Kevin James Peffers, age 61, formerly of Chesterton, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loving wife and family on Saturday, February 2, 2019 in Crown Point, IN. Kevin was born in Valparaiso, IN on March 8, 1957 to Robert and Shirley Peffers of Chesterton.

He is survived by his mother, Shirley Joan Peffers of Chesterton; wife, Cathy Peffers of Crown Point; children, Nathaniel (Corinne) Peffers of Porter, Cassidy (Chet) Nay of Chesterton, Adam (Kathleen) Peffers of Chesterton and Christina (Paul) Gesl of San Angelo, TX; brother, Keith (Wendy) Peffers of Porter; sisters, Cathy (Robert) Fitzmaurice of Chesterton and Constance (Robert) Linsemeyer of Porter; grandchildren, Haleigh Sutton, Skylar Peffers, Owen Peffers, Ethan Nay, Elijah “Eli” Nay, Eleanor “Nora” Peffers, Ryan Gesl and Rory Gesl; also including many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his father Robert Gene Peffers.

Kevin graduated from Chesterton High School and soon after joined the Carpenter’s Union which allowed him to provide for his growing family. He continued to work hard for 40 years until he eventually retired in 2017 to spend more time with his family. Kevin was an amazing husband, father, son, sibling and friend. He truly loved his family and the joy that they brought him. He enjoyed spending his retirement with his grandchildren and vacationing with his wonderful wife of over 6 years. He would often brag how lucky he really was. Kevin was an avid motorcycle rider, dating all the way back to his teenage years. A Harley was his bike of his choice, period. He could also always be seen watching and rooting for his beloved Chicago sports teams.

The Peffers’ family will be having a Celebration of Life, Sunday, February 10, at the First United Methodist Church, 434 South 2nd Street, Chesterton. There will be an Open Celebration from 1-4 p.m. then a small service and time to share stories and memories from 4-5 p.m. Friends and family are all welcome.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his honor to the American Cancer Society.
