John C. Peck

Founder/Owner Auctioneer

Founder/Owner Auctioneer

John is a legend in the auction community with roots starting at 13 in the dusty pens of the Standish Stockyards. He learned how to auction by watching the old-timers that are the fastest in the business, livestock auctioneers. He sold heavy equipment before deciding to create his own path. He has 1,000's of auctions under his belt spanning a 40+ year career. For many years he worked as a machinists at DeVlieg Machine & Tooling Systems Division while he was building John Peck Auctions brick by brick. Eventually, the company grew to the point he had to make the decision to go all in. We appreciate his willingness to risk it all. He still plays an active role in the daily operations of the company, and you will regularly see him working along everyone else. Even in the world of online auctions John Sr's chant is unmistakable. He has been married to his child sweetheart Karen Peck our auction matriarch for over 40 years. They have two children John Jr. & Catherine. They still live at the birthplace of John Peck Auctions - Gladwin, MI 48624

John J. Peck

Owner/Auctioneer

Owner/Auctioneer

John Jr. was born and raised in the auctions selling his first item on a ladder next to his father and mentor at 13. He spent 8 years in U.S. Navy engaged in the Global War On Terrorism. He has traveled the world with Air Squadrons and elected to leave the service as a First Class Petty Officer to join his father in the family business. He is a formally educated gunsmith and has owned 2 successful gun shops selling many thousands of guns. John is responsible for nearly all aspects of online auctions and specifically gun auctions. When selling or buying firearms, he's the guy. At a live auction, it's sometimes hard to tell if it's Senior or Junior selling as their chants are so similar. John received his formal education in the field by one of the best in the business, his father. He is married to his lovely wife Carley and lives in Charlotte, MI with her and their 4 children.
