Obituary of Danny William Peters

Danny William Peters of Accoville, WV Danny William Peters went to his final resting place, to walk the street’s of gold with his Mother Irene, in the early hours of May 26th, 2022, leaving from Logan Regional Medical Center at Logan. He was born on May 20th, 1949, at Three Forks, the son of the late Henry and Irene (Osborne) Peters. In addition to his parents, Danny was preceded in death by his grandparents, Raymond and Allie Osborne and Aubrey and Annie Peters; his loving uncles, Hebert, Sebert, Raymond Jr., Nathan, Roy Gene; and his aunt, Anna Blevins. Danny was 1967 graduate of Man High School. After graduation, he shortly departed to Alaska to begin his military career. Danny was an Army veteran who took tremendous pride in his military service. Danny reached the rank of SP5 in just two years of military service. After his honorable discharge from the military, he attended vocational school and earned the title of “painter” and “dry wall finisher.” Along with these accomplishments, he also attended Southern WV Community and Technical College where he obtained an Associates Degree in Applied Science. Danny retired as a mechanic from Bandmill Coal Company and also had worked at Pittston Coal Company. His mining career spanned over 30 years and he was a proud member of UMWA local 1971. Danny always had an open mind for knowledge and continued to learn anything he could throughout his life. A true patriot, Danny loved his country and the American flag, he always stood for what he believed. Before his death, Danny accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior. He always put God above all spending every night before bed in prayer. His favorite Bible verse was John 14:2-4 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. Danny was a hard working family man, who made anyone who encountered him smile. His hard work was not only noted in a coal mine but at home as well. Danny had only one love throughout his entire life and that was his wife Dreama (Esque) Peters. Danny and Dreama met in 1977 and it was true love at first sight. He loved his family more than his own self. Most of his days consisted of watching his favorite TV shows and doing yard work with his wife Dreama. Although he liked to relax after retiring, he always found something to keep him busy. He loved to keep himself, along with anything he owned, in top notch condition. Danny took pride in his yard and home always looking incredible; you would often see him on his Troy-Built riding lawn mower, mowing his yard on hot summer days. Danny was always the life of the party, he enjoyed every holiday but his favorite was Christmas. He loved to dress up for Christmas and spend it at his mother’s home with all of his family. Danny was a hero to all of his family and was the cement holding it together. Danny loved his family dearly, but one person always held a special place in his heart. His mother Irene, was not his a mother to Danny but also his best friend. He visited his mother everyday, and enjoyed drinking coffee with her every morning over loving conversations. Along with conversation, he attended to any need his mother had until her death. Danny’s final day was spent with his Uncle Donald Osborne visiting the Osborne Family Cemetery at Curtis. He enjoyed his last day like it was his first, sitting on the back porch talking with family for hours. Donald will never know how grateful we all are for Danny to spend his final day in such joy. It was almost as if all his problems left for the day, and he was the superman we all knew him to be. Those left to cherish his memory are his wife of 44 years, Dreama (Esque) Peters; his daughter, Shannon Browning who took such loving care of him; his son, Jason Peters; his grandson, Joshua Browning who was more like a son; his brothers, Gary Peters and Larry Peters, his Uncle Donald “Dilly” Osborne who was more of a brother; his Aunt Eilene (Raul) Arzola; his nephew, Jeff (Angie) Osborne; his cousin and best friend, Tony Lambert; childhood friend, James “Horse-Cat” Adkins; and our good neighbors, George and Dreama Baldridge. To my “baby” and best friend, I love the life we made and all the adventures we took; from riding the mountains, looking for Molly Moochers to walking in the park together. All of our long hours of back porch sitting watching the deer and squirrels, just me and you or with family. You have given me a wonderful life, you are my forever and you will always be in my heart babe, Love Dreama.
