Steven Martin Peters went to be with the Lord on Sunday, May the 20th.
He was born on March 8th, 1958, in Aldershot, England to William E. Peters, a US Navy sailor and Pamela Peters, at the time, a British citizen. He came stateside at the age of 6 months. As a Navy brat, Steve lived in close proximity to his Father’s duty stations. Patuxent River Maryland, Memphis Tennessee, Jacksonville Florida, and eventually Sunnyvale California.
It was in Sunnyvale that he spent his formative years. Never far removed from adventure (often including a little mischief,) Steve enjoyed time with his family and friends in the mountains, at the beaches, bicycling, unicycling, motorcycling, water skiing and every chance he got, fishing on the local lakes and rivers.
He renounced his dual citizenship at the age of 17 and joined the U.S Army. His 3-years of service spent primarily as an infantryman stationed at Fort Ord near Monterrey California. It was in the Army that he most likely developed his love and respect for firearms. Steve moved up to the northwest after his discharge, living at times in Kennewick and Winslow, Washington, eventually settling in the LC Valley.
Steve graduated from LCSC with an AA in appliance repair, an education that he based his career on at various shops and eventually his own business, Steve’s Appliance Repair.
He married Brenda Peer in 1985, the marriage later ended in divorce. Steve married Norma Bartlett in 1995.
Steve was an avid outdoorsman, fisherman and hunter. He will be sorely missed by the animals he hunted. God only knows how many of them he missed…
As a young adult Steve had given his life to Christ and had been a member of the First Baptist Church in Clarkston. In the recent years he called Warner Avenue Alliance/CrossPoint Alliance home. He had commented to someone on the day of his accident he was looking forward to being in church the next day. Instead he got front row seat his first Heavenly church service!
Steve never met a stranger. Someone recently commented, "I liked Steve the moment I met him." He had so many friends he loved and was very thankful for. If you shot a game of pool, played a game of crib, hunted with him, or got into a verbal joust you knew his competitive good nature. He didn’t mind losing because he knew he’d eventually get his chance to win.
In his last years Steve acquired a renewed appreciation for the fact that life is precious, health is a gift, and God is always good.
He is survived by his wife, Norma, his son, Daniel, stepdaughter, Charity Goodell, stepsons, Travis Bartlett and Will Johnson and 4 Grandchildren, his mother Pamela Riffle, stepdad, Richard Riffle, his brother, Brian Peters, his nieces Lindsey Pinckney, Brittany Peters, Stephanie Peters, and countless friends. His chocolate lab Izzy continues to guard the family home. Steve was preceded in death by his father, William Peters.
A celebration of his life will be held Friday, May 25th at 11:00 a.m. at CrossPoint Alliance Church, 1330 Powers Ave, Lewiston, Idaho
