Gordon H. Peacock, a retired Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) executive and retired Army officer, died peacefully on April 3, 2017 at Pine View Transitional Rehab in South Ogden, UT.

Gordon was born in 1924 in New Bedford, Massachusetts. He was the middle child of three children, along with his sisters Grace and Jeanne. Gordon fought in Germany in World War II, receiving the Bronze Star. He went on to become a Company Commander in the 82nd Airborne, retiring on Okinawa after twenty years of service. He worked for the federal government for another twenty seven years before retiring for good. He is a member of the DLA Hall of Fame.

He spent his time sailing and teaching sailing and focusing on his beloved wife, Ruth, who predeceased him in 2007. He is the father of two sons, Gary and Michael.

Gordon made an army of friends in Ogden and had a tremendous impact on so many lives. He will be greatly missed.

We are very sorry to hear about Gordon's passing. We have known him for some time now and we spent many enjoyable times with him at Village Inn brunches, Olive Garden, etc. He was a true warrior whose contributions in the service of his country during two wars and elsewhere are greatly appreciated. He will be sorely missed.
