Darin Daniel Peters, born July 23, 1975 in Winkler, MB to Cornelius and Helen Peters.  He was the youngest of 15 children. He passed away July 20, 2023 at the age of 47. He was loved and will be greatly missed by his remaining 12 siblings.

Helen (Werner) Taulien, Brett Peters, Abe (Susan) Peters, Suzanne Banman, Mary Peters, William Peters, Elizabeth Boille, Hank Peters, Cheri Schroeder, Jake (Cathy) Peters, Dave (Theresa) Peters, Nancy(Rob) Zenari

He was predeceased by his father, Cornelius Peters, Mother, Helen Peters, Sister, Nadine Peters, Sister, Margaret Wood, and son, Dillon Moon.

He was born in Winkler and lived in Roseisle, MB on a farm until he was 9 with his dad and siblings.  At this young age, his dad passed away and Darin and Nancy moved to Barrhead, AB to live with their older brother, Abe and his wife Susan and their two children Rebekah and Daniel. This is where he spent his childhood.

Darin loved hunting, and everything to do with guns.  As a child that was all he would live for.  He knew all the statistics about guns-velocity, size of bullet, speed it traveled. No one would be able to challenge him on these facts.  He used his pellet gun to shoot anything in sight.  He earned the nickname “robin killer” by his brothers. He also liked to go fishing with his brothers.

When he was a young adult, he moved to St. Albert to live with his brothers, Dave and Jake.  He worked construction with them for many years, off and on.  He moved back and forth between St. Albert and Barrhead. 

Darin loved his siblings very much.  He counted Abe as his dad and Susan as his mama. In his final days he was very upset that Abe was very sick and spent many nights crying and wondering how he would make it when he passed.

He was a very kind and caring person.  He would help anyone, even at his own expense.  He had a very crazy sense of humor and tried to make everyone laugh.  His great love was for cats.  Until he left home, he had a cat named Rainbow that he spoiled. The rest of his life, he always had multiple cats.

Darin had a son, Dillon, that he loved very much.  He didn’t stay together with his mother, but as he grew up he tried to have a relationship with him. When he died, it was almost more than Darin could take.

Even though Darin struggled most of his life with an addiction to alcohol, he had a deep rooted faith in God.  He liked to listen to Billy Graham and Chuck Swindol and gospel music. Two of the people he would listen to were Jimmy Swaggart and Hank Williams Sr. He had memorized much scripture as a child and never forgot it.
