Michael A. Peters M.D. Obituary
Dr. Peters passed away on May 17, 2014. He was born on June 21, 1943, and reared in Chicago. Mike graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1965 and Northwestern University Medical School in 1969.
Upon completion of his Residency in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Northwestern Medical Center in 1975, he moved to San Diego, setting up a Plastic Surgery practice in downtown San Diego. He practiced at Scripps Mercy Hospital for 35 years. Throughout his career, he modestly donated his time and expertise overseas on volunteer surgical trips to Mexico, Palestine, India, Guatemala and most recently to Vietnam. He was part of the Smile Train trauma team that went to Haiti after the devastating earthquake in 2010.
A Rancho Santa Fe resident since 1977, he retired in 2010 and continued to enjoy his lifelong love of playing golf with his buddies at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club, making overseas surgical trips twice a year and spending as much time as possible loving his children and grandchildren.
He will be forever in the hearts of his wife, Laurie; twin sons, Michael and Jonathan; daughters-in-law, Kate and Gina; and three adoring grandchildren, Andrew 8, Charlie 6, and Natalie 3.
In lieu of flowers or cards, please make remembrances to Surgical Volunteers International at 65712 E. Mesa Ridge Court, Tucson, AZ 85739, or on their website www.surgicalvolunteers.org.
