Cory Duff Peck was born on March 15th 1986 to Beverly Peck and Patrick Peck. He passed away at his home in Bakersfield on May 9th 2016.
Cory attended Stockdale Christian School and went on to graduate from Bakersfield High School. Growing up, Cory was avid about sports, playing soccer in elementary school, golf in high school, and skateboarding whenever and wherever he could. He was especially fond of golf and had a special place in his heart for the mountains and snowboarding.
In his life, Cory held many occupations- his latest endeavor was as a supervisor for UPS. Prior to that, Cory spent several years working for Sierra Summit Ski Resort/China Peak Ski Resort in the lift department, rental department and as an instructor. His job as an instructor really embodied who Cory was as a person, he was great with people and had a talent for teaching the sport he loved.
Cory will be missed by everybody whose life he touched. His gift of gab, contagious smile and kind nature were and will always be one of a kind.
Cory is survived by his mother Beverly Peck, aunt Jackie Ripple, father Patrick Peck, step-mother Kim Peck, sister Amy Peck, brother Sam Peck, grandmother Carolyn Peck and many other aunts, uncles and cousins. He is preceded in death by grandfather Norman "Sumner" Peck, grandfather Edwin Ripple, and grandmother Joyce Ripple.
