Billy Ray Peeples

Billy Ray Peeples was born July 9, 1950 in Louise, Mississippi to Maurine Henderson Peeples and James Pittman Peeples. 

He never met a stranger and was known by so many as the Peanut Man, yet he was a private man in many aspects of his life.  So many knew him in his travels with his peanuts. He was always a hard worker regardless if others could not see the fruit of his labors.

Psalms 90:17  NIV  May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us— yes, establish the work of our hands.

Billy Ray sustained injuries on June 8, 2018 as the Lord took him home June 19, 2018 where he is at peace with his mother and his three older brothers: Pitt, Toolie, and Jimmy.

He is survived by Shirley Peeples, Shirley McIntyre, Barbara Daniels (Glen), Jerry Peeples (Velda), Harold Peeples (Carolyn),  all of Louise, Pat Peeples (Lisa) of Yazoo, Jan Peeples of Jackson and Michael Peeples of Texas.
