Keith E. Peck, age 79 of Rhinelander, died Monday, Sept. 19, 2016, at his home. He was born Oct. 1, 1936, in Ontario, Wisc., to Kenneth and Fern (Dorner) Peck. Keith served in the United States Air Force and then the Army National Guard. He moved to Janesville, where he was employed at General Motors for over 43 years and was a proud member of U.A.W. Local 95. He married Sandra Johnson on October 17, 1964, and together they raised their family of two children. Following retirement, Keith and Sandy moved to Rhinelander.
Keith was a man who could visit with anyone and will be fondly remembered as quite a talker and storyteller. He enjoyed watching his Cubs and Packers and also loved to fish and hunt.
Keith is survived by his wife of 51 years, Sandy Peck of Rhinelander; a daughter, Rhonda (Dale) Collins of Lake Tomahawk; a son, Jeff (Shawn) Peck of Williston, N.D.; two granddaughters, Amber Collins (Andy) of Lake Tomahawk and Andrea Collins (AJ) of Lake Tomahawk and Oshkosh; a brother, Doug Peck of Desoto; nephew, Steven Peck of Janesville; and special nephew and niece, Travis and Jodi Krueger and family of Cataract. He is further survived by brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces, and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, two sisters, and an infant brother.
There will be no services held at this time. The family will hold a private memorial service at a later date. (Carlson Funeral Home)
