Dave Peters
Member - Navy

Comrade Dave Peters was a long-time Santa Cruz resident and member of VFW Post 7263.  Though he had a severe back injury that limited his mobility, he attended Post meetings, barbecues and holiday events at our Post whenever he could.  Even when he was unable to drive, he would try to find a family member to bring him.  Dave was in the Navy before returning to civilian life.  He worked in sheet metal trade and then became a contractor, before injuring his back and then retiring.
Rest in Peace, Dave.
