Douglas L. "Doug" Peters, 64, Independence, Missouri, passed away Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020 at North Care Hospice House in North Kansas City, Missouri. Doug was born on Jan. 31, 1956 in Leavenworth, Kansas to Leonard Woodson and Darlene Lucille (Williams) Peters.

Doug was a member of the Woods Chapel United Methodist Church, and married Sharla Williams on Feb. 14, 1982 at the Christian Church in Camden Point, Missouri.
He was larger than life, always smiling and laughing. He was an avid fan of the Chiefs and Mizzou, and an even bigger fan of all things Disney. He enjoyed travelling the world, including going on Disney cruises. He also liked tinkering with antiques, and loved spending time with his family.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
Doug is survived by his wife; son, Bryan (Ashton) Peters, Lee’s Summit, Missouri; siblings, Lenny Peters, Bret Peters, and Darcie (Jim) Adams, all of Lansing, Kansas; and numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
