John Peck passed away at the age of 83 on January 26, 2015 and Helen Peck passed away at the age of 81 on February 24, 2015. Both died from natural causes. John and Helen had two daughters, Margaret and Tillie the late John and the late Doug; three sons, John Alina, Donald Deborah and Ronald Cindy; eight grandchildren; and four great grandchildren. John was born in Harbor Beach, Michigan and he met Helen at Johnnie Neys Bar near Bad Axe in August 1954. Helen was born in the upper peninsula of Michigan in the town of Covington. Helen had just taken a job in Southeast Michigan and was in the "thumb area" with some friends the night they met. They were married in January 1955 and were together for more than 60 years. They were able to celebrate their anniversary just before their final days with us all. In their retirement years they had homes in Phoenix, Arizona, Las Vegas, Nevada and The Villages of Florida, but their true home was in Rochester, Michigan. John and Helen enjoyed golfing, bowling and gambling, but their greatest joy was spending time with family. There will be a memorial service at Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly, Michigan in the Spring. Arrangements by Wm. Sullivan & Son Funeral Home, Royal Oak, www.sullivanfuneraldirectors.com.
