Published 7:20 am Friday, April 5, 2013


Freddie Peters Sr. was born in Bogalusa to Hilton Peters and Edgie Lee Peters on May 20, 1954. God in his infinite wisdom selected him to depart his life on Sunday, March 31, 2013, at his home in Bogalusa.

He joined New Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Varnado as a child. He attended school at Varnado High School. In 1979, he enlisted in the United States Army, where he retired as staff sergeant. He went to work for the Frigidaire Co. in Edison, N.J. for several years. He later moved back to his home state of Louisiana, where he worked as a correctional officer for WCI in Angie.

Freddie loved to work with his hands and was known to do odd jobs for whoever was in need. Although fishing was his passion, he was most proud of his children. He loved God, family and friends but most of all helping others. His warm smile and gentle words will be forever missed.
