Beloved Brother, Uncle, and Friend
Walter “Wally” Hudson Peeler, after 64 years, unexpectedly passed away. He is survived by his two sisters, Donna Siegel and her husband Alan of Easton, MA, and Brenda Peeler and her husband Todd Shank of St. Croix USVI; two nieces and one nephew, Kimberly Matakanski and her husband Mark, Crystal Siegel, and Joshua Siegel; and former spouse, Beth MacLean. He is preceded in death by his parents, George and Carolene Peeler.
Wally was an excellent machinist and highly skilled mechanic. Friends referred to him as MacGyver although he was humble about his accomplishments. Wally successfully balanced work and recreation. He was an avid outdoorsman. One passion of his was riding and restoring vintage motorcycles. He cherished the open road and looked forward to attending Laconia Bike Week each year with his buddies. In addition to riding his bikes, he enjoyed snowmobiling, boating, hunting, fishing, and interacting with nature.
Wally would help anyone in need. He was known for his honesty and integrity. He enjoyed spending time with friends and possessed the greatest laugh. Wally will be etched in our hearts and always missed.
All are welcome to attend a Celebration of Life gathering on Saturday November 23rd from 1:00-4:00 at the Groton Country Club in Groton, MA. Please come and share your memories, pictures, and thoughts with family and friends.
