TUPPER LAKE - Joshua Clayton Peck was born on May 5, 1992, to Clarence T. and Jenifer L. Peck. He was the sixth addition to the combined Peck clan.
Josh graduated from Tupper Lake High School in June 2011. In high school, he was a member of the Tupper Lake Hockey Association. A little bit angel, a little bit devil, a peacemaker, a troublemaker, a lover, a fighter and a friend, Josh lived life on his own terms and never took no for an answer. Josh loved life and lived it to the fullest.
On May 2, 2012, Josh started his paving business CMP Paving and Contracting in honor of his brother Christopher Michael Peck, who passed on May 2, 1999. It was Joshua's dream to do this big just like everything else he did.
The passing of his brother Chris was one of his biggest sorrows. In addition was the loss of his cousin, Jarrod Yando.
Josh is survived by his parents, Clarence and Jen; his brothers: Matthew Hathaway, Jordan Varden, Joseph and Jessie Peck; a sister, Camille O'Mally; grandmother Elizabeth "Betty-Ann" Varden; his family: Suzie Varden, Scott and Lara Varden, Patrick and Patricia Varden, Janice Varden and Mike Jones, Mary Jo Varden and Daniel Morgan and John and Kim Varden; and all of his family, especially his two beloved cousins Erin "Annie" Varden and Ronald "Ronnie" LaScala; and countless loved friends.
On July 25, 2012, God needed many miracles, and he knew just the man for the job!
With the loss of Josh, many lives were saved, as he was indeed a full organ donor. The family would ask that you please consider being an organ donor. In a time of sorrow it brings ease to the heart knowing that you can help.
