Jaidan August Peters


Master Jaidan August Peters, age 4, of Walnut Hill, Fla., passed away Saturday, June 5, 2021 in Pensacola, Fla. He was born in Pensacola to Levi and Samantha Macks Peters. Jaidan is dearly loved by his parents, siblings, and all his family and friends. Jaidan made friends effortlessly and was a joy to be around; he always had a smile on his face. Jaidan enjoyed drawing, singing, and listening to music about Jesus. He loved the color purple and going to imaginary school. Jaidan didn’t like to eat a lot, but loved “kid coffee” and toast. He would often help make his own toast with lots of extra butter. Jaidan’s ZeeZee (Grandmother) often had a special drawer with bubble gum just for him. Jaidan enjoyed taking the wagon to feed the pigs and cows whom he named One, Two, and Three. He loved the everyday trips with his Daddy to pick his siblings up from school and always greeted them with his precious smile and a sweet hello. Jaidan’s nickname was “little monkey” because he was always found on his mom’s hip or by her side. 

He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Brenda Lynn Hubbard Peters and his uncle, Chris Henderson. 

Jaidan is survived by his parents, Levi and Samantha Peters of Walnut Hill; his grandfather, Erich Peters of Canoe, Ala.; his grandmother, Nancy Peters of Pace, Fla.; his grandparents, Sam and Cheryl Macks of Century, Fla.; his siblings, Levi Jordan Peters, Brylee Ann Peters and Samuel Colton Peters; his aunts and uncles, Austin (Trisha) Macks, Skyler (Elizabeth) Macks, Ericka (Victor) Peters-Quesada, Isaiah Peters, and Caleb Peters, along with many loving family and friends.
