Mark Robert Peeples

September 26, 1960 - April 15, 2021

Mark Robert Peeples of Allen, Texas, passed away April 15, 2021 at the age of 60.  He was born September 26, 1960 to Priscilla (Pierce) Peeples and Bob Peeples in Lubbock, Texas. Mark’s formative years were spent in Lubbock, the DFW area, and El Paso, Texas. After high school, Mark moved to Austin, Texas, then New York City, and later to San Francisco, California. In San Francisco, Mark worked at Hamburger Mary’s for more than a decade as a server, bartender, and finally manager. He made many friends along the way who loved him, especially his sense of humor. He later admitted San Francisco always felt like home to him.

Mark loved animals and over the years adopted rescue cats and dogs, most notably Dusty, a lab mix dog, and finally Hank, another lab/pit mix. He was a compassionate pet owner. Mark was also adept at technology and could help us out when we had questions about how to do something with the computer. He was interested in photography and took many pictures along the way. He loved great music and had attended too many live concerts and music venues to count.

Mark is survived by his father, Bob Peeples; stepmother, Vicki Peeples; brother, Matt Peeples; Matt’s partner, Dale Boehne and his stepbrother, Greg Cumbie.

Matt, Family and Friends I am saddened by your loss. Thoughts and prayers for you all. Mark will be missed by so many. Jane Hill Gordon, April 25, 2021 I can’t believe he’s gone. I will never forget him. E, April 24, 2021 Mark was a beloved nephew! So polite, intelligent, and reserved! Love and sympathy to his family. Mark was a precious ring bearer in our wedding in 1968! Bobby and Karen Pierce, April 24, 2021 Meeting each other certainly changed the trajectories of both of our lives. But love remains an endless stream. Be well, my handsome prince, and say, “hi” to your mom for me, ok? Patrick Keyes, April 24, 2021 Precious Mark...you will be missed so very much. Even though it’s been a long time since I’ve seen you I always remember so many fun family times we had when we were all together. I know you are with the rest of our family and loved ones but just know how much we love you down here and how much you will be missed. My prayers are with Matt and your dad and all the rest of the family. Fly high sweet cousin...we will see you again one day. Love to you always.
Vicki Tapp Allen, April 24, 2021 Mark was a kind and lovable man who always had a knack for making all those around him welcome and cared for. He was the wine professional and I often aske for his advice. When you were his customer at any restaurant where he worked, he treated you with special care. He loved his family and his friends and we all loved him. He will be missed. Love you, Mark. Aunt Judy Judy Malandruccolo, April 19, 2021
