    I had the privilege to work with Mr. Peevy at DuPont starting in 1974. I appreciated his instrumentation knowledge and assistance in the Water Plant. The last time that I saw him was in a barber shop in Woodville. My condolences.

    Joyce Peevy says:

    Thank you so much for your kind words of my dear husband. He will be missed by family and friends but the past 5 months were difficult after the return of his lung cancer. God quietly took him home to be with Him and I feel so blessed to know he is whole again.

    Wanda Walker says:

    Mom I just want to tell you how sorry I am for your loss but how joyous I am for Pops. He was truly like a dad to me. We made a lot of vacation rides 😊 together over the past 5 or 6 years. Pops always said we were going to stick together to the end. And we almost did. When I said my good byes I had to tell him that I was so sorry I couldn’t make this last road trip with him that he was going to have to let Jesus take the wheel and go on his final road trip to Heaven with Him. Pops you will truly and forever be missed but I Know I Will See you Again someday. Your passing will leave a hole in the hearts of many. I love you both Mom & Pop. 🤟🥰

    Joyce Peevy says:

    Wanda you know how he felt about you and trusted you to be his helper. We are going to miss him but we know what a difficult time he has had breathing. We are rejoicing that his struggles are over and he is in the presence of his Savior. You were almost his # 1.
    Thank for always being there for him.
