Vic Peters, Canadian curler, Died at 60


Vic Peters was born on April 24, 1955, and died on March 27, 2016.

He was a Canadian curler.

He was a three-time Manitoba curling champion and one-time national champion as a winner of the 1992 Labatt Brier.

Vic Peters was once considered a member of Manitoba’s “Big Three”, which consisted of himself, Kerry Burtnyk and Jeff Stoughton.

At that period in time, those teams dominated curling in Canada and the world during the 1990s, winning four Labatt Briers and two world championships.

He was noted for his truck delivery alongside Burtnyk and Stoughton.

Vic Peters gained his first win and only national championship on his first visit to the Brier in 1992.

This earned him a trip to the World Curling Championships in Germany where his team finished third.

His team won the national championship under the traditional curling rules, but in Europe they played under the 4-rock free guard zone rule.

Vic Peters once more qualified for the Safeway Championship in 2011, this time skipping but throwing third stones while son Daley threw fourth.

His son Daley was back to back Manitoba junior champion in 2004 and 2005.

Peters daughter Elizabeth Peters is also a curler and won the 2008 Canadian Junior Curling Championships as a second on the Kaitlyn Lawes team.

Vic Peters passed away at 60 yrs old due to cancer.
