David Abram Peters

1962 - 2019 

Dave Peters, 57, of Winkler, MB, passed away on Wednesday October 16, 2019 at Boundary Trails Health Centre. 

Dave was born to John and Helena Peters on April 16, 1962. He lived in the Burwalde School District, attending a small school just outside of Winkler. He married Wendy Hiebert on June 29, 1984, and they had three children together. Dave was a hard worker – not only a very skilled backhoe operator, but farmer as well. When he wasn’t working, he loved to ice-fish, visit with friends, and drive his motorcycle and snowmobile. Dave was nothing if not determined, and he lived his life on his own terms. Even after having a severe stroke in 2012, he never gave up. Right up until his death seven years later, he was still regaining his strength and abilities. He worked hard to get his driver's license back, and he and his dogs enjoyed many hours going on long car rides together. He learned how to fix wind-up clocks just by studying them physically and was able to work on them with only one functioning hand. Later, he began figuring out how to power various devices in his home using solar and wind power. His last act was to set up another wind turbine atop his roof, when he died suddenly as a result of his life-long heart complications. 

He is survived by his wife, Wendy, his children, Dave Jr., Tracy (Jonathan) and Michelle. He is also survived by his mother and his two brothers, one sister and their families. He was predeceased by his father, John A. Peters. 

A private funeral service at 2:00 p.m. on Monday October 21, 2019 at Wiebe Funeral Home in Winkler with interment at Westridge Memorial Gardens. If friends so desire, donations may be made in Dave's memory to Katie Cares.
