Peters, Owen - Husband, father, son, brother, grandfather passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family after a battle with cancer at Hospice in Barrie. Owen was predeceased by his beloved father Felix, sister Lorna and brother Wayne. Survived by his mother Lorraine and his sister Wendy (Paul) Coish. Husband to Marilyn and father to Todd (Laura), loving Papie to his grandchildren Trent, Dylann and Carter. Uncle to Tammy, Wayne, Nick, Taylor, Chelsey, Margo, April, Karen and Chris, and Alex and his many great nieces and nephews.

A big thank you to all the amazing nurses and PSW’s, Spiritual Care Co-ordinator and volunteers at Hospice Simcoe whose loving care, compassion and respect to Owen and our family made his final journey memorable.
