PETERS, ROY - August 7, 1935 - July 27, 2014. On Sunday morning July 27th, Roy Peters' passing was felt deeply among the entire Open Arms Care family. Roy held the distinct honor of becoming the first person to ever become part of the OAC family 24 years ago. Roy took fashion cues from no one. Looking "dapper" was important to him and he especially enjoyed accentuating his outfits with a hat. He could often be found relaxing in his recliner and had a life-long love affair with coffee, ice cream, and cottage cheese. Before his passing Roy forged a 78 year trail of teaching laughter, generosity, and compassion to those around him. The impact he leaves on thousands of people will not fade with his passing. Rather, those who were fortunate enough to share time with Roy will pay forward his example and positively impact generations to come. The visitation is from 12:30p until 1:30p on Wednesday, July 30, 2014 at Click Funeral Home and Cremations, 9020 Middlebrook Pike, Knoxville, TN 37923. The funeral service will immediately follow at 1:30p also at Click Funeral Home.
