Posted By Hall-Wynne On May 30, 2019 @ 10:47 am In Durham,Obituaries | 15 Comments

On May 29, 2019, heaven welcomed home a loving son, husband, father, and grandfather, Bret Peacock. He was born October 17, 1939, to William Provis Peacock and Alice Brett Cleverly in Watsonville, CA. An only child, Bret grew up in Auburn, CA, adored by both sets of his grandparents and the family’s cocker spaniels.

He was married 52 years to his sweetheart Carolee Mavy and is survived by his wife, 5 children: Aaron Dean Peacock (Atina), Darcy Lynn Boden (Stephen), Krista Alice Edwards (Ken), Kellie Deanna Peacock, and Ashley Brett Queen (Stephen), 13 grandchildren, their spouses, 6 great grandchildren, his mother-in-law, Mary Kelley Mavy, 4 brothers-in-law, 2 sisters-in-law, a host of nieces and nephews, and his foster daughter, Norma Quintero. He is preceded in death by his parents, father-in-law, Carol Arlow Mavy, and his granddaughter Kendra Louise Edwards Naisbitt.

Bret proudly served in the U.S. Navy for 8.5 years as navel reactor plant operator and was a plank owner of the U.S.S. Enterprise. He obtained his degree as an electrical engineer from Sacramento State and worked for Bechtel Corporation for 39 years, including a three-year stint in Pusan, South Korea. Bret was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and had a passion for family history and genealogy. He was an avid reader, loved his 1966 Ford Galaxy red convertible, sports, chocolate chip cookies, a good chocolate bar, and he never came across a dog who didn’t love him.

Bret was generous, giving all he had to help others, never expecting anything in return. He had a great sense of humor and loved to laugh. Bret will be buried in Grantsville Cemetery in Grantsville, UT at a later date.

We miss you already, Dad.

I am so sorry for your loss!! Brother Peacock was always such a kind and friendly person! I remember spending hours at your home as a teenager, and later on when you lived in Briarcliff and then in Maryland—there was such love and peace, He was the epitome of a loving father. I remember Kellie saying one time that someone had observed that they had a father, and Kellie had a daddy. He was a wonderful example of what a father and husband should be.

Thank you my friend. And yes, I was sooo lucky to have him as my Daddy.
