Andrew Jones Peebles, age 18, of Nashville, Ark., went home on Monday, March 20, 2023. He was born July 30, 2004, in Texarkana, Texas, to Damon and Michelle Smith Peebles.
Andrew was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Nashville. He was a 2023 senior at Nashville High School and was a proud Scrapper. Andrew wore #56 and played right guard and defensive tackle. He was a two-year letterman in football, a senior representative on the student council, and a member of the NHS Spanish Club. He was selected by faculty as a 2022 Boy’s State Delegate and held the position of Attorney General while attending. Andrew volunteered his time to coach a youth flag football team, which he dearly loved. He is also a co-founder of the non-profit organization, The Unseen Faithful. Andrew enjoyed playing video games, working out, and writing music in his spare time. His mother said he would come out of the shower singing country, changing over to gospel, and ending with rap. He was planning to attend SAU and major in Financing and then go to Law School in Little Rock.
Preceding Andrew in death was his maternal grandmother, Brenda Kay Smith.
He leaves behind his parents, Damon and Michelle Smith Peebles; his two sisters, Kaden and Breanna Peebles; his grandparents, Harold A. Smith, Dr. Sam and Suzanne Peebles, Kay and Lloyd Stanley, Danny and Doris King; and a huge host of friends and other family.
A Celebration of Life Service will be held Sunday, March 26, 2023, at Nashville Arena with Michael Howard officiating. Public visitation will be Monday, March 27, 2023, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Nashville Funeral Home. A private graveside will be held later.
The family asks that in lieu of flowers memorials be made to “TUF,” The Unseen Faithful, non-profit organization supporting siblings of childhood cancer patients in which Andrew was a co-founder. Theunseenfaithful.com; Venmo: @ the unseenfaithful (Business); Paypal: firstname.lastname@example.org.
