  1. I want to send my condolences to the Peyton family. I never had the chance to meet Mr. Peyton but I do know that he made a difference in everyone’s life he touched. I have been a close friend of his son Gary for years. You can see the type of person Mr. Peyton was through the type of person Gary is. Our prayers are with his wife and the rest of the Peyton family as he will be dearly missed. He is now with our God in heaven where we will all be joined back together in time. Please pray with us as the Peyton family go through their time to remember all the good times that were spent with him. Pray for the family as they go through the healing time of their loss. Our sadness and love is with the family.
