Chris played wherever he lived, including, Georgia, Michigan, California, Minnesota, Alabama, and Tennessee where he departed this life. He also toured Europe in the 1990s playing his guitar, and once had a traveling band, Chris Peeler and The Truth.

Chris leaves to cherish his memory, a sister, Felicia Joy of Chicago, IL; two brothers, Cornelius Peeler of Mountain Rest, SC and Jon Cleveland Peeler (Sherita) of Milledgeville, GA; a loving uncle, Adolphus Thomas Allen (Ann) of Jacksonville, FL; two aunts, Dovie Lou Peeler Williams of St. Paul, MN and Emily Palmer-Garland of Lawrenceville, GA; a nephew, Ashton Peeler and a niece, Aubrey Peeler, both of Milledgeville.
