Trying to ascertain WHY this particular location was selected as Mr. Peek’s final resting place. I can not find any of his family members buried there. His wife is from Australia and I see none of her family members there. Reports are very spotty regarding his personal life but reports state he spent a lengthy time living at the Cayman Islands.
It is no big deal and it appears to be a peaceful location away from the bustling masses of humanity but I remain curious as to WHY this particular spot.
Obbop, he died in his sleep at his home in Farmington, Missouri. This cemetery is in the same town.
Catherine Peek was not Australian, at least not to my knowledge Gerry Beckley married an Australian. Dan lived nearby to Zolman
Actually, Catherine Peek was part Australian. I stand corrected.
Dan’s mum recently passed and will be buried here. His father is buried here.
