William John (Billy) Peters went to be with the Lord on Dec. 15, 2010, at the age of 70.
Billy was a man of great strength and understanding. He lived his years with an open heart and worked most of his life for the sole purpose of his parents, children and family.
His passions were: hunting and fishing, carving, mechanics and logging, dancing, his children and grandchildren, and his home and lands of Peters Road. He was a great father who passed on many of his teachings to his children and was always surrounded by his grandchildren, who he loved very much. His legacy lives on through the steps of his children. He will be honored, loved, and greatly missed. Our futures will prosper in honor of his memory and his life will be celebrated by living out his dreams. We have one of the greatest angels in the sky watching over us now. Thank you, Dad. We love you. All my Relations.
William is predeceased by his parents Robert Peters Sr. and Minnie (Chapman) Peters, his sister Roberta Peters, and his adopted daughter Sherry Crey.
He is survived by his brothers Edward (Emma), Robert Jr. (Dorothy), and adopted brother Glen (Lorraine).
Billy is the very proud father of twelve children. With Dorothy (Dee) Williams, he had Darryll (Sherry). With Lorraine Phillips he adopted David, Sherry, and Lorraine (Glen). With Margaret (Peggy) Peters he had Troy (Dee), Nicole (Manny), William, and Opal. With Roseann Peters (Perry) he had Swede (Chelsea), Raven (Mike), Billie-Jean (Paul), and Dakota (Kelly).
Billy is also survived by 35 grandchildren, 5 great-grandkids, and many loved nephews, nieces, cousins and friends.
His legacy will continue forever.
