David Lee Peebles of Lyons, Ohio passed away on June 15 at the age of 59 from complications related to lung cancer. He is survived by his loving wife Lise, whom he correctly believed to be the most beautiful woman he’d ever seen, his youngest son Cory, who received his easy going charisma, and his eldest son Joshua, who inherited his rugged good looks. He also felt very blessed to have the love and support of his wonderful mother Helen Peebles, his adoring sister Penny (Jeff) Waack, three beautiful nieces (Kendra, Hayley, and Whitney), and their families. He loved all of his family very much and was immensely proud of both of his sons. He is preceded in his passing by his incredible father Harold (Hap) Peebles.
David graduated from Evergreen in 1972 via Four County Career Center, where he was honored as a Wall of Fame recipient in 2005 for his artistic accomplishments. He was a highly respected and incredibly talented woodworker and had many great friends from that creative community. Over the course of his life, David played drums like a hurricane, raced muscle cars, dabbled in pottery, rode a Harley, cleaned chimneys, and worked construction. He loved The Who, the Detroit Tigers, animals (especially his cat Trixie), the Ohio State Buckeyes, and brainstorming new inventions.
