Heath Peachey, 34, formerly of Waupun

October 11, 2017

Heath A. Peachey, 34, Oxford, formerly of Waupun, passed away unexpectedly Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017, in Fond du Lac.

A memorial gathering will be held Saturday, Oct. 14, from noon to 2 p.m. at Koepsell-Murray Funeral Home, N7199 N. Crystal Lake Road, Beaver Dam, and will conclude with a balloon release at 2 p.m.

Heath was born Oct. 6, 1983, the son of David J. and Vicky L. (Heschke) Peachey in Waupun. He was a 2002 graduate of Waupun High School.

Heath was the kind of person who would give you the shirt off his back. He loved spending time with his family and friends, playing chess, working on cars or just hanging out. He had a love of candy like no other. His love of puzzles rivaled his love of candy. He owned his own welding company, Welding Plus in Coloma. He was funny, loyal, clumsy, a bottomless pit and always a kid at heart. He will be missed by all who knew him.

Heath will be deeply missed by his parents, Vicky and David Peachey of Oxford; his brothers, Glen (Jesica) Peachey of Beaver Dam and Luke (Bobbi) Peachey of Madison; and his paternal grandmother, Mildred Mirovsky of Waupun. He is further survived by aunts, uncles, cousins, other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandmother, Bonnie Alvina (Oppermann) Bunker; maternal grandfather, Maurice Keith Bunker; paternal grandmother, Joyce (Beck) Peachey; paternal grandfather, Oliver “Jim” Peachey; and his uncle and best friend, Darryl Bunker.

Koepsell-Murray Funeral Home in Beaver Dam is serving the family. Online condolences may be made at koepsellfh.com.
