BARTOW - Mr. Duane C. Peacock, 87, passed away Thursday, March 11, 2021 at his home in Bartow, FL. Mr. Peacock was born February 1, 1934 in Fort Meade, FL, and had been a resident of Bartow since 1965. He was the retired Area Superintendent for Polk County Schools, and earlier in his career, Mr. Peacock returned to Fort Meade High School to teach, mentor, and give back to the upcoming youth of Fort Meade High School.

Mr. Peacock also taught Bartow High School, where he also coached track and field as he did in Fort Meade, and won state championships at both schools. He was graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor's degree, University of Southern Mississippi with a Master's degree, and then went on to become a United States Army veteran, and a member of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Bartow.
