In Loving Memory of Ben J. Peters

Ben was born in Holland and moved to Canada when he was a young boy. He spent years in Winnipeg where he worked in the grocery business before being transferred to Kenora. He found his home on

“The Bay” where he and Dawn spent many years entertaining and this is where he spent the remainder of his years.

Ben was predeceased by his wife Dawn and parents George and Tinie Peters.

He is survived by his daughters Stephanie (Mark) and Shannon (Patrick) and grandchildren Blaine, Aubrey, Wyatt and Avery and his close friends and neighbours who became his family over the years.

As per Ben’s wishes there will be no service. A private Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
