Michale Dean Peacock, 59, of Gorman passed away Feb. 2, 2021, doing what he loved…ranching. He was born Aug. 3, 1961, in Breckenridge, Texas to Dean and Joy (Trout) Peacock. He married his loving wife, Donna Lynn Maltby, May 3, 2015, in Desdemona.

Michale was raised on the Nail Ranch in Albany, Texas and graduated from Albany High School. He attended Eastland High I.S.D. for a number of years and played baseball.  

Michale was a true cowboy and worked many different cattle ranches throughout Texas and New Mexico. He loved raising cattle, working the land, fishing, hunting, baseball and golfing. Anything that allowed Michale to spend time outdoors in God’s country brought him joy. 

Early in life, he was highly active in livestock judging, stock shows, and 4-H activities. Later in life, he enjoyed participating in ranch rodeos, The Texas Cattle Raisers Association, chuck wagon cookoffs and just enjoyed the old west way of life. 

Michale loved his family and many dear friends. He will be immeasurably missed by all who knew and loved him.

He is survived by his wife, Donna Peacock; mother, Joy O’Brien; son, Freddie Peacock; daughters, Jennifer Goodson (Robert) and Barbara Tinkle (James); stepchildren, Lindi Hamm (Jessie Joe), Stephanie Lancaster (Shelby), Dylan Anderson, Brody Anderson, Keshia Chaney and Kymberlee Wyatt; grandchildren, Bailey Peacock, Emilianna Coutreras, Nathan Fron, Klayson Guajardo, Hudson Guajardo, Dax Hamm, Kyefer Hamm, Breannah Peacock, Nicholas Goodson and Emilee Goodson; great-grandchildren, Brayden Stephenson and Chase Stephenson; brother, Steven Peacock; sisters, Cindy Benefield (Steve), Melissa Simmons (Delfino), and Tanya Black; numerous nieces, nephews, and other extended family. 

Michale was preceded in death by his father, Dean Peacock; and step-father, Bennie O’Brien.

Graveside services were held Sunday, Feb. 7, in Desdemona Cemetery, Desdemona, Texas with Brother Robert Whitefield officiating. 

Serving as pallbearers were Jessie Joe Hamm, Klayson Guajardo, Hudson Guajardo, James Fowler, Levi Simmons, Jace Simmons and Bradley O’Brien. Honorary pallbearers were Delfino Vasquez, Dylan Anderson, Brody Anderson and Shelby Lancaster.
