Cameron Michael Peacock was born in Las Vegas in 1960 to Rex Peacock and Valerie Underwood. He was a man of many talents, construction worker, electrician, welder, plumber, mechanic, salesman, small engine repair and engineering, all self-taught. He could fix anything he got his hands on. He designed and built from scratch a desert race truck he raced for 13 years and surprised himself by winning many several hundred-mile races testing his truck and his driving skills to the max. He enjoyed driving fast and hard, snow and water skiing, dirt bike riding, riding his Harley, surfing, camping, traveling to Europe, Costa Rica, Mexico, Cayman Islands, and cruising the Mediterranean and visiting exotic places. He was a kind, compassionate, intelligent, thoughtful and always treated people with respect. He wanted everyone to know that kindness and compassion are not a weakness. He died at 7:13 PM exactly. That was the number of his race truck. Apparently, he knew what he was doing. Cam is survived by his wife Sherron and her family, his brother Erik/ Jen, several nieces and nephews. He spent four years there and his first memory is picnicking at the end of Fremont Street and watching the nuclear blasts and feeling the radioactive wind. He figures that's why he, his parents and grandparents died young. Then he moved to San Diego California when his dad joined the Navy. There he turned into A surfer. He loved it, and the ocean. Skipped a lot of school to surf. Then his mom got a job in Washington DC and he moved there at age 14. He hated it. First summer in DC he ran away back to San Diego and lived on the beach sleeping under bushes for two months until his mom came and found him. At 18 he began work as a taxi driver in DC. He rented a cab for $20 a day and anything more he made was his. He describes that job as a dog eat dog. One call would have a fleet of taxis racing to the call. That's where he learned to drive fast and technical. After he burned out on that he moved to Virginia for a year to work construction. Then on to Texas where he worked construction with a lot of Hispanic workers who shared their burritos with him. From then on, he had a penchant for hot sauce, hot peppers and any kind of Mexican food. He came to Montana in 1980 to visit his mom who moved here to work for the Institute of the Rockies. After he came here, he stayed for a year because he was too broke to leave. While living in Montana, he became a whitewater rafting guide and enjoyed kayaking as well. He learned how to play bass guitar and joined a band to make money. He met his wife Sherron Mitchell at Luke's bar in 1981 and two years later they married. Cam played in several bands, rock, country, metal, and rhythm and blues. Of course, he didn't make any money in several years so he went on to mechanics which he did until 2000 when he started his own business called HandyCam. Cam wasn't a good capitalist. He hated to charge people. Always had an excuse. Wounded or elderly vet, widow, single mom or friend. So, after five years of losing money he figured he should do something else. Of course, his wife encouraged that. Then he got a job selling auto parts and he did that until 2013. His sister-in-law Jackie lives in Austria and so we have made several trips to hang with family. Cam lived life and loved to the fullest. As he would say onward through the fog. Cam wanted people to remember that kindness and compassion are not a weakness. Cam is survived by his wife Sherron Mitchell, his brother Eric/Jen, sister in law Jackie, brother in law Gary, nieces Angela, Kary, and Quinn. Nephew Donovan. Great niece Brianna. Great nephews Aaron, Teddy, and Philip.

It is with a heavy heart we are sending you our love and comfort as Cam was just too young to leave us, and too ill to stay- his presence will be missed by many, and prayers have been said for both he and Sharron. We love you both.

Cam was a great friend for nearly 40 years. We played music together, skied and worked at Marshall Mountain together and laughed a lot. I will miss him and remember him always.

When I first met you and Cam in Autumn 1982, I realized that you were a more than incredible couple. Fiercely devoted to each other, hugely creative and talented individuals. Cam was one of the kindest, talented, innovative, and most spiritually evolved person I have ever known. He was always willing to help others. Since Sherron has the same compassionate spirit, you two were a great match. Michael S. remarked, "They actually USE all of their toys", such as boats, motorhomes, dirt bike, Harley, skis, etc. And he was right.

Cam, I love you and will miss you - and will hope to see you in the next world.

Sherron
I am so sorry that Cam has passed. We know he had a remarkable life, which he enjoyed to the fullest.
I heard through the grape vine that he was ailing so I am surprised that he finally let go of you and moved on to his next adventure.
Even so, I am saddened by your loss of friend, lover and partner.
If there is any way I can help you in the near future, please contact me.
Jim

Cam was one of a kind. We all loved taking care of him as we never knew what would come out of his mouth next. He was so full of energy, even on his down days. It was a pleasure being able to be his nurse over the years. Cam will be missed greatly by all who knew him

Cam was such a bright light. I loved hearing his thoughts on life and living a good life. Always so thought provoking and lead to some great conversations and memories that I will carry with me. He had such dignity in the face of adversity. Sharon and family I will hold Cam in my heart forever.

We will always remember Cam because he could read the blue prints and facilitated getting the roof on our deck. Now, as we sit in the "Peacock Room", we can easily bring back lots of recollections. The most amazing, is the rebuilding of their Dakota pickup, while bones were breaking, and doses of every protocol known to man, were being administered. That's one tough human being, and thank goodness he married another one. Love, Marcia and Tom Scheidecker
