Eugene H. "Shorty" Peeters, 90, Little Chute, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family May 19, 2006, at St. Paul Home, Kaukauna. He was born October 10, 1915, in Little Chute son of Stephen and Dina (Dercks) Peeters. Eugene married Bernice Kappell on May 3, 1941, in Little Chute and she preceded him in death April 3, 2006. He was a member of St. John Nepomucene Catholic Chuch, Little Chute, and Fox Valley Golf Club. He was also a member of the Jacob Coppus American Legion Post #258, Little Chute. A humble man, he loved God, family, friends, country, nature and all of God's creatures. He served his country during World War II, knowing he would miss his wife and young family at home. Returning home from the war, he started his own business as a painting contractor, which he successfully ran for 40 years. His business beliefs were to treat his customers fairly, work hard, and give them the best value for their money. He loved to dance, he enjoyed the outdoors, golfing, fishing, hunting and was an experienced trapper. Family times were the most precious, whether they were packing up to go ice fishing, the beach, or just visiting on the porch, rocking on the glider.
Eugene is survived by his sons, John (Kitty) Peeters; Chuck (Kim) Peeters; Joe (Barb) Peeters; daughters: Mary (Robert) Elrick; Pat (Jerome) Diedrick; Amy (Jeff) McLaughlin; Lisa (Shane Jentz)Peeters. He is further survived by 23 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren; two brothers and four sisters-in-law.
Funeral services will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 24, 2006 at St. John Nepomucene Catholic Church, Little Chute, with Rev. Patrick Beno officiating. Interment will be in St. John Cemetery, Little Chute. Military rites will be conducted by the Coppus American Legion Post #258, Little Chute following the mass.
Verkuilen Funeral Home, Little Chute, was in charge of arrangements.
