AJ Peters, 85, was born on a cold day in February, 1935, in the Red Bluff community in Texas to Terry John Peters and Mary Elizabeth Peters, the 3rd child and first son. He passed away Saturday August 29th 2020 in Houston Texas. It did not take him long to find the Red Bluff school where his two older sisters walked to school and he could hear the children there during recess. He graduated from Edna High School in 1953 and was a tri captain in football for the Edna Cowboys. As a young man he liked to work on motorcycles, owning a 1948 Indian. His mechanical ability carried over in life, working on farm equipment and his antique cars. AJ served in the US Navy and when he was honorably discharged, he returned to school receiving his Bachelors and Masters degrees in Business from Sam Houston State University.

In 1969 he married Beverly Anne Peck and taught school in Edna before they moved to Canyon. He was employed for several years by Continental Trailways and enjoyed taking passengers on tours throughout the US and Canada. AJ acquired residential real estate properties in Canyon and was still actively involved in the residential rental business at the time of his death. He was a member of the First Baptist Church in Canyon where he was actively involved with his Bible Searchers Sunday School Class.

AJ is survived by his sister, Barbara Ann Purcell, of Corpus Christi, Texas, a brother, Dennis Peters, of Huntsville, Texas and by multiple nephews and nieces. He is preceded in death by his wife, Beverly, his sister, Dorothy Aimone, and his parents Terry John Peters and Mary Elizabeth Peters.

Graveside services will be held at 9:00 A.M. on Monday, August 31, 2020 at Dreamland Cemetery in Canyon Texas with Rev. Gene Jones officiating.

Memorials may be made to the American Cancer Society.

It was an honor to have been one of AJ Peters students at EHS 1970-1971 It is comforting to know he is now with Beverly and our Lord Jesus Christ.

So sorry for your loss. I always enjoyed listening to Aj’s stories he would share. He was such a good looking man and very sweet. If you didn’t know how to so something he should would tell you and show you how to do it. Many prayers for the family.

AJ's bus driving was a special treat to my mother, Christine McGlasson. When she lived in Canyon and would go on trips with the senior adults at First Baptist, AJ would come by mom's house and pick her up as he headed to FBC. Door to door service. He lived down the street. Anyone who made my mom feel special is pretty special to me, too!
