Robert "Bob" Peckham, 94, of Webster, NY, passed away on December 7, 2020. Bob was born on March 26, 1926, in Delevan, NY, to Dawson and Garnet Peckham.

Staff Sergeant Robert D. Peckham, 7th Infantry 3rd Division, was a decorated Army veteran, having received the World War II Victory Medal, European Campaign Medal, Good Conduct Medal and Army Occupation Medal.

Bob graduated from Rochester Business Institute. He began his career at Rochester Envelope Company, moving on to his lifelong career as a beloved salesman for F.H. Loeffler Company, Inc., selling beauty supplies to salons throughout Western New York. Two of Bob's other loves were golf (Honorary Lifetime Member, Durand-Eastman Golf Club) and downhill skiing. Known for his ever-present good nature, he touched the hearts of all who knew him.

To the Peckham family: I worked with Bob many years ago at Loeffler's and to this day remember him as a man of immense kindness. Most salespeople dread having a ride along, which is exactly what I was as a new employee. He would load his car at the warehouse and off we'd go to stop at what felt like dozens of salons to drop off orders as he skillfully encouraged customers to create another one for the next time. His clients adored him and he was a valuable teacher of the art of customer service- lessons I remember to this day as I still work in the industry. My condolences to you on the passing of a man who unerringly exemplified kindness, good humor, skilled salesmanship,and patience. Sincerely, Sue Sheldon/ Salon Accessories
