It is with sadness that we announce that Tom Peacock passed away this week. Tom Peacock, the founder of Peacocks Marching World, was involved in marching bands since his Junior High School days. He won many awards as Drum Major, among them the title of State Champion Drum Major. He taught at multiple Drum Major camps for 24 years including California Specialties Camps (which later became USA Camps) and Smith Walbridge. Tom had also taught and worked with Drum Majors from Japan, Australia, Israel, England and Germany.
In 1968 Tom married Nancy Lemons and the following year, Tom started his business called T.P. Enterprises. In 1971, Tom created the American Mace. He was able to develop a mace that would hold up through the high tosses and routines the Drum Majors were doing. He started out working from his garage. In 1974, Tom expanded the Drum Major items he manufactured to include the American Baton and began selling Drum Major supplies and soon he was supplying bands with more and more items, including Colorguard items. In January of 1997, Peacocks Marching World’s website www.marchingworld.com was activated as one of the first marching band supplies websites. Tom and Nancy had retired in 2012 to spend more time with family.
Please see the message below from his wife, Nancy:
“Dear friends, It is with a heavy heart that I am writing to you today. I want to let all those that worked with us for so many wonderful years know that Tom passed away on Monday morning 4/18. He suffered with blood clotting in the lungs that put too much strain on his heart. The relationships through out the years with so many of you were always very dear to Tom and I know he would have wanted you all to know. We know that Tom is home now with our Lord and Savior and are grateful for that.”
