Gregory Keith Peacock, age 58, passed away on March 7, 2020.

Born in Jacksonville, Florida, he was the son of Marvin and Fleeta Peacock. Greg graduated from Louisiana State University where he was a member of the Kappa Alpha fraternity. He also was a renowned business leader in the field of international management consulting for over 30 years, having started several companies. His entrepreneurial skills were legendary, based on a never give up attitude. Friendships were forged everywhere he went, in over 40 countries.

As an active hunter, fisherman and adventurer, Greg traveled the world for business and also for pleasure with his family. He and his family were active in the church, and Greg found a closeness to God when out in nature. He was a big force in the local youth football leagues. His family was the center of his focus and energy, giving him a wealth of support and inspiration.

Greg's relationship with God guided his family and decisions. Greg was the only one that could do Emma Jane's hair without making her cry. He assured Kelli that after Emma passed that he felt God would bless them with another child, Gregory West. In fact, when West was born, Greg was so excited that he had a permanent hunting and fishing buddy. He mentioned once that he waited 42 years to get married because he had been waiting for the perfect wife, which he was so fortunate to find. He loved spending time in places that inspired him: Jim Browning's ranch, Lolli's Pond, anywhere on or in the water, and snow skiing the mountains of Colorado. Those places released the storyteller in him, to the great delight of the lucky souls in attendance.

LSU sports had its biggest fan in Greg. In fact, after LSU won the National Football Championship many of his friends said his boasting was nearly insufferable. A proud peacock to be sure. Throwing the ball with West was a particular joy, especially wearing purple and gold.

Greg was predeceased by daughter Emma Jane Peacock and father Marvin Peacock. Greg is survived by his wife, Kelli Jane Peacock and son, Gregory West Peacock and his mother Fleeta Peacock. His brothers and families Everett (Della) Peacock and children Michael, Matthew, and Angela; Steve (Kari) Peacock and children Steve Jr., Sean, Kim and Kristine; Doug (Jenn) Peacock and children Alexandria and Daniella; brother-in-law Lester (Katie) Stiles and children Lester, Ford and Kendall; and mother-in-law Leslie (Gerald) Teel will all miss him “bigger than time.”

I'm finding it difficult to find the right words to express my gratitude for having been your partner in crime these past 10 years. You brought out the best in me and I'm proud of what we accomplished together.

I will miss the chats, the laughs, the victories, and the the times spent at your house on the back patio with the rest of the "dream team." I know you always had my back and I hope you knew I always had yours.

You will always be "G$" to me and I'll always be "Danger." I miss you, my friend. May you rest now.

I enjoyed working with Greg and my favorite memory of him was when he and I were working together on a account.

His actions, behavior, and style meshed well with me and at some point I said to him, " Greg you are a really nice guy". He said, " Don't tell anyone that as I don't want them to know."

Rest in peace Greg. I enjoyed knowing you.
