William A. Peters, the son of Frank and Alice (Jensen) Peters, was born August 24, 1946 in Redwood Falls. He lived south of Redwood Falls on the family farm.
Bill received his elementary education in a country school, half a mile from where he lived up to second grade and then attended Redwood Falls School graduating in 1965. He spent six years in the National Guard. Bill farmed alongside his dad, starting his own custom farm business. Raising livestock was always the highlight of his farming.
On August 18, 1968 Bill married Kay (Okins) at the Presbyterian Church in Redwood Falls. They made their home in the country living half a mile from the main Peters farm, until 1990 then moved to the main farm site. To this marriage they had three children, William, Robert and Rebecca.
In Bill's school years he enjoyed wrestling and lettered for three years. In later years he enjoyed racing cars, after he retired from racing he enjoyed taking his wife and children to the races. Going to the rodeos in South Dakota was something the whole family enjoyed and camping at the rodeo grounds.
Bill was a member of the Cornerstone Christian Church for 59 years; he was baptized at 13 years old. Bill lived his life as a Christian and always tried to be fair in the business. A meal was never eaten at our home without praying.
He is survived by wife, Kay of Redwood Falls; sons Billy Peters of Redwood Falls, Bob (Kelly) Peters of Oliva and daughter Becky (Mike) Kleinhuizen of Redwood Falls; grandchildren; Abbie (fiance Nathan Genug) Peters, Maddie Peters of Oliva, Zak (fiance Amber Palmer) Kleinhuizen of Wabasso and Isabella Kleinhuizen of Redwood Falls.
William "Bill" was preceded in death by his parents Frank and Alice Peters; granddaughter Cassendra Peters; brother in-law Larry Okins and a very good friend Larry Roush.
Blessed be his memory.
