Kevin A. Peters

December 16, 1983 - February 18, 2017

Kevin A Peters, born Dec. 16, 1983 died peacefully Saturday February 18, 2017. Kevin is survived by his mother, Vivian Peters, his father Charles Peters, his brother Mike (Stephanie) Peters and his sister Laura Missey, along with his nieces and nephews, Madison, Ethan and Emma Peters and William Missey

Kevin served his country in the US Army serving two tours in Iraq and 1 tour in Korea. He was a sniper during the war and was awarded many medals, accommodations and most proudly the Bronze Star. After the army Kevin was an accomplished border patrol agent in Nogales, AZ.

But who was the real Kevin Peters?

He was the most kind-hearted human being. There was nothing he wouldn’t help out with or take care of for anyone, no questions asked. He could light up a room and certainly bring life to any party.

His sense of humor was a constant reminder not to take life too serious and his smile infectious. He never knew a stranger and everyone that met him, loved him immediately. Any one that knew him well, also knew he was the most stubborn individual you ever met. But you still loved him.

How could you not, he would fight to the death for anyone in need, anyone he loved.
The things Kevin loved most were his family, his friends and his country. He served us all exceptionally well.

He will be missed by many.
