Ronald Peters

June 11, 1954 — December 8, 2022


Ronald “Ron” Peters, 68, of Metropolis, passed away Thursday, December 8, 2022 at the Ray and Kay Eckstein Hospice Care Center in Paducah.

Ron and Cindy, his wife, were avid travelers.  If they were anywhere near a National Park, they would make the detour to visit and get their National Park Passport stamped.  Ron’s favorite park was the Black Canyon of the Gunnison in Colorado.  If it was a driving adventure, he was all for going.  His one goal was to have traveled in all 48 contiguous states.  The last state, Michigan, was completed at the end of September of this year.  Ron and Cindy also loved visiting casinos.  If there was a Casino near a National Park, even better. Las Vegas was a destination Ron had visited the last several years during the World Series of Poker.  He did not go to participate in the tournament but to match his wits against some of the best players of the world who busted and would come to cash games.  Ron spent his time at his home on the tractor keeping the trails mowed and enjoying the wildlife as they would visit up by the house.  He would feed the mated pair of geese who return every year to nest.

Ron is survived by his wife of 45 years, Cindy. He is also survived by his Mother-in-law, Donna Meisinger, two brother-in-laws, Terry Meisinger and wife, Dale, of West Virginia and Greg Meisinger and wife, Lisa, of Tennessee; three nieces, Leah Davenport, Kathryn Simon and husband, Tim, and Shannon Meisinger; one nephew, Scott Meisinger; and one great-nephew, Jaedon Sanders, all of Tennessee.

Ron was preceded in death by his parents, Roy and Veldah Peters, two brothers, David and Kelly, and his father-in-law, Carroll Meisinger.

No services are scheduled at this time.

The family request expressions of sympathy be sent to Project Hope Humane Society, P,O. Box 125, Metropolis, IL 62960.  Project Hope is a no-kill facility where 2 of Ron’s girls, Sandy and Tippy, were adopted.

The family wants to extend their gratitude to the Mercy Health Home Hospice nurses, Michael and Debra. Thank you so very much for taking care of both of us.  As you cared for Ron’s needs, you were also watching out for Cindy’s needs.  To the staff of the Ray and Kay Eckstein Hospice Care Center in Paducah, you provided excellent care for Ron during his days and hours.  And, you also provided Cindy with the emotional support she needed as Ron left on his final adventure.  Thank you also to Dr. Oliver and staff where Ron has been given care for many years.You all helped us recognize when it was time to call Hospice. May God Bless each and everyone of you for the mission you have undertaken for your life’s work.

Lindsey Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
