Thomas Marvin Peters

Thomas Marvin Peters

Our beloved son, brother, uncle, and friend, Thomas Marvin Peters, 74, of Spokane died April 11, 2018. He joins his Dad and brother in Heaven and this culminates a life filled with adventure, good and tough times. He held Jesus in his heart.

Tom was born to Marvin and Pearl Peters in Superior, Wisconsin and grew up in Hayward. He served in the U.S. Army during the Cuban Missile Crisis and moved to Washington in 1977, but also lived in Mountain Home, Idaho for several years.

His dream was to become a long haul professional truck driver and that became a reality with him putting over a million miles on the big rigs. He retired in Newport in 2007 and lived in the Spokane Veterans Home for the last 3 ½ years.

He loved the outdoors, hunting and fishing from Wisconsin to the northwest, Canada and Alaska. His “bucket” was filled with memories.

He was preceded in death by his father, Marvin in 1968 and his brother Lee in 1970. He is survived by his mother Pearl Peters, 96, of Marshfield, Wisconsin, brother David (LeiLanie) of Mead, nephew Daniel (Julie) of Spokane, many aunts, cousins (notably Floyd Peters, Jr and Erik Raygor of Wisconsin) and friends.

Final services will be conducted at the Washington State Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Medical Lake at a later date. Huge thanks to the staff on 6 South Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center and the Spokane Veterans Home. We love you Tom.
