On Sunday, September 22, 2019, Richard Jonathon "Rik" Peacher, loving husband and father of four children, passed away at the age of 46.
Rik was born on January 4, 1973, in McAllen, Texas. Until the end of his high school career he lived in Beaumont, Texas. Following graduation from A&M Consolidated High School in 1991, he went on scholarship to play soccer at Long Island University in New York. Rik was a proud business owner in the Brazos Valley for more than 12 years. On May 20, 2006, Rik married Laurie Jones. They raised three outstanding sons, Shepherd, Anthony, and Charlie, and a beautiful daughter, Payton.
Rik had a true passion for soccer, and spending time with his children. He combined his two favorite activities in order to have some of his best times. Rik passionately coached all three of his boys as they grew up. Music was another interest of his, and he was an avid listener; whether it be while working or relaxing, he always had his music playing. Rik was an honorable, dedicated and providing husband and father. He was known for his handsome looks, outgoing personality, and stunning dance skills.
