James Peach Passing
James Ray Peach passed peacefully on September 12, 2016. He was born on September 28, 1940 in Parker's Prairie, Minnesota to Alice and Frank Peach. His twin brother, Jerry, lived only a few months.
Jim served in the Army in Korea before returning to Minnesota. Jim was a jack of all trades who could fix or build anything. He did plumbing, electrical, carpentry, repairs, and construction. Jim lived in Colorado most of his adult life, and after traveling the western states for a few years, he settled in Arizona City in 2010. Kathy, Jim's wife and fellow Denver Broncos fan, passed on in April of 2013.
Jim is survived by his mother, Alice of New York Mills, Minnesota, his brother, David Peach, his daughters Dawn Sloane of Tucson and Jacqualine Hallerbach of Reno, Nevada and his son, Tim Peach of Denver, Colorado.
A memorial for Jim will be held on Sunday, September 18 at 4 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church in Casa Grande. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the church in Jim's memory.
Our Lodge has lost a great member, James Ray Peach. James was a wonderful man and craftsman and dear to all who knew him. I personally worked on several jobs with James and he always kept me in a good mood with his humor. He was a kind and gracious man and will be missed by all! RIP Brother....
