After a long stay and an operation on December 21, 2022, Richard passed away peacefully at the Regina General Hospital on December 30, 2022 at the age of 68.
Much gratitude goes out to the doctors and nurses who cared for him along the way and to the caring friends and relatives who called him, even though he couldn't always answer his phone, and visited him. Richard greatly appreciated the company.
Richard (also known to many as Pete) was a Journeyman Carpenter who utilized his many skills with the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool and the Carpenter's Union. But most important, Richard was a family man who treasured family, especially his daughter, Joelle, and grand daughters, Mackenzzy and Saffron, and rarely missed a family gathering. During his off hours, he spent his time with family, travelling to gatherings and around the countryside, camping, fishing, gardening, homesteading a lake cottage and renovating his home, mostly with his wife and helper by his side, and helping others. He also cared for his fish aquariums and Boots (the cat), had a daily coffee with his buddies and more.
Richard, a kind, gentle, giving, caring and responsible man who sadly missed his parents Pearl and Wilfred (Bill) Peters, and his sister Judy and her husband Henning Lind and their son Michael, will now be sadly missed by his wife, Sharon; his daughter Joelle Peters and her daughter, Mackenzzy; his sister Susan and her husband, Robert Baird, and their children, Hailie and Meagan and their families; his brother William (Bill) Peters and his wife, Jane, and their children, Caleb and Taylor; his nephew, Russel Lind and family; his step sons, Robert Pitzel and his daughter, Saffron, and Rick Pitzel and his wife Teri; Sharon's parents, sisters and their families; and his many cousins, aunts and uncles and friends.
