John Peshek was born in Calumet, Mich., June 10, 1958. He passed away April 19, 2017 in Edmond, Okla. John was a beloved son, brother, uncle, cousin as well as dedicated friend to all who took the time to know him. John completed Menominee Intermediate School. He considered himself retired with his parents spending six months of the year in Menominee, Mich. and six months of the year in Kissimmee, Fla. The last 22 chapters read out in Edmond, with his sister and brother- in-law enjoying life to it's fullest.
John was a shy gentle spirit with a quick wit. He was a stickler for timeliness, inquisitive, brilliant, and just a little bossy. A true spirit of forever kindness. His favorite pastimes being Friday night bowling, Saturday movie outings, music, TV, concerts, his many pets, soda pop, M&M's and going out to eat with friends. He loved deeply and uncondi-tionally with his life being lived outside the perceived norm of society. Thank you to all that were part of his journey.
