Sep 30, 1961 – July 23, 2018

 

A celebration of the life of Mickey Ray Peters was held on 2 p.m. Friday, July 27, at the Honeyville United Methodist Church.

The people that knew Mickey well will tell you he was a big man with a big heart and soul; a great sense of humor, quick witted, beautiful smile and a contagious laugh. He had a temper too and would let you know when you crossed the line, but a quick forgiver. Mickey deeply loved his family, especially his momma and his dog. He enjoyed sitting with friends, driving fast cars, motorcycles, target shooting, an occasional smoke and loud music. He was an artist and could draw and paint masterpieces. He was good people, knew no stranger and would give his last dollar to anyone that needed it; giving quite a few dollars in his life. He took some hard knocks that tested his faith, but persevered.

Mickey came into the world on Sep 30, 1961, from Athens, Greece. He traversed across three continents to spend most of his 56 years in Gulf county Florida until God called him home on July 23, 2018. He was preceded in death by loving parents, Travis and Joyce Peters; grandparents, Willie Mae and Dewey Pelham; survived by his favorite sister, Janet Peters Covarrubio, Ernest Covarrubio (in-law); nephew, Joshua; nieces, Christina, Alexandrya and Dallas; his favorite dog, Boomer; aunt, Barbara Mapes; cousins, Ann Nunnery, Jon Rector, Terri Carter, Donna Stitz, Rick Mapes, Ronnie Mapes, Kim Pelham Howell, Angie Pelham Thompson, Bobby Smith, Linda Ramsey. For his many Wewa friends, neighbors, church family, customers and past acquaintances, stop by and retell the stories he can no longer tell, be good to his family and remember him fondly. Rest In Peace sweet brother, cousin, uncle, nephew, friend!

Services were under the direction of Comforter Funeral Home.
