Obituary

Paul Peters
August 28, 1951 to July 23, 2018

Paul Peters, long-time resident of Keg River, Alberta beloved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather and brother, went home to his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, on July 23, 2018 at the age of 66 years after a struggle with lung cancer.
Paul was born to Henry and Susanna Peters on August 28, 1951, in La Crete, Alberta. He was the oldest of eight siblings and grew up in the community surrounded by family and friends. He married Elizabeth Doerksen on July 19, 1975, and together they raised four wonderful sons.
Paul’s love of horses was evident from a very young age. He and Elizabeth moved their family to different areas in Alberta and BC as he spent much of their early years together working on farms and ranches.
But stronger than his love for horses was his heart after God and his love for the Word of God. As a young boy of ten years old working the fields for his dad on that old Oliver tractor that now sits in his son’s yard, he felt the call of God on his life to preach the Gospel.
The last 26 years of his life were devoted to preaching the gospel in the community of Keg River, Paddle Prairie and Carcajou, pioneering a church work there and helping people become established and grounded in the hope of the Gospel of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Paul will be missed and lovingly remembered by his wife of 43 years, Elizabeth; his 4 sons, Jonathan (Vonnie), Jeremy (Bryony), James (Sarah), and Joel (Claudia); 15 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren; 2 brothers and 5 sisters; and numerous relatives and friends.
Funeral service for Paul will be held at La Crete Christian Fellowship in La Crete, Alberta, on Tuesday, July 31, at 11:00 AM. Interment to follow at the Bergthaler Mennonite Cemetery, La Crete, Alberta.
