Dan Peters, 44, went peacefully home to be with the Lord Oct. 27, 2009, after his long struggle with lung-brain cancer.
He was born in West Bend and lived in Hartford. He married Wendy Braatz then they resided in Fond du Lac.
He is joined with his father, Linus Peters, who passed away from cancer.
He is survived by his beloved wife, Wendy Braatz Peters; mother, Christine Peters; sister, Leah Peters; and daughter, Jazzelle Peters of West Bend.
Dan enjoyed racing at Slinger Speedway like his father did, he painted at RT Speed shop, he was a Harley enthusiast and he loved building model trains with such precision. He enjoyed working with his hands, had a very artistic eye and took much pride in his work. Dan loved the outdoors. He was a kind man, always helping others. He touched many lives with his beautiful spirit. Dan drove truck for M&M Concrete, Krebs and Laufer Trucking. Life will never be the same without “Dan the Man” on the job. He is deeply missed. He’s in heaven tinkering now.
Dan did not want a service at a funeral home. He wanted a party to celebrate his life at the Windover. Dan and Wendy ask family and friends to come to his celebration of life party on Saturday, Jan. 9, 2010, at the Windover Center for Arts, 51 Sheboygan St., downtown Fond du Lac, from noon until 4 p.m., with a service at 12:30 p.m. In lieu of Flowers Donations to “Danny’s Cancer Fund” at the Horicon Bank, 854 E.

“Dear Twinkle Toes you got five stars!” I love you.
