John Francis Peacock

September 19, 1948 — October 25, 2023

John F. Peacock, 75, of San Benito, Texas, and formerly of Cedar Falls, Iowa, passed away suddenly and peacefully on October 25, 2023.

He was born September 19, 1948 in Newport, Arkansas to Charles Jesse Peacock II and Mary Magdelene Dabbs of McCrory, Arkansas.

John married Linda Buren in 1969 and they have two children and two grandchildren.

Having been raised on his father’s large farm, he learned many different skills. These came in handy when he graduated from the University of Arkansas in 1977 with a BS in Agricultural Engineering and went to work for John Deere Company in Waterloo, Iowa. He retired after 30 years.

An avid airplane enthusiast from an early age, John received his pilot’s license the day he graduated High School. He was an active member of the Experimental Aircraft Association and of local chapters 227 in Waterloo, Iowa and 595 in La Feria, Texas. He built his own airplane, a Mustang II, and enjoyed it for many years.

Well-known for his mechanical skills, he also had the gift of quickly forming friendships. He never met a stranger.

John was preceded in death by his parents and three brothers: Charles Jesse Peacock III, Henry Kenneth Peacock and Joseph Nelson Peacock and two sisters-in-law, Ann Reed Peacock and Jackye Sue Peacock.

He is survived by his wife of 54 years,  Linda Peacock; his son, Todd Michael “Jordan” (Wendy) Peacock of Orlando, Florida; a daughter, Jennifer Leah (David) King of Cedar Falls, Iowa; two granddaughters, Tori Lane King and Haylee Marie King; and one brother, James Ray Peacock of McCrory, Arkansas.
