Richard Dean Peck, age 62, of Virginia Beach passed away July 1, 2019. Richard was born in Spain on March 29, 1957, to Edward Hubert Peck and Emma Elise Klamm Peck. He is survived by his four children, Anthony, Maryanne, Andrew, and Michael; his spouse of 26 years, Mary Lynn; and grandchild, Frankie.

Richard grew up as a military child, having both parents serve in the United States Army and Air Force. He spent most of his childhood in scenic Cocoa Beach, FL during the height of the Space Race and graduated as valedictorian at Cocoa Beach High School in 1975. Richard attended the United States Naval Academy and graduated near the top of his class in 1979 with a degree in Physics and as a member of Phi Kappa Phi.

Following his time at the Naval Academy, he began his career in the Navy as a submarine nuclear engineer. He went on to serve 20 years in the Navy, active duty and reserves, retiring as a Lieutenant Commander. His career continued as an engineer at Norfolk Naval Shipyard until 2019. Richard proudly dedicated the entirety of his professional career, over 43 years, in the service of the United States Navy.

Richard will always be remembered as a loving father and friend. He loved Scouting and earned the rank of Eagle Scout. He spent much of his adult life supporting his children’s scouting journeys, helping them all attain the highest ranks of Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts respectively. He was a strong advocate for the American Red Cross and Donate Life. Over the course of his life he donated blood countless times, helping to save several lives in the process.

Richard had a strong appreciation for music and some of his favorite artists included Chicago, The Eagles, James Taylor and Karen Carpenter. His legacy will forever be cherished in the lasting memories he made with his family.

In lieu of flowers and money, the family is requesting donations be made in memory of Richard to the Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease Foundation at
