Jim Peters Obituary, Death Cause – Good morning to the family that dances. I must tell each and every one of you with a heavy heart that our dearly beloved Jim Peters passed away unexpectedly yesterday. It is with a heavy heart that I must make this announcement. Jim Peters was someone who had a significant influence on the lives of a huge number of people who worked in the dance industry.
He was a superb dancer, a competitor, an examiner, a judge, a ballroom captain at all major dance events, a coach, and most importantly, a highly beloved friend to a large number of people. He will be missed by a large number of people. He has so many hats that he wore. Jim was my ballroom captain at the Millennium for more than 20 years, during which time we had a lot of fun together.
In addition, he served in this role at the Cuba International Ballroom Championships, the Hollywood Dancesport Championships, the Florida Superstars, the Budapest Open, the Venice Dance Festival, and the Vilnius Dance Festival. Because Jim had such a strong desire to travel all over the world, I never let an opportunity pass him by for him to come with me on one of my trips overseas to dance.
When we were together, we never failed to have a fantastically enjoyable time for ourselves. We shared a lot of laughs with Jim over the years because he was such a wonderful man on the inside and out. He had an honest and genuine passion for the dancing business, and he was a joy to be around. At the time of his unfortunate demise in London, England.
He was spending some time in one of his favorite spots, and he was getting ready to enjoy the festivities of the British Open when he passed away. His passing came at a tragically young age. He never missed an annual trip to Blackpool and never failed to go there.
Jim, I owe you a tremendous debt of gratitude for all of the guidance, mentorship, and dedication you’ve provided. We’ve made a lot of wonderful memories and had a lot of fun times together over the course of our time together.
