Detlev Martin Peters, 91, owner of television

December 25, 2003

Detlev Martin Peters, who once owned a Catonsville television repair business, died Dec. 18 at Anne Arundel Medical Center after a massive stroke. He was 91.

Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, Mr. Peters moved to Baltimore when he was young. He was unable to finish high school after his father fell ill. He lived in Catonsville for many years, owning Peters and Cunat, a TV sales and service business on Frederick Road that closed in the late 1970s.

He and his family moved to Annapolis in 1979 after his retirement. He had been a member of the Arundel Carvers and the Kent Island Yacht Club, where he enjoyed boating and other water activities.

Services were held Monday.

Mr. Peters is survived by his wife of 62 years, the former Dorothy Duvall of Annapolis; two sons, Detlev Martin Peters Jr. of Annapolis and Charles Richard Peters of Moundsville, W.Va.; three grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.
