November 4, 1941 – October 16, 2023
Charles (Charlie) Peters died peacefully at Matthews House Hospice in Alliston, after living with cancer for about three years. He was predeceased by his parents Clarke and Reta Peters, an infant sister Marjorie Ellen Adeline Peters, and a niece Sheryl Lee Cheshire. He will be greatly missed by his brothers Murray (Lee) and Lorne (Joyce), his nieces and nephews Steven Cheshire (Sheryl), Suzanne French (Ryan), Scott Peters (Tania), Michelle Rotchell (Trevor), and Clarke Peters (Alison) and his 15 grand nieces and nephews. Charlie farmed with his brother Murray on the family farm near Nashville, Ontario. After over 30 years of being tied down to the 24/7 riggers of dairy farming, he decided to test the waters of urban living. Here he expanded his interests in skiing, model airplane and helicopter flying, and even tasted the thrill of wind sailing and soaring. For many years, Charlie boarded at a house in Etobicoke where early in his stay, the co-owners of the house were blessed with twin girls. These girls, Caterina and Angelina Vespio, brought Charlie a great deal of pleasure over the past twenty plus years. He will be greatly missed by the two of them and their parents.
The family wishes to thank the very kind and caring staff and volunteers at Matthews House Hospice in Alliston for making Charlie’s final days as comfortable and pain free as possible.
The family will receive their friends at the Egan Funeral Home, 203 Queen Street S.
