Peter James Stickel, age 53 of Goodlettsville, passed away March 22, 2021. He was born in St. Louis Missouri on December 28, 1967 to James and Peggy Stickel, and lived most of his life in Sumner County. He is also survived by his wife, Beverly Stickel; sons, Mayson James Stickel and Clayton Lee Stickel, and their mother, Lisa Millman; sisters, Fran (Clif) Hutson, and Laura (Danny) Denning. Peter was a graduate of Beech High School class of 1986. He then attended Western Kentucky University where he graduated Class of 1991 with a BA in Criminal Justice and a minor in Psychology. He was the owner of SPI (Stickel Private Investigations), a private investigation firm in his early career.
Growing up, Peter loved the outdoors, which was a peaceful place for him. Hunting trips with his Dad, family camping and boating, and just being in nature were some of his most treasured times.
A devoted father, Peter was his boys soccer coach, baseball coach, Band Dad for Davidson Academy Bears and hockey Dad with Nashville Flyers. He loved spending time with his boys Mayson and Clayton on their boat, at the lake camping and what ever interests they decided to grow into. Family was important to Peter, even being an Uncle he took seriously and invested time. Being the youngest of 3 children himself, Peter worked to make sure the entire family was connected, usually centered around his parents as the gathering place.
Peter was first married to Lisa Mays and their love created two boys they raised together for 25 years. Later, Peter married Beverly Johnson Stickel. Their life together has been based in Goodlettsville and cut short by his tragic death only 3 years later.
A celebration of Life will be at Cole & Garrett Funeral Home, Goodlettsville Sunday March 28, 2021 at 3pm with visitation from 12 Noon until the time of service.
1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

      I was so upset to hear of Peter’s passing. Although I haven’t seen him for decades, he looks the same as I remember. He was always very jovial and I enjoyed the time we all spent with him. God must have needed him although it is hard for the family. Look at lots of pictures and memories to comfort your hearts.

    the Lord make his face shine upon you
    and be gracious unto you;
    the Lord turn his face toward you
    and give you peace.

    My love, my sympathy, my prayers to all of
    you in loving memory of this remarkable
    young man, Peter James. 🌱

    Dear Jim:

    It was so very sad to learn of the tragic accident that swept away your young son’s life. I have been in touch with Tommy Brown, who told me about this horrific tragedy. There is so little one can say to give comfort, but please know that my heart aches for you and your dear family.

    With love,

    I was so saddened to hear of Peter’s passing. As a teenager he spent many days and night at our home with our son Johnny Barnard. We always enjoyed having Peter around. He was polite, caring, funny and respectful. Our hearts, thoughts, love and prayers go out to his boys, his family and loved ones.
