Bob was the second of three generations to be born in Fraser Lake, B.C.
Bob was predeceased by his parents Theresa Elizabeth Angly Peters and Keith Anderson Peters, and sister in-law Shirley Peters.
He is survived by his wife Jacquie, his children; Jeff (Lynn), Joni (John), Bruce (Lisa), and Garrett (Carole); grandchildren Tiffany, Wyatt, Claude, Steve, Jacob, and Jada; his brother Gordon, and his children Elaine, Doug, and Denise (Ed); as well as numerous cousins.
Bob and Jacquie were married in 1959 and the following year moved onto the ranch at Fraser Lake, where they spent the next 35 years raising cattle and kids, before moving to the Darfield ranch.
He was gentle, kind, caring, strong, proud, positive and uncomplaining to the end.
He will be missed dearly.
