Paul R. Peacock, II age 63 of Crestview passed from this life on September 14, 2022. He was born in Antwerp, NY on August 22, 1959 to Paul & Margaret Peacock.
Paul grew up in New York and spent his childhood in Antwerp, where he graduated from Indian River High School. After high school he joined the United States Air Force and proudly served his country for over 20 years. He was a Retired Master Sergeant and a Desert Storm and Desert Shield Veteran.
After retiring from the military, he worked as a military contractor until he became a civil service employee with DCMA for the last 12 years.
If you knew and loved Paul, you knew he loved his motorcycles and the wind in his hair. He also loved turning wrenches and fixing things. He could make fixing things look like an art, but as good as he was with a wrench, he was just as good at drawing. He was a Scout Master and a member of the NRA.
But more than anything, he loved his family and his friends, and if you have a minute to listen to anyone who was close to him, you will hear the vivacious life he lived shining through their stories as they recant memories of him.
He adored his family, and his family adored him. He was very close to his three grandsons and spent time enjoying being their Papa. The gentle love he had for his family will be the cornerstone of memories that will forever fill their heart with his presence.
He will leave behind several great friends that were like family. There was not one person that didn’t know that he was an amazing soul and would help anyone that needed support. Paul’s love for his grandchildren, riding his motorcycle, the great outdoors and Big Foot will never be forgotten.
He was preceded in death by his parents. Paul is survived by; his children: Paul R. Peacock, III and his wife Nicole; Whitney Peacock Fuller and her husband Chris; Sarah Peacock and spouse Daniel Komula; a step daughter whom he raised like his own Katianne Meek; and his wife of 14 years Denise Darlington; stepchildren: Helaina Bell and husband Jesse, Ian Darlington and Anthony Darlington and wife Jesse: brother: John Peacock and wife Debbie; sisters: Susan Binder and husband Tom and Cheryl Rock; grandchildren: Daniel & Lucas Komula, Paul Peacock, IV; step grandchildren: Asher & Calvin Darlington, Kaylee and Emerson Bell.
