Jonathan Derek Peavey, age 36 of Lowell, passed away with his family at his side on Sunday, January 27, 2019. He will be deeply missed by his parents, Larry and Theresa Peavey; brother Larry Peavey Jr.; sisters Angie (Jason) McCulley, Stephanie (Daniel) Schell; nieces and nephews,  Elonzo, Tiana-Marie, Genevieve; aunts; uncles; and cousins. Jonathan was his family’s very heart. He inspired the world to overcome any obstacle that one could face. He helped us know the depths of God’s love and the extent of His mercy. Some of Jonathan’s favorites things were hanging out with his family that he loved dearly, going to the movies, watching and attending any type of race car event, going on road trips, and going fast as a racing Captain for myTEAM TRIUMPH. Jonathan’s story is so rich that we know his memory will live on to provoke the very best in the hearts of all who get to know his legacy.

…3 Neither this man nor his parents sinned, said Jesus, but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in him.

John 9:1-3

  1. How my heart breaks for you all. Jonathan truly was/is the heart of your family. Everything you have done for 36 years has had Jonathan at the center—and that is why Jonathan did more than survive for 36 years. You gave him a rich and full life—and he gave back more! It’s his turn to run, jump, talk freely, breathe freely and sing at the top of his lungs to his Lord and Savior. And, that is your comfort…and mine, too. Jonathan is in his real Home, and this isn’t good-bye–it’s see you later, Jonathan! Praying for you as you go thru this very difficult time. We love you guys!

  2. Beautiful Johnathan. You have touched so many lives, and pointed us all to God’s truth and faithfulness.
    My heart is heavy for all who love and cherish you. You will be deeply missed, Jonathan, and forever loved. Now you are in the presence of our Savior, Jesus. And this is very very good.
