George “Skip” Nathaniel Peacock, Jr., 62, passed away at his home on Thursday, May 30, 2013 after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. A longtime resident of Riverside, he graduated from JFK High School in Willingboro in 1969.
To say that Skip was a family man is an understatement. He was always more than happy to put them before himself. He was married to his best friend, Elizabeth “Betsy” Anne Peacock, for 24 years and together they raised a big family. When his children were young, he never missed any of their activities; he coached Little League and attended cheerleading events and dance recitals. In later years, he enjoyed spending his time with his grandchildren and attending their events as well. He took great pride in working on his home; his well-manicured lawn always a reflection of how he kept his life so neat and organized. Most recently Skip worked for ITW Covid in Cranbury, after spending many years in the medical packaging industry. When it was time for leisure he could be found rooting for the Yankees or Eagles and enjoying an ice cold Boost.
He is survived by his children: George “Toby” Peacock, III (Danielle) of New Egypt, Jeremy Peacock (Jamie) of Cinnaminson, Joseph Ringer (Tara) of Cinnaminson, Amanda Ringer of Palmyra and Rachel Peacock of Riverside. His life was again blessed by the addition of his 6 grandchildren: Christina, Nate, Grace, Jackson, Lauryn and Jameson. He was predeceased by his wife, Elizabeth Anne Peacock (Sinkleris), his father, George Nathaniel Peacock, Sr. and his mother, Mildred Virginia Peacock (Pilchard). Skip is also survived by his sisters, Jennifer Rhodes and Sherry White (Charles) and his brother, Mark Peacock (Bertha) along with several nieces, nephews and dear friends.
