On June 6, 2019, he was awarded the rank of Eagle Scout with Troop 95 in Smithfield, NC. He was a member of Faith Free Will Baptist Church, Four Oaks, NC. An old soul is certainly a good description of Peyton. He loved his family to no end; he loved his church family, friends, his community, Alan Jackson, tradition, and Jesus! He was more than “full of life”, he was “full of trustworthiness and loyalty” It all seems so unfair.
