Tom passed away peacefully at home from heart failure with his wife Michelle and children. Tom grew up in Colonia and resided in Garwood, NJ at the time of his passing. His life was filled with so much love. He adored his wife and loved his children Ashley, Hailee and TJ Darling. Bear, Pepper, Cheeks and Irish were their animals and they were a big part of his life.

Tom will be remembered as a loving and devoted family man as well as supportive brother, uncle and friend.

Tom is survived by his wife, children, brothers Stephen, Joseph and Jeffrey Peake, Sisters Kimberly Wright-Peake, Donna Cyphers, Niece Jill Askew and Nephew Nicholas Cyphers. He is predeceased by his parents Edward Peake, Bernadette Peake and his adopted parents Richard Buess and Barbara Buess.

Along with raising a family, Tom and Michelle were able to have a successful Home Inspection Business and Hair Salon.

Tom’s thoughtfulness extended beyond his immediate family. He felt honored to be a former volunteer Firefighter in several communities including Colonia, Iselin and Quakertown NJ. The passion of being a Fireman ran through his blood. Helping people is what he loved to do no matter if you were family, friend or a stranger. He had a huge heart and passed down so much of his passion to his children.

Tom was deeply loved and will be missed greatly. Although Tom is no longer with us, he will Forever be in Our Hearts. Godspeed, until we meet again. We will love you for Eternity!

In Lieu of flowers to donate to: Liberty Hose Co. No. 1 Garwood Volunteer Fire Department P.O. BOX 255
Garwood, NJ 07027.

A memorial service will be held at a later date due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

I remember when the ice storm hit us hard in northern New York and Ted as i have always known him help our families out with generators and any other issues that arose. Even when his truck's transmission broke. He was an open and honest man and like a brother to me. He will be missed but never forgotten. Rest in peace my friend love always. Gerald Rabideau

Teddy was such a great friend to me throughout my childhood & into my twenties. I remember sitting in my kitchen talking to him on the phone while twisting the phone cord for hours. He could always make me laugh. He was kind & helpful not only to me but to my parents as well. I'm grateful that I was able to reconnect with him thru Facebook and was able to see what a wonderful man he continued to be thru his love for Michelle & his kids. He will be truly missed. Our world was a better place with him in it.
R.I.P. My Friend💕😢
