Alan Lowell Peters was just 52 years old when he passed away suddenly on Tuesday Sept 13, 2016. In life he was kind, generous, funny and always independent. Most of us think of him as irreverent. A person who wasn't afraid to skewer a few sacred cows – sometimes to make an important point, sometimes just for the heck of it.
Born in Cincinnati (and a lifelong Reds fan), on November 1,1963, Alan went to high school in Moorestown, New Jersey until his family moved to the DC area where he attended Good Counsel High School. Since the day he graduated from the University of Michigan he always worked for himself, employing others and helping many along the way. He started a small business in DC called DC Documents, but it suffered the fate of many other Tech Businesses and 2005, his business model was obsolete. At that point he switched to start Petes Painting - painting houses in the DC area.
Alan was a friend and teacher to many. He loved to travel and he loved playing sports – skateboarding, skiing, football, baseball, sailing – the wilder the better – and he had a knack for making it all look effortless. He was a natural teacher and could spend hours teaching a kid to throw a football, get up on a wind surfer, or do tricks on a skateboard, usually while imparting a good dose of his own idiosyncratic world view. It always made an impression.
His father Alan W. Peters preceded him, but those who are left behind include his mother Peggy Collier Peters, sisters Dana Peters Manley and Susanna Peters Wallace, and his much loved wife Angie (Angustia) Tomas Peters – who will miss him greatly. He loved, above all things, to take care of Angie the best he could and to see her happy and laughing.
He will also be missed by many friends and relatives. Brothers-in-law - Charlie Wallace and Martin Manley will miss his place at the table. Niece - Cecilia Wallace and Nephews - Sam Wallace and Raphael Manley. Aunts and Uncles - Danny and Judy Collier, Melanie, Guy and June Peters. And many cousins – Robin Collier, Adaire Hiestand, Chris and Kay Doan, Carrie and Julia McAllister, Elliot and Amanda Bambic, Genesis and Corinne Peters, and Vance and Wade Banker. Finally, Angie's family in the Philippines, though he never got to meet them in person, loved him even over Skype, and will miss him greatly.
