Robert Frederick Peacock
January 6, 1964 - September 1, 2020
It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of Bobby Peacock at the age of 56 on September 1, 2020, in London, Ontario. Bob is predeceased by his father Robert. Bob is survived by his partner Margaret Scully, his daughter Jane Peacock and son Jamie Peacock. He leaves behind his loving mother Patricia Anaganostou (Mike); his siblings Teresa Jennison (Doug), Kimberley Bellefeuille (Denis), and Patricia Knight (Tim); grandchildren, aunts, uncles, a niece and many nephews. Bob will also be greatly missed by all of his many friends in the deaf community. He spent his early schooling days in Milton and then graduated from The Robarts School for the Deaf here in London. He followed in his father’s footsteps working in the printing business at Senton Printing. There he became a well- respected and hard-working employee for 32 years. His love of his Boston Bruins and Dallas Cowboys was obvious to all. What was also obvious was his love for Margaret who will miss him dearly. They were inseparable. RIP. Cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will be held at NORTHVIEW FUNERAL CHAPEL, 1490 Highbury Ave. N., on Saturday, September 5th at 2:00 p.m. with visitation one hour prior.

There is almost no way to talk about you without missing your presence dearly. Words cannot even begin to describe how much you will be missed by all. My experience with you as my Uncle was most joyful and fun. We used to razz eachother every year at Christmas and Thanksgiving about football and hockey. You being a Bruins and Cowboys fan, and me an Eagles and Leafs fan made for some fun eventful times You always gave me a stink face and thumbs down when I talk about my teams beating yours. We would poke fun at eachother when our teams played one another or weren't doing well. I know that it was always in good fun. I will remember the days of you out matching me in arm wrestles and putting me in headlocks giving me noogies as a kid. I was hoping one day I would beat you and reverse the role but unfortunately that time never came. I remember when I was going to school at Fanshawe College I was lucky enough to run into you frequently getting your coffee inside the school at Timmies. I was also lucky that sometimes you even bought mine for me. We would grab a table together, I'd take my binder out with some paper and a pen and we would sit and have a good little chat together before either me running off to class or you off to work. I miss those days. I'll miss seeing you at Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners every year. I'll miss most of all the joy I would see in my Moms face getting to see her little brother and how proud of him she was. You lived a tough life facing many obstacles growing up with the disability of being deaf. You lived your life as if nothing held you back and there was nothing stopping you. A great example to anyone out there who faced a challenge, face it head on and work hard and you will accomplish your goals. Your sisters were lucky to have you around. They truly loved you and all know how much you loved them. Margaret was lucky to have met you and you her. It was so wonderful to see how happy you both made eachother. We were all so happy to welcome her into our homes. She is a fantastic person and will always truly miss having you around. We forever will consider her a part of the family as she was. I was most recently learning sign language from my parents so that one day I could have more fluent conversations with you, but unfortunately now I will not get the chance to surprise you with it. I hope that one day we will get to see eachother again and have a conversation about how the Leafs win the Stanley Cup and the Eagles another Superbowl. I will always love and miss you Uncle Bobby. I charish every moment we spent together. Til we meet again. Xoxoxo
I am so sad to hear of your son's passing Bob & Pat. I remember him as a very small child. In his obituary, I learned of what a great man he was and how proud you both and the family must have been of him and his achievements. My heart and prayers go out to all of the family. R.I.P. Bobby Annette Vanderhoeven (nee Chamberlain)
A small tribute to my only brother Bobby. And I've got to understand, You must release the ones you love, And let go of their hand, I try to cope the best I can, But I'm missing you so much, If I could only see you, And once more feel your touch, Yes, you're just waiting on ahead of me, Don't worry I'll be fine, But now and then I swear I feel, Your hand slip into mine. Love Patty❤️
Pat, Mike & family Al and I our sending our deepest sympathy for the sudden loss of Bobby. There can be no pain more deep than that of a mother losing a child. May is beautiful memory bring you comfort. Love Al & Betsy
So sorry to hear of the sudden loss of Bobby. We had the pleasure of meeting Bobby a few times over the years and he was such a kind man. Heard many stories told by Kim of their childhood memories throughout the years that put a smile on our faces. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, there is another bright star shining down in us, rest in peace Bobby. Sharon and Stephen Gillis and Family XO
Our thoughts and prays are with you all. I had the pleasure to meet Bobby a few times and shared a dance with him at Kim and Denis wedding. Kim shared memories of him when they were children. He was truly loved and will be missed deeply. Love has no distance and time brings everyone together again. Shine bright in the sky and we will look up to the heavens and know you are with those who miss you. Marie Louise and Grant Stephen

My memory of Bobby is when we took him to the Buffalo Bill game with my brother in law Tim. It was December 26th and we needed to dig out our seats. The weather was approx 40 below and I had to give to my Bobby who lasted one quarter then went inside. Tim and I started laughing until the game was over. As we froze all away back to St Catherines Bobby was warm because he decided to watch the game inside. Who is the smart one as Bobby had a grin all the way home. LOL my friend Bobby RIP
I Miss You Always My heart has been broken Since the day you had to go And the memories I treasure dearly Are the tears that still flow You will be in my thoughts everyday And that how it will always be For you are in heaven now but you will always be with me The day that heaven calls for me I will run to you with open arms And then we shall again RIP my little brother love your big sis Kimmi

Good memories about Bob and his partner Margaret visiting us and we visited them once a while. Bob had sense of humor caring and good laughs. We miss him dearly. Laurie and Bryan Cranton
Bobby is sorely missed and constantly in my thoughts. I have known him since he was a kid. Years ago, he repaired my bike. He even made a TV antenna for Margaret and me several years ago. My partner Paul & I were in awe of Bob’s talents! Bob was such a wonderful and kind guy with a great sense of humour. He always joked around and made the others and me laugh. He was really animated in ASL. He treated Margaret with lots of love, loyalty and respect. He helped her so much, repaired things for her and patiently mowed her lawn during summer weekends. They spent Saturdays shopping together @ White Oaks Mall, Masonville Place and other places. Last November, Bob took Margaret and me to Archie’s near White Oaks Mall to celebrate her birthday. We had such a wonderful time together there. I last saw Bob last month when he, Margaret and I took the Oxford East bus together after leaving White Oaks Mall. Unfortunately, his life was cut way too short. Hopefully, Bob found happiness and peace in heaven. RIP, Bob. Your friends, Betty Wiendels & Paul Branton
