Bob is a native of Waltham and attended school there. After leaving college he went to work for the Polaroid Corporation in the manufacturing division, joining many family members who were employed there. He retired in 2007 after almost forty years of service. He lives in the Cedarwood neighborhood of Waltham with his wife, a retired senior high school English teacher, his daughter, a sophomore at Stonehill College, and their two cats and very spoiled dog. In his spare time he enjoys hiking, working on projects in the house and following the seasons of our local sports teams. As a family, the Petersons really enjoy taking cruises and exploring new places and meeting people from all over. Next summer, they hope to visit the Panama Canal Zone.
