Charles "Rodney" Peters Obituary

Charles "Rodney" Peters Jr. 67 of Sandusky passed away at his residence on Tuesday December 5, 2023 after fiercely fighting a brief and challenging battle with ALS. He was born March 18, 1956 in Sandusky, Ohio to the late Charles R. and Thelma L. (Sartor) Peters Sr.

Rodney graduated from Perkins High School in 1975. At a young age Rodney was a hard worker. He would spend many spring and summers on the family garden. Rodney worked at Corso’s Cleveland Road Greenhouse in Sandusky for 27 years and then another 24 years at the former Huron Lime Company in Huron, OH. Before officially retiring in June of 2022 he spent 4 years working in grounds  maintenance at Cedar Point.

Rodney was a huge sports fan who loved The Ohio State Buckeyes, Cleveland Indians and the Cleveland Browns. He also enjoyed playing cards with family and friends. Most of all Rodney loved spending time with family whom he loved more than anything. He was the guy everyone could count on, showing up no matter what  the need or time of day. He will be greatly missed by so many family, friends and caregivers. The family would like to thank ProMedica Hospice Service Northwest Ohio and caregivers for all their help and assistance with granting him one last wish, getting him home where he could be at peace.
