Robert “Bob” H. Peters

Oct. 9, 1938 - July 5, 2013

BELLEVUE — Robert “Bob” H. Peters, 74, of Bellevue, passed away Friday, July 5, 2013, at Unity Point Health/Finley Hospital in Dubuque.

A Funeral Service will be held at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday morning, July 9, 2013, at First Presbyterian Church in Bellevue. Pastor Gene Beinke will officiate. Burial will be in the Church Cemetery. Visitation for Bob will be held from 3:30 – 7:00 p.m. Monday evening at the Hachmann Funeral Home & Cremation Service and again Tuesday morning after 9:30 a.m. at the church.

Bob was born on October 9, 1938 in Dubuque, Iowa, son of Stephen and Catherine (Klein) Peters. He married Shirley Krabbenhoft on October 12, 1958.

Bob served in the United States Navy. After the military, he worked for Caradco and later John Deere. He was employed with John Deere for 30 years retiring in 1990, many of those years as a Patternmaker. Bob was an extremely hard worker. In addition to working at Deere, he and Shirley bought Shady Haven, a river resort in Bellevue, and ran this business from 1983-1990. In 1989, Bob and Shirley opened Bellevue Boat and Marine. In 2001, they sold this business, and he and Shirley spent winters in Alamo, Texas.

Bob’s motto was, “do it right the first time”. He was a perfectionist and rarely had time to rest. When he did find spare time he enjoyed playing the guitar, he even gave lessons. Bob was a member of “The Ramblers”; they played many dances over many years and rotating members. He later played with Del and the Country Gentlemen. Bob was a charter member of the Bellevue Ambulance with 10 years of service.

Bob had many hobbies; he enjoyed spending time on the river fishing, boating, swimming, and water skiing. He also enjoyed woodworking, gardening, playing euchre, and spending time with his children and grandchildren.

Those left to honor his memory include his wife of 54 Years, Shirley Peters, of Bellevue; four children, Cindy (Bob) Wagner, of Bellevue, Susan (Jeff) Kearney, of Roanoke, Texas, Wayne (Carol) Peters, of Bellevue and Dan (Cindy) Peters, of Beloit, Wisconsin; 10 grandchildren, Kelly (Nick) Hart, Tony (Renee) Wagner, Victoria Wagner, Shelly (Todd) Lambert, Sean Kearney, Ben Peters, Anna Kearney, and Thomas, Evan, and Kaitlyn Peters; two great grandchildren, Nicole and Chloe Lambert, and one on the way; and sister in-law, Adelle (George, deceased) Peters.

He is preceded in death by his parents; brother, George; and two sisters, Stella Peters and Jean Strand.

The family would like to thank the Finley ICU doctors and nurses and pastor Gene Beinke for the special care and compassion shown to Bob.
