Our sympathy to the Peters family in the loss of Bill Peters. We have a lot of good memories from growing up in Richland Hills.
Byron, John, and Gloria Gibson Metts
Bill Peters was our neighbor in Richland Hills many years ago, and he and Shirley were lifelong friends of my parents. My brothers and I loved to swim in the Peters' pool. Good people. For some reason, I was too dumb as a kid to learn about all his military accomplishments for our country. In reading the obituary, I realized another bond that Bill and my dad had: service in the Army Air Corp. Bill sent my dad a letter at Christmas a couple of years ago, so I know they remained friends till the end. We extend condolences to the Peters boys from the Kelley kids.
Mr. Peters was also my first boss at General Dynamics after college. I owe him a lot for helping me start a carreer as an engineer. I have great memorys of those years in the ECS group on the F-16 program. Mr. Peters was a great person to know and work for! My condolences to his family!
Bill was my first boss when I hired into General Dynamics straight out of college in 1978. He was an incredible boss and man. I recall one business trip with Bill where we sat in a bar in Los Angeles as he told me amazing stories of his flying days in WWII. I learned so much from Bill. He was a special man.
Bill Peters was my first boss at General Dynamics. I was his Steno for several years and he was such a great guy to work for. He loved his family and talked about all of you often. So sorry for your loss. Donna Haynie
