Obituary: David Gordon Peckham

Jan. 11, 1974 ~ Dec. 29, 2021

David Gordon Peckham passed away on Dec. 29, 2021, at the age of 47. David was born on Jan. 11, 1974, in Long Beach, California. He enjoyed his music and football teams and star gazing on clear nights. But most of all David enjoyed being a proud father. He loved his baby so much and he was his world. As soon as his son was born his life changed and he knew he wanted to be there for his child and did everything he could to care and protect him. 

He had a unique personality and liked to have fun but made sure that everybody knew he was always right. He was often the life of the party and loved to dance in his own style. He was always very honest with his feelings and let everyone know it. He loved to have fun and enjoyed hanging out whether it be on the river, in the garage or just having a few beers with those around him. He had three cats which were all like his children to him which he was always spoiling. David was a very caring and kind person and he had so much more life to share. 

He is survived by his best friend and wife of 12 years, Jennifer Hernandez of Rangely, Colorado; his six month old baby Evard Gordon Peckham; sister Emily Peckham of Long Beach, California.

He is preceded in death by his mother Bonnie Ellen Jaffe and father Danny Lee Peckham.
