his family and friends. “Fly high Batman”
