Obituary

On Saturday, August 19, 1944, Gene Autry Peak, the eighth of nine children, was born to Emett and Lillie Begley Peak, in a small two room cabin in the mountains of Virginia. The family would move to Ohio while Gene was nine years old. There, he later would graduate from Wayne Local High School, with the love of his life, Brenda Sue Jones, whom he married three months later, on August 2, 1963. They would produce four sons; Vincent, Tracey, Casey, and Deron. These would give them eight grandchildren, then four Great-Grandchildren.

On June 30, 1968, Gene and Brenda dedicated their lives to their Lord, Jesus , whom they would serve faithfully together for the rest of their lives.

Gene acheived two years of college studies, mostly Bible and Church Growth. He also earned many certificates in industrial training and Bible teaching seminars. Gene has held many positions in the local church, as well as in the local Association Conferences.

He was preceded in death by his father, Emett Monroe Peak; mother, Lillie Melinda Begley/Peak; brothers; Walter Scott Peak, Norman Leo Peak, and Garnie Levi Peak; sister, Edna Marie Peak/Hall/Lane. He is survived by his wife Brenda Sue Jones/Peak, a brother, Lyda Palmer Peak (Ruby), and a sister Dorothy Crystal Simpson/Cottingim;sons: Vincent Gene Peak,Tracey Gene Peak,Casey Gene Peak, and Deron Gene Peak (Debra), eight grandchildren and four Great-grandchildren, and counting.

He dearly loved his sons and was always involved in the activities they were in: School, Scouts,Church and Sports.

He and Brenda loved to travel, and Southern Gospel Music (another love of his life),played a great part in these travels.Through Southern Gospel Music,they, along with Skeeter and Denise Glover, formed a gospel trio, “southern Praise” and they traveled and sang together for seven years.

Gene loved serving God in any capacity, and was always willing … and now he is “Feasting At The Table Of The King.”

    Gene was a very sweet and amazing guy. I will never forget how much he loved the Lord with all his heart. He has inspired me to be just like that I am blessed to know such a guy like him and I will always remembers finding him in the Amaway Center watching The Magic do there magic lol. And especially with his amazingly group The Southern Praise with Denies and his beautiful wif by his side praising Jesus for all that's he has done. I am very happy right now for him cuz he has finally gone to where he always wanted to go all these years he is now in the hands of God. Bless you to the family and to Brenda my prayers are with you and others who know him but just always remember he is much better now.
