Blair Alexander Peacock, P.Eng. passed away peacefully, in the arms of his loved ones, on Monday, January 19, 2015 at the age of 60 years after a long and courageous battle with multiple myeloma.
Blair was born in Brandon, MB, and raised in Winnipeg where he graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Civil Engineering degree. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and companion. He was devoted to his family, who meant the world to him, and treasured time spent with them. He also had a myriad of lifelong friends who will remember his sly sense of humour. A quiet, honest and principled man, Blair had a stellar career first with Alberta Transportation and then with Torchinsky/AMEC where he was a Senior Vice President. An athlete all his life, Blair played university soccer while earning his engineering degree, and played hockey until his diagnosis. He had a lifelong love of golf and got his third hole in one in August at Sirocco, his home course. He also had a special love for the Graham family cottage at Moose Lake and made annual trips there from Alberta with his family each summer.
Blair’s memory will be cherished by his daughters, Brooke, Dawn (Graham Shanks) and Brianne (Jarvis Schmid); precious grandchildren, Kalia, Myla and Jackson; and his loving and constant companion Heather Tudor and her family. He is also survived by his brothers Kent Peacock and Jeff Gillespie; sister Valerie Peacock; brothers-in-law and sisters–in-law, Cam, Jan, Dave and Marsha Graham; and nieces and nephews, Giselle, Taylor, Ryan, Andrew, Alex and Derek. He was predeceased by his beloved wife Carol in 2007; by his parents Jack and Betty Peacock; step-mother Louise Peacock; Carol`s parents Donald and Vivien Graham; sister Carolyn Gillespie; and nephew Christopher.
