Clarence Alfred Peters, age 94 of Waupaca, is resting in the loving arms of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He was called to his heavenly home on Sunday, March 15, 2020, with his loving family by his side. Clarence was born on June 20, 1925, in Fremont, son of the late Alfred and Mathilda (Krueger) Peters.

Together they ran a large dairy farm in Weyauwega for 30 years. Although they retired and sold their farm in 1992, Clarence continued doing fieldwork for close friends for many years because of his love for farming. He enjoyed meeting friends for breakfast at Waupaca Truck Stop and also going to the senior center and shooting pool.
