"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.

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.

Doug was the best of the best in all aspects of his life. He will remain in my prayers along with Helena...another wonderful lady. I will also pray that his family pray to our Holy Father as both of their parents are well deserving of eternal life in the Heaven we believe in and pray for. I worked with he and his father-in-Law in Seneca Falls for 5 years in the late 60´s and early 70´s. Wonderful memories. Bill Wade, Jacksonville, FL
