Bob Peters has passed away following a long battle with illness.
A former announcer at 107.7 Triple M on the Central Coast of NSW, Bob worked at SCA, ARN, the Nine Network and was a voice over artist at Fox Sports and Network Ten.
A lifelong devoted South Sydney Rabbitohs fan, he was also the ground announcer at their home ground and had been the announcer for the medal presentations for Cycling, road and track, at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
At 45 Bob fell sick to Polycystic Kidneys, a chronic illness that saw his kidneys fail to work.
Ongoing dialysis every second day in hospital kept him alive, but the side effects of the disease mounted from countless golden staph infections, to preventative brain surgery for an aneurysm.
After 10 years of waiting, he finally received an organ transplant but just 5 years later was diagnosed with Renal Cell Cancer with Mets to the bone.
The terminal cancer diagnosis in January 2021 prompted Bob to quit work and chase his dream of touring around Australia in an RV, in particular up the western coast of Australia to Darwin and then back home to the Central Coast.
The funeral will be held at The Lakes Church, 6 Pioneer Avenue, Tuggerah NSW on Friday 24th at 1pm. The wake will follow at the Tall Timbers Hotel.
