pic PeacockAuburn- James B Peacock, 66, of Dresden, passed away September 21, 2023, with his wife by his side.   He passed at the Androscoggin Hospice House after a long but seemingly short battle with cancer.

James was born on June 23, 1957, in Pawtucket, RI, to James Peacock and Nina Lepeuschenko.

When he was 5 years old, he threw Uncle Billy on the floor. The dent hasn’t gone away since. However, his love and care for his family, human and mechanical, is still felt today. Jimmy’s love of cars started when he was 17, going to work in the garage, using the money to go drag racing in his beloved ’69 Roadrunner, which he maintained using the funds from said garage. He continued to restore and show classic cars in which he won an exorbitant number of rewards over a period of 20+ years of car shows.

A successful businessman, he was the owner of Peacock Plumbing and Heating, he then opened Jim’s Klassic Klunkers, which dealt in antique, one of a kind, classic cars. Jimmy was also an eclectic 40-year collector, gathering all facets of petroliana and memorabilia. He is survived by his loving wife Connie Peacock, married for 29 years, his sister Robin Beasley of Rochester New Hampshire, his brother Bill Peacock of West Gardiner Maine, his sister Jessie Peacock of Abingdon Maryland, 3 stepchildren, 2 “Unofficially” adopted stepsons, Eric Zaharchuk and Michael Santangelo, several nieces and nephews, 15.5 step grandchildren, and 2.5 step-great-grandchildren. He is predeceased by his parents, James Peacock and Nina Peacock, and his sister Elizabeth Cook.

There will be a visitation at Kincer Funeral Home, 130 Pleasant St., Richmond, ME, from 5pm -8pm on Tuesday, September 26, 2023.  He will be buried on Wednesday, September 27, 2023, at the Pine Grove Cemetery, in Dresden, at 11am.
