Mark Daniel Peak was born December 26, 1957, in Jacksonville, Fla., the son of George Truett Peak and Helen Phillips Peak. He graduated from Wolfson High School. After attending Martha Berry College in Rome, Ga., Mark returned to Jacksonville where he went to work for Roma Foods in 1978. In 1988, Mark married Teresa (Terry) D. Brannen. After dedicated service to the company in Orlando, Atlanta and Cairo, Ga., Mark was in his 40th year with the company, which became Performance Food Group (Powell).

Mark loved his work, beginning as a truck driver and working his way to the position of the President for PFG/Powell. When he was not working, Mark was busy with projects at home or spending time with friends and family. Mark enjoyed boating, cookouts, listening to music, playing Jeopardy and, in general, having fun and making sure that everyone around him was also having fun. Mark was a friend to many people from all walks of life, and if you knew him, you loved spending time with Mark. He was very generous and compassionate and tagged everyone with a special nickname. If his life here on earth was a book, it would be many volumes long, filled with stories from a multitude of narrators.

Survivors include his wife, Terry Peak; his children, Cameron Lyon of Atlanta, Ga., Rachael Peak of Bainbridge, Savannah Peak & Travis Mann of Dallas, Ga., and Cody Peak also of Bainbridge; his sisters, Pat Spakausky and her husband, Patrick, of Jacksonville, and Karen Ostrow and her husband, Steve, of St. Augustine, Fla.. Mark was preceded in death by his parents.
