Paul Jeffrey Peters

December 11th, 1966 - April 24th, 2024

Paul Peters, aged 57, passed away on April 24th, 2024 at his home in Post Falls, Idaho.

Paul was born in La Crosse, Wisconsin on December 11th, 1966, and adopted as an infant by Marshall and Elizabeth Peters. The new family spent time in Saint Paul, Minnesota, and Kansas City, Kansas before settling in Coeur‘d Alene, Idaho in 1976. 

Paul graduated in Coeur d’Alene High School’s class of 1985, where he made many lifelong friendships and enjoyed his time as a wide receiver on the varsity football team. An avid sports fan, his passion for football never ceased, whether he was watching or participating. One of Paul’s prevailing pastimes was cheering on his favorite teams, the Dallas Cowboys, the Los Angeles Lakers, and the New York Yankees.

He enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1985 and was stationed at Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, North Carolina for training when he sustained a debilitating neck injury in a vehicle accident, resulting in an honorable discharge. After being discharged from the USMC, he served two years in the Army Reserves, then traveled around the US, eventually finding his way back to north Idaho, where he worked as a custom finish carpenter for many years and drove truck between Idaho and North Dakota.

Paul is predeceased by his father, Marshall “Pete” Peters, aunts, Helen “Billie” Schroepfer, Audrey Kelley, and Joyce Discher, and uncles, Merle Jones and Thomas Jones. He is survived by his mother, Elizabeth “Betty” Peters, brother, Jon Peters, nephew, Travis Schierman, nieces, Emily Peters and Holly Peters, aunts, Dorothy Rasch and Harriet Mayfield, cousins, and grandnieces.

He will be remembered fondly by those who knew him as a loving uncle to both given and chosen family, a friend to all, a helping hand, and a great storyteller. 

A celebration of life is planned for friends and family on Sunday, June 9th from 1 to 4 PM at the Eagles Lodge at 209 Sherman Ave in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
