Glenfielb Theotore Peters
ebruarn 21, 194f Marcd 16, 1997
Cyril Peters and Jerenium Joseph were blessed with a son on February
21, 1945. This son they named Glenfield Theodore. When his mother
passed away shortly after his birth, Glenfield was raised by his aunt, Mrs.
Salome Burk, of Freetown Village, St. Mary's Parish, Antigua. He at-
tended school in that town.
Job opportunities in Antigua were scarce, and in 1964 Glenfield came
to St. Thomas to live with his father's sister, Viola Hawkins. He attained
employment at Mannassah Bus Line and worked there for several years.
During this time he met Coralee Todman and they were married on July
20, 1968. This union was blessed with three children, Diane, Glenford
"Tommy" and Joann. After his tenure at Mannassah, he became a Taxi
Driver and joined the Virgin Islands Taxi Association. "Pete" or "Peters"
as he was affectionately called, could usually be found at the corner of
Arbys's, the West Indian Company dock, or in Smith Bay by Super Pool
cooling out.
Active in the Wesley Methodist Church, Pete was a member of the
Men's Fellowship and often took Sunday School children home from
church. A longtime member of the Lions Club, he served as Tail Twister,
Vice-President and President. He always had a smile on his face, if he had
pain, it was not apparent. Pete was always willing to give a helping hand.
When driving, if he recognized you, he would offer to take you home. He
will be greatly missed by his family and
On Saturday, March 15, as usual, he went
to look for his aunts Vi and Edna. Little did
they know it would be their last visit with
him. It was customary for Pete to go to his
Aunt Vi every Sunday. On March 16th, when
Aunt Vi did not see him, she became wor-
ried and called his brother Cardinal to ask
him to check his house and make sure his
brother was okay. When he got there he
found our different.
Pete was dearly loved by all who came in
contact with him. We will truly miss him.
May he rest in everlasting peace.

Glenfield ... Sometimes it is hard to know what to do when life seem
so difficult and so confusing, but Glen you were always there for us.
Making decision with your loving example and strong heart, never ending
faith. God eased your pain and agony. You are gone, but not forgotten,
your life has come to an end on this side. Pete we all loved you, but God
loved you best. May you rest in peace.
Aunt Viola and Auntie Edna

Our brother and uncle, Pete, has departed this world. His death was
sudden and totally unexpected. We know that death is inevitable, and it is
a road we all Must travel. We are grieving today, however, because we did
not have an opportunity to say our final good-byes to him. Nevertheless,
we will continue to put our faith, trust and hope in Almighty God, who

has promised never to leave us nor forsake us; and we will use the words
of the following hymn as our comfort and help us through
this difficult time:

Cardinal Peters,
your brothers and sisters,
many nieces and nephews

The family wishes to express love, thanks and appreciation
for all the sympathy and support given to us in this period of breavement. You
have shared our grief in many ways including visits, flowers and telephone calls.
Whatever you did, we are thankful, and we will never forget.
