Harold Allan Peacock was born in Denver, Colorado the third of six children. He resided in Denver until he went off to Southern Colorado State College (now USC-Pueblo) and earned an electrical engineering degree in research and development. While attending college he worked for KCSJ and KOAA-TV. Upon graduation he was recruited by Texas Instruments but he did not want to go to Texas and discovered that he loved television. In the early years he worked “the board”, made commercials, climbed poles, installed new equipment and maintained the old. Whatever needed to be done he did with a joyful heart. Eventually he became the assistant chief engineer still climbing poles, maintaining and installing equipment. When friends would be watching TV and saw that there was a problem they would say to themselves that Harold was probably on his way to the station to get things fixed. And that was often true. He enjoyed 49 years with KOAA-TV except for his 4 years in the Air Force during the Viet Nam war where he was stationed in Thailand maintaining the electronic equipment on airplanes. Harold and Cheryl met on a blind date set up by his sister, Cheryl’s best friend in college. They were married on March 29, 1975. The highlight of their years together was hosting 2 exchange students. Both Vered and Benedicte became their “daughters” and have been blessed to spend quite a bit of time with each of them and their families. The girls filled Harold’s heart with joy. Harold and Cheryl both loved to travel both in the United States and abroad. Their last trip, this past April, was to Scotland and Ireland with Harold’s brother and sister-in-law.
Harold is predeceased by his parents; his favorite lady and second “mom” Vivian McGuire; his sister, Norma; brother-in-law, Shelly and nephew Shane. He is survived by his wife Cheryl; “daughters”, Vered (Michael) and Benedicte (Thomas); brothers, Lewis (Carol) and Noland (Denise); sisters, Mary and Debby (Pete) and brother-in-law Lloyd along with members of Cheryl’s family Cindy (Randy), Cathy (Bill) and Chad (Dian). Harold is also survived numerous nieces and nephews, cousins and by very special friends Pat & Kanna McGuire, Bob & Nancy Piatt and Kent and Deb Steward.
