- August 29, 2018

Bruce Lee Peck, age 57, of Belle Fourche, died on Sunday, August 26, 2018 from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident near Pactola Lake.  

Bruce was born May 11, 1961 in Rapid City to Donald & Sharon (Enerson) Peck. From an early age Bruce had an interest in speeding around in anything he could get his hands on. His Grandpa Bud called him Parnelli Jones, after a famous race car driver, because he would often find Bruce speeding around on tractors, snow mobiles & the like. Bruce (and wife Misty) would later own a pizza parlor named Parnelli’s. Bruce attended school in Belle Fourche and Sturgis After high school Bruce served in the US Army for two years. He married Dorrie Amiotte in the early 1980’s. They were divorced a year later. They had one son, Justin Daniel Peck. Bruce then moved to Gillette, Wyoming. He worked in construction and in the oilfield. Bruce married Linda Jacobson of Gillette in 1984. They were married for five years. Linda’s children Doss and Cassy were very special to Bruce. In 1992 he married Misty Barber in Gillette. He was Dad to stepson Nicholas Montgomery. In 1997 Chandler Peck was born. Bruce was ecstatic over having a young son. He spent every moment he could with Chandler. He taught him everything he knew, including his love for motorcycles. Bruce and Misty moved to Bruce’s home town of Belle Fourche in 2001. They divorced in 2005. Chandler began motocross racing when he was 4. For the next 12 years you could find Bruce and Chandler traveling to races most every weekend in the summer. Bruce was arguably the most vocal parent at the track! You could always hear him cheering Chandler on. He was a very good father and had so much pride in all Chandler’s accomplishments. After Chandler graduated from high school and enlisted in the Navy, Bruce resumed his own interest in motorcycles. He had his own bikes for great rides with friends. Last year he rode his motorcycle to Biloxi, MI to visit Chandler. He and a friend also developed a business customizing bikes and selling them. Through this very difficult time, Bruce’s family takes comfort in knowing that at the time of his death, Bruce was doing what he loved…riding free through the beautiful Black Hills with friends.
