L. Wayne Peacock, affectionately known as ‘Dog’, native of Miami, FLA and longtime resident of Toccoa, GA, passed away on May 15, 2017 in Horse Cave, Kentucky.
He was the fourth generation of the Peacock family born in Miami, a prominent pioneering family of Coconut Grove. After graduating from Coral Gables High School, he joined the Air Force and was stationed in Alaska. In 1955 he married Carol Moulton of Columbus, GA and they enjoyed a wonderful life together for 57 years until her passing in 2012. He worked as an electrical engineer for Sandia Labs and Honeywell, and later in management positions at Fairchild and Precision Monolithics. As CEO and Chairman, he was responsible for the turn-around success of Hybrid Systems in Massachusetts. After selling the company, he and Carol retired to Toccoa to enjoy life. Although retired, Wayne was by no means idle. He was an avid hunter in south Georgia and with his wife Carol M. Peacock, affectionately known as ‘Batsy’, was active in the Toccoa community. Wayne was instrumental in the success of the Georgia Mountain Shooting Association in Eastonollee, GA.
He was preceded in death by his parents, A.V. Peacock, Florence S. Peacock, and his first wife, Carol M. Peacock.
He is survived by his daughter Susan Peacock Monteverde and her husband Bob Monteverde of Athens, GA; his two grandchildren, Caitlin and Geena Monteverde of Athens, GA; his brother Roy Peacock and wife Sue Peacock of Key Largo; his only first cousin Gael C. Stanley and her husband David Stanley of Irmo, S.C.; his sister-in-law, Alice Moulton of Athens, GA; his great-nephew and friend Matt Moulton of Commerce, GA; his second wife Pat Mouser of Horse Cave, KY; many nieces and nephews from the Peacock and Moulton families in Florida and Georgia and Mouser families in Kentucky.
