Cambridge-Henry B Peabody, 78 of Cambridge passed away on Monday November 25, 2019 surrounded by his family.
Henry was a lifelong resident of Cambridge born on August 6, 1941 to the late Belle and George Peabody Sr. He was the youngest of 5 children. At an early age he took over the family farm and where he worked up until his death. On June 13, 1964 he married the late Harriet Hewitt, his soulmate. Together they grew the farm and raised a family and became a very prominent figure in the farming community. Besides the farm, Henry trucked cattle to all the local fairs and state fair for other farm families. He could always be found the week of the fair in barn 6 smiling and talking about how well his grandkids did showing cows and goats. In most recent years Henry enjoyed going to sporting events cheering on his grandkids. Henry enjoyed traveling to see friends and family in Pennsylvania, California, and Hawaii. No matter where he went, he would know someone and if he didn’t, he would just start talking and become friends.
He is survived by his children Anna (Jim) Schworm, Charles Peabody, John (Ruth) Peabody, and Cindy (Larry) Casavant, several grandchildren and great grandchildren, a brother Charles Peabody, brother in law David (Sandy), sister in law Carol Peabody and numerous nieces, nephews, and their families.
