My name is Dave Peters. My wife Mary and I have been married for 29 years. We have lived in Wildomar, California for the past 25 years. We have a 26 year old son Chris and our daughter Lindsay is 18 years old. We started LoveLife Scott Peters Foundation in October 2008 due to the loss of our 21 year old son and brother, Scott, on November 1st 2007 to suicide.

We are your typical family with the same struggle’s as many other families. Suicide affects people and families from all walks of life. No family is immune to this the 3rd leading cause of death in teenagers and young adults ages 15 through 24. Many times shame and blame will shatter a good family into pieces. Silence in a family with no one talking about the death of their loved one can do great harm. We know it is hard to talk about. But you have to talk. Since the death of our son we have had many opportunities to help people talk about their loss. For many it was the first time they talked to anyone, in or out of their family, about the loss of their loved one.

Our family is dedicated to Erasing the Silence of Suicide through Awareness, Support and Education. If you have lost a loved one to suicide or you know of someone who has lost someone please feel free to email us at lovelifescottpetersfoundation@gmail.com or by clicking the Contact Us button on this page. If you would like for us to call you please put your number in your email.
