PEACOCK, William Hubert - At the Village of Glendale Crossing, in London on Saturday, November 5th, 2011, Mr. William Hubert (Hugh) Peacock, in his 83rd year. Beloved husband of Jean (Donaghey). Deeply loved and proud Dad of Ted (Shannon) and Geoff, and loving friend to Mary Rowe; and Grandpa to his cherished Grand-daughter Memphis, who is a gift to us all. Survived by his sister Elizabeth (George) of Islington. Dear brother in law of Susie Williams of Sault Ste Marie, Brian (Jo) of Chatsworth and Steve (Fran) of Richmond Hill. Loving uncle of Bruce, Anne, Jackie, Cathy, Laura, Patti, Carolyn, Jordan, Abby, Jane, Debbie, Sarah, Leah, and Tim. Cousin of Michael Peacock, of Ottawa. Predeceased by his brother in law Sid, and by his nephew Steve Donaghey. He was a true gentleman of ethics, integrity, kindness and unselfishness, who lived his life with passion, understanding, and a delicious sense of humor. His honesty, wisdom, loyalty and unconditional love for his family was an inspiration, and while deeply grieving, we remember with gratitude the happiness and good times we all had throughout his life. The family wishes to thank the staff at Glendale Crossing, Dr. Mandar Jog, and Dr. Richard Chan for their care throughout Hugh's complex medical journey. In keeping with Hugh's wishes cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held at a later date.

He's my uncle Hubie. He never stopped tickling my knees. He showed my kids how to walk upstairs on his hands! He saw good in everything, loved engineering & every single student. He was the Pie Man. The reason I went to UWO the best Engineering prof ever. He taught me how to drive in his 1967 Mustang Shelby at age 14. How cool was that? Man did I love that guy! Always the best and brightest of all. No one better. And when he looks down on us, he knows we'll try and do him proud.
my condolences

Hugh was a fine Professor and a great guy, respected by all who knew him. He was a great advisor to his students and genuinely cared about them. I am sorry to hear of his passing.
