I was sorry to find out about Al's passing today at the Williamston Memorial Day observation. I always enjoyed talking with Al at Felpausch, at church or at a football game. He will certainly be missed.

I love you Dad, and I will miss you every single day of my life. I hope you know the impact you made in the lives of so many people. You were, and are, so loved. Thank you for showing me what a good husband is by the example you set for us in the way you loved our mother. We could not have asked for a better dad or grandpa for our children. You taught my sister and me so much -- how to be independent, how to fish, how to change the oil in the car and lawn mower, and so much more.. more than I could possibly write here. But what I loved most about you was your strength and your positive spirit -- you greeted each day with a smile and a joke, and spent so much of your time in service to others. I promise to do my very best to honor you the same way with my own life. I love you, Daddy. See you later, alligator. <3

Al will be missed by the Williamston Community. He always had a minute or two to talk to you. He stopped by my office and we traded un-circulated quarters for circulated ones! He was a kind and gentle man who enjoyed people all over!

Al was an amazing man. We always looked forward to the summer cookouts he held at Feldpaush and seeing him at the games. He was loved by the entire Williamston community and will be missed deeply.

To Al's Family,
Thank you for sharing him with me and so many other people of Williamston. He was always smiling and would always take a hug! I would run into him at the gate of the games and stand and talk. He was supportive of the Williamston Boy Scout Troop 63 in which I'm a member. We would talk about up coming Eagles and what their projects were going to be. He had a wounderful gentle soul and helped me become a more positive person. He will be greatly missed! My deepest sympathies go to you during this time.

I'm so glad to have known Al Peters. As a client and a friend, but more importantly, as the type of person that our nation is built on. He was always there, whether it was work or service to the Williamston sports teams--he was there, working with a smile and making a difference in his smiling, thoughtful manner. You'll be missed Al.
