Paul passed away peacefully in Penticton with his family at his side August 23, 2014. He eagerly came into the world on March 16, 1968 at MSA Hospital in Abbotsford, BC. Paul is the loving son of Art and Donna Peters and eldest brother to Scott (Tiffany) and Troy (Tonya) Peters also of Abbotsford. He graduated from WJ Mouat in 1986 and throughout his school aged years demonstrated a passion for wrestling and baseball. Growing up in Abbotsford, Paul and his family enjoyed many outdoor activities and camping adventures together, and eventually with the guidance of his father, Art, he became an avid huntsman and fisherman. In 1993 Paul was blessed with his first born son Kyle, and shortly thereafter, in 1994, he proudly welcomed his second son Sean. Paul relocated to Penticton in 1994 and soon became a valued person in the community, forming many relationships and friendships. Soon after his arrival in Penticton, Paul joined the Quest ball team where he quickly became part of their special family; their support has gone beyond what could have ever been expected. Paul was a devoted employee of Terasen Gas for over 20 years, and throughout his career, he formed many cherished friendships with his colleagues. Throughout his courageous battle with cancer Paul received the unconditional support and love of so many. His family will eternally be grateful to all of you.
He is survived by his boys, Kyle and Sean; his wife Ali and his step children, Kaylee, Dan, Justin, and Matthew; nieces Alexandra and Lauren and nephews, Jesse and Charlie. Paul will be greatly missed by all who knew him and loved him. A Celebration of his Life will be held Monday, Sept. 1, 2014 1:00 p.m. at the Penticton Lakeside Resort.
