Robert A. Peppers

Bob Peppers, 85, passed away March 26, 2021 surrounded by his family after struggling with Parkinson disease. Just like he dealt with all experiences in life, Bob managed his illness with strength and grace. He was the co-owner of Peppers Plumbing, the oldest of eight boys, loved to hunt and fish, a huge Gator fan and was the patriarch of the Peppers family.

He was born June 10, 1935 in Chattanooga, Tennessee, the son of Robert A. and Annie L. (Brown) Peppers. Bob graduated from Leesburg High School and also served in the United States Army. After serving, he married his wife, Mary Lee on October 25, 1959 where they celebrated fifty-seven years of marriage until her death. Bob and Mary have two children, daughter, Linda (Jack) Dixon, and son Bobby (Carol) Peppers, four grandsons, Spence (Velita) Dixon, Colby (Jenna) Dixon, RJ (Breann) Peppers, and Ben (Alyssa) Peppers as well as four great grandchildren, Skyler Dixon, Lilly Dixon, Brynlee Dixon, and Avery Dixon.

He is survived by two brothers, Dan (Kathy) Peppers, John (Judy) Peppers and preceded in death by his brothers, Jack, George, Jim, Tom and Leroy Peppers.
Bob will be laid to rest at the Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, Florida. His life will always be remembered and his love will be in our hearts forever.
