Harold A. Peters

Harold A. Peters, age 73, Weston, passed away at home on Sept. 25, 2022 surrounded by his family. Harry was born on Oct. 19, 1948, in Lake Forest, Ill., to the late Harold O. and Shirley E. (Fritz) Peters. Harry married his wife, Mary (Turgeon) Peters, on Aug. 17, 1974, and together they raised two sons and were blessed with 48 years of marriage. The couple moved from Rhinelander to Weston in 1986.

Harry graduated from Rhinelander High School in 1967 and attended UW-Stevens Point. He retired from Sara Lee Corporation in 2014.

Music was one of Harry's passions. He loved playing his euphonium any chance he could. He was a member of the Wausau Concert Band, Mosinee City Band, Bull Falls Brass, Wausau Symphony and Band, and would volunteer to perform for any occasion. He enjoyed golfing, especially with family, as well as bowling, having been on many bowling teams in Rhinelander and Weston. Another passion of Harry's was politics. He was a member of the Oneida County Democratic Party and an active member of the Marathon County Democratic Party. He also loved the many family get-togethers through the years enjoying the company and food.

Harry is survived by his wife, Mary, of Weston; sons, Dave (Amber) Peters of Kronenwetter and Phil Peters of Weston; grandson, Connor Peters; sisters, Nancy Snare of James Creek, Pa. and Cynthia Keene of Wausau. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Harry's family would like to thank Aspirus Comfort Care and Hospice Services and the Aspirus Regional Cancer Center for their compassionate care. Special thank you to family/friends who went above and beyond during Harry's illness: Ila and Adrian; Lee, Stacy and Girls; Edward; and Joe and Lisa. Your kindness and concern during this difficult time will never be forgotten.

At Harry's request, there will be no services. He wished his family/friends to remember him as he was before his illness.

Harold and I were in a high school play together (forget the name). He was a kind, gentle person and enjoyable to be with.
