Peters, John R

Died: 24 August 2020

John R Peters’ hard working hands came to peace with the Lord on 24 August 2020, at age 52 years. 

 He was born 31 May 1968, to Richard and Adeline (Faber) Peters.

 John graduated from West Bend West High School in 1986. He worked as a cement mason then, continued to receive a Mechanical Engineering degree from MSOE.

 He was united in marriage to Carla Anderson on 11 October 2003. They were blessed with a son, Mark.

He had many passions in life, but none more precious than his beloved son Mark. You could hear the pride in John’s voice when he talked about the home improvement he finished, watching Mark play soccer, or having the largest bowling handy cap in the league. He enjoyed the first snowfall for snowmobiling as well as attending sprint car or monster truck races. He liked spending time up north in Phelps, Wisconsin, being in the pits at modified and late model races, playing pool with friends and outdoor sports.

John was a caring and giving person, which continued after his death through his gift of organ, eye and tissue donations. A celebration of life gathering will be Sunday, 13 September, from 1:00-4:00pm at the West Bend Moose Lodge. As an expression of sympathy, memorial contributions may be given for his son Mark’s trust fund.  Please send any cards to Carla Peters at W4646 County Road F, Fond du Lac, WI 54937.
