Calvin B. Peters
1929 – 2019
Calvin B. Peters, 89, of Everett passed away March 1 at the
Eastpointe Rehabilitation Center in Chelsea.
He was born Nov. 11, 1929 in Portland, Maine and raised by his loving parents Martha and Calvin Peters. He had many fond memories of the Kennebunk Beach area growing up. Working at his parent’s restaurant “The Dipsy Baths,” he would spend the days helping around the restaurant and renting the beach chairs, umbrellas and floats to beachgoers of Kennebunk Beach.
He completed his first year of college before proudly serving in the Army during the Korean War.
Calvin met the love of his life, Dorothy M. Novello Peters and they raised their three boys in Everett.
After completing his military service, he went on to drive a tour bus for Hudson Bus Lines in Medford. He received great joy and took great pride in showing people the fantastic sites that our country has to offer.
When Calvin wanted to relax, he would spend countless hours listening to his favorite Big Band artists such as Frank Sinatra, Glenn Miller and Tony Bennett. He loved the Boston sports teams and enjoyed watching the games with his family. He treasured spending time with his family, first with his wife and children, and in his later years, with his grandchildren and great grandchild.
He enjoyed taking pictures, and loved traveling. Dorothy and Calvin shared countless memories of their time traveling to Disneyworld and other destinations across the county.
When Calvin was a child, he enjoyed camping trips with his parents. As a Dad, he enjoyed visiting the many lakes of Maine including Lake Pennesseewassee, Crystal Lake and Moose Pond with all the family. Calvin lived in Massachusetts for 62 years, but his joy of the Maine outdoors brought him and his family back to Maine for vacations and family trips.
He was also involved with his community and was a Mason in the former Galilean Lodge as well as a member of The Boy Scouts of America, Troop 6 in Everett. This allowed him to spend lots of quality time with his sons.
Calvin was predeceased by his parents, Martha E. and Calvin F. Peters and his sisters, Norma Henderson and Martha Peters. He is survived by his wife, Dorothy M. Novello Peters of Everett; three sons: Calvin M. Peters of Sanford, ME, Scott Peters and his fiancée, Lisa Oberle of Middleton, NH, and Mark Peters and His fiancée, Sandra Deitz of Gettysburg, PA; three grandchildren, Christine Grigg and her husband, Scott Grigg of Indianapolis, IN, Christopher Peters of Washington, DC, and Ryan Peters of Viriginia and a great granddaughter, Elani Grigg.
The family would like to gratefully acknowledge the Everett Fire Department, and Everett Rescue who assisted Dad on countless occasions. They would also like to acknowledge the help and assistance of his caregivers over the years and especially Dorothy’s dear friend, Carolyn Perry of Everett for her countless hours of companionship and assistance with day to day activities.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in his memory to the Good Shepherd United Methodist Church, 577 Salem St., Malden MA 02148.
There will be a private gravesite service and burial at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, South Portland, Maine, in the spring.
