Brian Allen Peckham (64) originally from Galva, KS passed away Thursday, August 5th, 2021 at Villa St. Francis in Olathe, KS.   

He was born June 15, 1957, in Salina, KS to Ira “Wally” Peckham and Anita Mae (Wiliams) Peckham.  He was preceded in death by his parents and siblings Stephen Peckham and Cathryn Jaeger. 

Brian will be greatly missed by his wife, Sherry Peckham, his daughter Amber (Steve) Whisler all from Overland Park, KS, Crystal Peckham, Jamie Peckham, and son Jeremy (Amanda) Peckham all from Lincoln, NE, and many friends and family.  

He was an amazing Papa who shared his love of antique cars, oldies music, and Coca-Cola memorabilia with his eight grandchildren: Kaden and Taegan Whisler, Deja’nae and Dar’rion Smith, Da’Vion Bland, Da’Naejah Anthony, and Peyton and Paxton Peckham. 

Brian knew no strangers, he spoke to everyone he met and loved to make people laugh.  He was known for his wit and always being goofy.  He NEVER truly grew up, even giving the nurses at his nursing home and Hospice a hard time until the very last day.  His memory will live on in the hearts of all who loved him.
