roger c. petersen


Roger C. Petersen retired in October 2008 from a commercial banking career that spanned four decades. He was, at the beginning , a banking grunt whose customers were the poorest of the poor: Native Americans living on an isolated reservation.

Along his career pathway, Petersen became a long-term eyewitness to the collapse of America’s value system. It began with a tarnish in the 70’s that turned to decay in the 80’s and 90’s and the follow-on systemic meltdown. Each of those many experiences over all those years left vivid memories, now stuffed in a bag that he carries with him.

Petersen lives with Dianne, his wife of nearly a half century on a small rural acreage near DeSmet, South Dakota. Their three grown sons are, or have been, also involved in commercial banking. The grist for the mill is in endless supply.
