Wilbur George Peter, 94, peacefully went to be with his beloved wife Jackie on Tuesday, May 24, 2011.


Wilbur was born on Jan. 2, 1917, in Wilder, Minnesota. In 1942, after graduation from high school he was drafted and shipped to England where he met and later married Jackie on Oct. 6, 1945, in Liverpool, England, during World War II.


Wilbur was a communications expert and worked on splitting the Transcontinental Cable, disconnecting from Berlin. After the war Wilbur continued to work in France where a son, James, was born July 1947, only to die 10 days later. The child was buried in Cherbourg.


Upon returning to the United States Wilbur and Jackie lived and worked in the Southern Calif area until they retired in 1961. At that time they purchased and ran Bridge Auto Court Fishing Resort in Lower Lake, Calif.


Due to declining health Wilbur, with his sister, Dorothy, moved to West Valley City, Utah, nine years ago to be lovingly cared for by his niece Connie Wallis.


Wilbur was preceded in death by his parents, Jack and Clara; beloved wife, Jackie (1992); son, James; and older brother, Lloyd.


He is survived by his sister, Dorothy Walker (Utah); brothers, Darwin (Buster) and Peter (Minnesota); and many nieces and nephews.


Much appreciation is sent to Applegate Home Health and Hospice for their outstanding care and concern for Wilbur.


A memorial service is being planned for Friday, June 17, 2011, at his residence in West Valley City, Utah.
