According to the City of Lancaster, he served the Lancaster community for more than 10 years and was known for his smiling face and commitment, even during his battle with cancer.
Peterson arrived back in Texas on Wednesday afternoon on Southwest Airlines Flight 381.
The procession began at Love Field and traveled through Lancaster, passing by each fire station before continuing onto Mansfield.
After passing Mansfield Fire Station 3 and the Mansfield Public Safety Building, the procession was scheduled to end at Blessing Funeral Home.
