Donald Wayne Peters went to be with his Lord and Savior on Monday, July 6, 2020 at his home in Luther at the age of 74 with his family by his side. Don was born September 11, 1945 to William Otis and Annie Lorean Peters in Maud, Oklahoma. He was raised in Luther, Oklahoma where he graduated from high school in 1964. Don married Donna Gayle Riley on September 13, 1965 and raised 4 children together. He was a welder and fabricator by trade. He worked hard and took pride in supporting his family. After retirement Don enjoyed sewing and making quilts for friends and family. He loved to entertain people with jokes.
Don had an unspoken faith in God and was a true believer in his Savior Jesus Christ. He was honest and forth right with everyone. His word was his bond and his handshakes were priceless.
