Every day he got up and loved his wife and family, went to work, and took care of his family and business. Peck started numerous businesses, mostly related to the automobile industry,¬†one of which bears his name at 2600 Mount Moriah.
Peck¬†loved grandkids, flying, pheasant hunting, the Shrine circus and Shrine events, traveling, BBQ for his birthday, ice cream and, most of all, people. ¬†He¬†was always the consummate PR man wherever he was because he loved people and being where folks were. ¬†
He was a member of the greatest generation, giving his service for our freedoms. ¬†He visited Italy when he turned 80 with his son as he always wanted to go back when ‚Äúthey weren‚Äôt shooting at you.‚ÄĚ
