Daniel Peters obituary
Daniel Thomas Peters - a devout Catholic, loving husband, father, grandfather, and brother passed away on Thursday, April 8 at Methodist Hospital, Rochester, Minn., after a fight with Renal Cancer.
He was born June 7, 1957 in Lake City, Minn., to Arnold and JoAnn Peters, the second of three children. He graduated from Lake City High School in 1975 and joined the Navy. He was honorably discharged in 1979 and began schooling at RCC for Mechanical Engineering Drafting. He met his wife and best friend, Theresa, and they were married on May 24, 1986 at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Rochester. They had three children. In 1995, after great discernment, he was welcomed into the Catholic Church at the Church of the Holy Family, in Kasson, Minn., where he remained highly active. Over the course of his life his career included jobs at Hiawatha Land Tools, Home Depot, and most recently, Benchmark Electronics. Although his faith came first he was also highly involved in National Ski Patrol (Welch and Coffee Mill), Zumbro River Sportsman’s Club, the Knights of Columbus, the American Legion (especially the Color Guard), the Mantorville Theatre Company, and many others. He will be remembered for his joy, his smile, and his love for life...and his Hawaiian Shirts.
He is survived by his wife Theresa (Mock); his children Joseph, Rebecca (Henry Brown), and Benjamin; his siblings Diane (Burfeind) and Anita; his mother-in-law Marilyn Slama (Wilmes); his grandchildren Ozman, Malachi, Anastasia, and Fulton; and many cousin, nieces, nephews, and in-laws.
