ForeverMissed
Charles “Chuck” “Charlie” Edward Peters, 64, of Rolling Meadows, IL, formerly of Round Lake Beach, IL passed Monday, May 31, 2021.

Chuck was born to Edward and Mildred (Krohn) Peters, October 3, 1956, in Elgin, Illinois.  He attended Rolling Meadows High School and enjoyed being part of the Mustangs football and wrestling teams.  He graduated in 1974.  He married his first wife Diane Peters (Williams) in 1975.  Together they raised 7 children, and were foster parents to over 40.  He later married his current wife, Jamie Peters (Pacay) in 2006, and together they raised their daughter until his death.

Chuck was a caring husband, loving father, cherished grandfather, proud great-grandfather and amazing friend to many.  As his children grew, each of his 8 children would joke and say they were his favorite, but the truth is Chuck’s family meant everything to him, and they were his proudest accomplishment.  Chuck was a carbide tool and die maker for 38 years until he retired in 2014, as well as an avid bowler and golfer.

He leaves as his legacy, his beloved wife, Jamie. His eight children, Heather (Chris) Edwards, Shannon (Ernie) Molina, Jason Peters, Julie (Jason) Cottingham, Korin Peters, Jayson Peters, Mark Peters, and Savannah Peters.  His eight grandchildren, Shawn, Sierra, Anna, Eddie, Noah, Hailey, Lucy, and Brianna, and his great‑granddaughter, Elayah.  He also leaves to cherish his memory, his two sisters, Betty (Dan) Loring and Charlene (Jay) Carrick, and two brothers Wayne Blume and John Blume.  His mother-in-law, Joey Pacay and his father-in-law John (Barbara) Pacay.  His brother-in-law, Jeremy Pacay (Brenda Watkins) as well as numerous nieces and nephews and his fur kids, Bugaboo, Pikachu, and Piper.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Edward and Mildred, brothers Dean Blume, Chris Blume, and Vance Blume, and his sister Phyllis Miller.

In his leisure time, Chuck enjoyed bowling and his proudest memory was scoring a nearly perfect game, just 1 pin shy of 300.  Chuck enjoyed golf and worked part time for years at the Round Lake Area Park District’s Renwood golf course.  Chuck also coached and played for his church softball league at the former Softball City in Hainesville, IL as well as coached a women’s softball league in Rolling Meadows.  Chuck also enjoyed cheering on his favorite sports teams, the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago Bears.

A celebration of Chuck’s life will be held on Tuesday, July 27, 2021 from 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm.  The evening will begin with Pastor Randy Rozelle from St. Peter Lutheran Church in Arlington Heights leading in a short service, followed by a gathering of family and friends for storytelling and sharing fond memories of Chuck.  This event will take place at Chuck’s “second home,” Arlington Lanes Bowling Alley, 3435 N Kennicott Ave, Arlington Heights, IL 60004.  A private interment will be held for family only on another date.

The family would like to thank their friends and family for the multitude of prayers for Chuck while he was ill, and the continuous prayers and support for the family.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Chuck’s memory can be made to the family to help with funeral expenses, or to Illinois Special Olympics in honor of his youngest son, Mark.  https://www.soill.org/ways-to-give/

The Peters were our next door neighbor (and family friends) on Grouse lane (Rolling Meadows) when I was a kid. It was kinda like living next to your crazy fun uncle. Chuck was a true force of nature that I was always happy to see at the bowling alley over the years.

I lived next door to Chuck as a child. Chuck would terrorize us smaller kids often attacking out backyard campouts. When he grew up he played cards with my parents sharing R rated jokes and his infectious laugh. All of my memories are 40 plus years old. Chuck left that kind of impression on you. I will miss him and his laugh.

I knew Chuck from our early days in Rolling Meadows. I played football with him and we bowled in the same league several times. He was always quite a nice guy and loved sports.
Peace and prayers to you and your family.
