Husband of Nancy (nee McKinney) Peters; father of Christopher, Anthony, Matthew, Lawrence (Sandy), Stephen, Clare Wein (Mark) and Grace Holter (Tim); grandfather of Anthony Peters, Ben Kasun, Ashton Mannion, Colin Holter, Gabriella Holter, Abigail Holter, Matthew Peters, John Peters, Robert Peters, Zachary Wein, Zachary Weimer, Cody Weimer (Sarah), Trevor Weimer; great-grandfather of Connor Weimer; son of the late Carl and Margaret (Nee Sims) Peters; brother of the late Charles Peters. Born in Allen Park, Michigan on November 21, 1930, Jerry served in the Navy, Korean War active duty. He received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Journalism at the University of Michigan and continued to earn a Masters Degree in Urban Planning at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Jerry came to Milwaukee in 1960 to work for the Milwaukee Journal (state desk). Further, he was Communications Director at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Editor at Sheboygan Press, and Director of Public Relations for Milwaukee Public Libraries. He retired in 1995. East Shore Properties, a family business of property rentals, was started at that time with his sons. Jerry's inquisitive mind and quick memory made him the family encyclopedia and information go-to. He enjoyed finding out about people's lives and backgrounds. He loved geography and travel, buying into a beach house in Costa Rica and building a cabin in Greenbush. Concerts, movies, theatre and Broadway musicals were favorite pastimes. Memories can be shared by family and friends at an open house on Sunday, August 17, from 1 until 4 pm at the family home.
