Gregory Joseph Peeters

February 11, 1949 ~ November 16, 2017 (age 68)

Gregory J. Peeters, age 68, of Little Chute, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Thursday, November 16, 2017. He was born in Little Chute on February 11, 1949, son of the late James and Ida (Verstegen) Peeters. On March 1, 1986, Greg married Cindy Kufahl. He retired as a maintenance welder and mill fire chief in 2011, after 40 years working at various paper mills. Greg gave 30 years of dedicated service to the Little Chute Fire Department as an Assistant Chief and Training Officer, retiring in 2001.  Greg enjoyed his retirement by spending time at the family cottage on Lindquist Lake, feeding the deer, and spending time outdoors in the woods and on the water. He also enjoyed traveling, biking, camping, woodworking and spending many hours outside doing yardwork.  Time spent with his family was his greatest joy. Greg was a very proud father, grandfather and great grandfather.
