Douglas- Robert F. Peters, 87, passed peacefully on Sat. Aug. 10, 2019 at his residence intending to complete his daily routine.

Born in Sutton on July 12, 1932 Bobby was the son of Percy and Nancy (Casey) Peters and has been a lifelong resident of Douglas.

We are sadden to hear of Bob's passing. He was a great guy and neighbor when we lived there. He once told us that our dog, Skippy, would hear him coming up the road and stop him so he could pat his head. Our sincere sympathy to everyone. He will be missed by many but not forgotten. Rest in peace, Bob.
