Douglas C. Peacock, 87, of Union Springs died on October 24, 2021 at Auburn Community Hospital.
"Doug" was born on February 11, 1934 in Fleming, NY, the son of the late Ralph and Margaret (Kirkwood) Peacock. He was a Sergeant in the U.S. Marines, serving our country honorably in the Korean War, and was a member of the VFW and the American Legion. He retired from Guaranteed Parts in Seneca Falls after working there for 25 years.
Doug was an avid sports fan, never missing a New York Yankees or Syracuse football or basketball game. He was a gifted artist, and enjoyed woodworking. He built much of the house the Peacock family have lived in since 1958. Doug also loved travelling, especially to Barbados, and he went on countless cruises with family and friends.
Doug was predeceased by his beloved wife Helena (Villiers). He is survived by his loving daughter, Mary Elizabeth Peacock, and his son and daughter-in-law, Scott Douglas Peacock and Marianne Dainton. Doug had three grandchildren, Kristina Mary Calkins, Bradley (Cynthia) Calkins, and Zachary Calkins, and two great-grandchildren: Aiden and Vesper Calkins. He also had three cherished godchildren: Barbara (Jack) Wagener, Thomas Sage, and Lorie Mellini.
