Dwayne was born at March Air Force Base in Riverside, Ca on March 4, 1960. He passed away unexpectedly on April 28, 2020 in his home in Mesa, Ariz.
His parents are David and Bonia Peterson.His hobbies included fishing as number 1, and working with wood. Later he was introduced to the guitar by a coworker and that became number 1 until his passing.
He worked several jobs from putting in dropped ceilings to fencing and last but not least his current job at A1 Golf Cards in Leasing, Arizona, which he loved.
He met the love of his life Tammy Jean Kessler and new 9 year old daughter Samantha Kessler (Stockton) in 1991, Victorville, Ca. He, his wife, and daughter moved to the Kern River Valley in 1995. When his wife passed in 2013, he moved to Mesa, AZ to be closer to his parents.
Times may have not always been the greatest, and sometimes they were the best. No matter what the challenge was, Dwayne made the best of his life. No matter the ups and downs he had a purpose to be a loving son, husband, father, nephew, and friend.
He was hardly confrontational and always mellow with people he encountered.
He is proceeded in death by his wife Tammy Jean Kessler, his brother Raymond, and both sets of grandparents.
Survivors include his parents, his daughter Samantha Stockton and her spouse Eric Stockton, his mother-In-Law Barbara Jean Brendel, aunts, uncles, and cousins. And of course Buddy, his beloved Dog.
There will be no service at this time due to the COVID-19. A Memorial will be planned at a later date.
