Biographical Sketch of Emory Virgil Peck He is not dead, this friend, hot dead, But in the path we mortals tread Gone some few trifling steps ahead. And nearer to the end; So that you, too, once past the bend Shall meet again, as face to face This friend you fancy dead. Emory Virgil Peck was born November No-vember 10, 1906 at Lehi. It was in the late fall while the beets were being harvested; in fact, his father was hauling beets at the time and his mother's sister had to walk a mile or so to meet him and get him back for the event. Virge was the baby of the family and idolized by them all his" life. He was never very strong. While Just 18 months old he almost died with pneumonia. He recovered from this attack, but at the age of 12 he again suffered with it and this time was left with weak lungs; a condition he never fully overcame But through all his years of suffer ing, his patience has been remark able. He never complained, and was pleasant with everyone, especially espe-cially his family. Virge had hosts of friends, who will remember him for his cheerful disposition and clever dry wit. His father and brother tell how he used to keep them laughing in the cow barn, during milking time each day. And he stayed at his work, not complaining even though he could hardly walk to the barn; Just because he was so independent. However, he was forced to give up even this task about three months ago. Since then his health has been gradually falling. But until un-til last Sunday did he give up and go to bed. From then on he gradually grad-ually became worse and Tuesday was taken to the hospital, where he passed away on Thanksgiving morning at 3:30 a. m. Expert medical doctors did all in their power to help him but to no avail. Virge was a member of the L. D. S. church. At the age of 25 he met and fell in love with Eva Jacobsen of Orem, whom he married on April 31. 1931. They were married nine years and have two children, VaLois, 5. and Elwyn. 2. At the time of his passing Virge was an Elder in the Priesthood; a counselor in the fourth Quorum of Elders, working with Rulon Peterson Peter-son and Spencer Chatfield. He was also a ward teacher and with his wife had been through the temple.
