Andy Peters, Rockwood

Andy Peters, age 42, a resident of Rockwood, Tennessee went home to be with the Lord and his baby girl after a 2-month battle with Covid 19. He fought hard to stay with his girls, but the Lord took him home where he received his ultimate healing. Andy was born in Rockwood, Tennessee at Chamberlain Memorial Hospital on November 8, 1979, to Frank and Bonnie Peters. He graduated from Rockwood High School in 1997, where he met his first and only love, Amanda. They were married for 24 beautiful years and had 3 girls – Emily, Morgan, and Hannah, who were his whole world.

Andy was Pastor of Post Oak Springs Christian Church in Rockwood. He volunteered for Smoky Mountain Christian Camp every summer, where he ministered and poured himself into every child he could.

Andy loved his girls, his Doodles, his Grandpup, hot tamales, disc golf, and driving his Camaro with the bumper sticker that read “Follow me to Church … if you can keep up”. He was known to be a very proud Swim Dad and volunteer. He could also “teleport” to any friend in need. If he didn’t have the tool or couldn’t fix it, he knew someone who could.

Andy will be remembered as a wonderful Husband, Father, Pastor, and Friend.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Bonnie Peters; daughter, Morgan Peters; brothers, Wayne Bryant, and Darrell Bryant; sister, Shiroma Peters; father-in-law, David Waldo; and brother-in-law, Pat Waldo.
