Rickey Peters

Rickey Peters, 58, of Concrete, passed away unexpectedly and joined his loving parents John and Martha (Caldwell) Peters on Jan. 15, 2013.

Rick was born in Japan and served in the Army from 1971 to 1977 during the Vietnam War.

Rick—or “Crazy Rick,” as he was known throughout the Skagit Valley—was always full of life and had a kind heart. He would always lend a helping hand, like dressing up as Rudolph with antlers and a red nose while delivering Christmas presents to family and friends.

Rick led a busy life fishing, crabbing, and digging clams with family and friends, and loved to work on computers.

Rick is survived by his wife Laura (Darsch) Peters; daughters Donna (Brent), Tanna (Joseph), Rosalee (Jack), and Melinda; sons Joshua, Michael, Rickey Jr., and Nathan; his beloved grandchildren James, Kaitlyn, and Kameryn; brothers Terry (Sandy), Randy, Jerry (Cindy), Jeff (Terri), Monty (Carolyn); sisters Dallas (Stone) and Mici (Jim); and many nieces and nephews.

Rickey was preceded in death by his parents, John and Martha Peters, older brother John Jr., and daughter Belinda.

Friends and family are cordially invited to a celebration of Rick’s life at the Sedro-Woolley Eagles on Feb. 7 from 1 to 3 p.m., to share memories with cake and coffee.
