Chaplain Ivan Peacock Passes

with No Comments

The following announcement about Ivan Peacock was sent from the public affairs officer for the Sumner County Cadet Squadron, Tennessee Wing, Civil Air Patrol.

Retired Civil Air Patrol Chaplain Ivan Peacock passed away in Tennessee.

It is with great sadness that we share with you the passing of our former Chaplain for the squadron, Ivan Peacock, this morning. His passion for Civil Air Patrol and service to his community was inspirational to say the least and will truly be missed. He was an integral part of our squadron for a long time and truly had a heart for the program and what it offers our cadets. I’m honored and very grateful to have had the opportunity to serve as a volunteer along side Mr. Peacock. He definitely left behind quite a legacy! There is a link to his obituary below, along with numerous links to a few articles written about him in recent years (100th birthday celebration, Chaplain of the year – on a regional and national level; CAP retirement after 20 years of volunteer service with the organization; WWII veteran; community involvement; active in church, etc.) .
