June 22, 1946 - August 29, 2020
Walter “Chop” Peck, Sr., age 74, of the Greenwood section of Moosic, passed away Saturday morning at Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton, after an illness. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 45 years, Barbara Ann (Shimshock) Peck, on April 23, 2014.
Born on June 22, 1946 and raised in Dupont, Walter was the son of the late Walter and Beatrice (Wasilewski) Peck and was a graduate of the former Northeast High School in Pittston. He worked in construction before retiring from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).
Walter possessed an amazing sense of humor, a friendly demeanor and a genuine spirit. He was a car collector, a former Riverside School Board member and a well-known fixture (iced tea in hand) along with his crew at the Moosic Dunkin’ Donuts.
Above all else came his family, especially his grandchildren. He wouldn’t miss an opportunity to attend one of their events. He’ll certainly never be forgotten.
He is survived by his children, Sherri Wagner and husband, Bob, Old Forge; Wally Peck Jr. and wife, Deanna, Scranton; and Jason Peck and wife, Jill, Moosic; and five grandchildren, Josh and Maddie Wagner and Samantha, Brandon and Liliana Peck.
A brother, Edward Peck, Sr., also preceded him in death.
His family would like to extend its gratitude to Drs. Kathryn Sallavanti, Ferdinand Manahan and Haitham Abughnia, as well as the entire staff of Old Forge DaVita Dialysis, for their collective care they’d given to Walter.
A blessing service is scheduled for Wednesday at 7:00PM at the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge. Family and friends may pay their respects on Wednesday from 4:00PM until services.
