James William “Peck” Pennington, 77, of New Salem, passed away Wednesday, May 11, 2022.

Peck spent the last few days of his life surrounded by four generations of family, in the home he and his wife built decades prior. An avid outdoorsman and Georgia native, Peck spent much of his childhood discovering and exploring caves all over the sides of Lookout Mountain.  He also developed an interest in hunting and would continue this throughout his life. In 1966 Peck met Judith (Judy) Elaine Lumpkin, and they were married shortly thereafter. Together they built a home that would become the center of family life for themselves, their children, grandchildren and great–grandchildren. Peck spent much of the last two decades of his life doing what he loved most: prairie dog hunting and fishing with his wife as they traveled across the United States. In his final years Peck would often spend his days at home hosting shooting competitions with his family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Hershel and Evelyn Pennington, wife, Judy Pennington and son, Jeremy Pennington.

Survivors include his daughters, Barbara (Danny) Blevins and Cristy (Brian Sherman) Cox; sisters, Ginger (Larry) Scruggs and Karen (Eddie) McBryar; brother, Kenneth (Becky) Pennington; grandchildren, Brandon (Alex) Barton, Corey (Kristen) Barton, Macy Cox, Gabrielle Cox, and Ambry Cox; great-grandchildren Eli Barton and Kason Barton.

A celebration of life was Friday, May 13 at Moore Funeral Home with Brother Jim Blaylock officiating.
