Daryl J. Peck, age 63, of Elkhorn, WI, died Tuesday, August 2nd, 2022, after a two-year battle with cancer. He was reunited in death with his wife of 42 years, Denise, who passed away on April 3rd of this year.
Daryl was born in Ogeman, MI, on June 16, 1959, to the late Richard and Norma (Hagemeister) Peck. He married Denise L. Puchalski on August 17, 1980, in Burlington, WI. Daryl is survived by his children, Kelly and Ryan, and his grandson, Noah. He is brother to Barry Peck and the late Lon Peck. Daryl also leaves behind many other family members and countless friends.
Growing up in Nippersink, WI, Daryl fell in love with the game of golf and became a pro in 1978. In 1985, he made a profession change and purchased a heating company with a friend, later becoming the sole owner of what grew to become Peck & Weis Heating, Cooling, Plumbing and Electric.
He was very involved in the surrounding communities and frequently and generously gave to those in need. He supported multiple organizations and was a member of the Randall Township school board and the Twin Lakes Area Chamber and Business Association Foundation, to name a few.
Daryl was an avid fisherman. He enjoyed many trips to Canada with family and friends where he made an abundance of fishing tale memories and instigated plenty of pranks – usually getting the last laugh.
Daryl and Denise loved to entertain, whether hosting fun-filled destination weekends for company employees or throwing Halloween parties and other celebrations for family and friends at their home. They both had the travel bug and spent many years exploring the world together, with their most favorite destination being Africa. When not traveling, they split their time between Wisconsin and Florida, where they gained many lifelong friends.
Daryl was a kind, generous, humble and fun man who loved life and lived it to the fullest. He always knew how to make others feel welcome and accepted and he will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
