Arthur Monroe Peach Obituary

Arthur Monroe Peach, husband, father, grandfather, veteran, engineer, Christian, died peacefully at home in Bloomfield, Michigan, April 27, 2021, at the age of 91. Born in Saltillo, Mississippi, the youngest of seven children, Monroe ran a business raising and shipping queen bees before enlisting in the Air Force to work in communications during the Korean War. After leaving the Air Force, he attended Mississippi State on the GI Bill graduating with a degree in Agricultural Engineering. Though he loved his native Mississippi, the auto industry brought him to Michigan where he met his future wife Liz at church the first Sunday after arriving. They raised their three children Stephen (Polina), Amy (Brian), and Dorinda (Patrick) in Detroit and Bloomfield Township, and he built a 41-year career as an engineer at Chrysler Corporation. Monroe was a man of many talents. He could do anything from managing a beehive to planting a garden to fixing an appliance to building a house. He could tell you how he did it and draw you a picture of it on the 3x5 card always ready in his pocket. While his talents were many, his true love was for his wife of almost 61 years, his children, and his nine grandchildren Stephanie, Houston, Grace (Aaron), Garrett, Gwen, Maggie, Thomas, Henry, and James. They were his joy and are his legacy. His house was always full of the laughter of grandchildren and in his later years the question of the morning was “who is here today.” Monroe’s life was full of hard work, love of family, and service to others that he would tell you was centered on his Christian faith. That was the true foundation of his life. He was a long-time member of Bloomfield Hills Baptist Church where his presence will be greatly missed. Monroe will be buried at Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly, Michigan, on Tuesday, May 4, 2021, in a private family service. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to The Henry Ford. It held a special place in his life as the site of his wedding and many years of wonderful visits and memories with his children and grandchildren.
