I am so deeply sorry for your loss. Peyton was an amazing man that cared so much for everyone around him. I don’t remember a single time he wasn’t laughing and smiling and never failed to get others to do the same. I know he would be proud of how much all of his friends and peers have stuck together and supported each other through these tough times. I’ll continue to think about him and Quinn in everything I do and he’ll live in our hearts forever.

Peyton was my friend throughout highschool. I cherished every moment we spent together. His loyalty, kindness, and the love he had for those around him was truly one of a kind and something I’m so grateful I got to experience. I’m so sorry that the world has lost one of the most amazing humans I’ve ever met, but I know in my heart that heaven gained a true angel.

Peyton was an amazing young man. I taught him in multiple classes and we had many great conversations about life, his plans for the future and how he was going to achieve that. He will be dearly missed.

I was one of Peyton's middle school teachers. I remember his willingness to help other, sense of humor and his contagious grin. He was such a great kid to have in class. I'm so sorry for your loss.

I’m deeply sorry for your loss. Peyton was the friendliest, kindest, and funniest person that I have ever met. I am attending UW-Milwaukee for my freshman year as a nursing major. He told me that I would be a great nurse and I knew he would be a kick ass one as well. I also have to say his hugs were the best. Although this is heartbreaking, I know Peyton is still making people smile wherever he is.

Our family still talks about the trip we took to Chicago with the ARCH Group families, eating dinner at the famous Lou Malnati’s. I believe there was some sort of a challenge about just how many pieces of Lou Malnati’s deep dish pizza one could eat; and little 12-year-old Peyton was up for that challenge. And he crushed it. (I think it was 4?!) We were amazed, and high-five’s were given by everyone. We gave him such a hard time the next morning at breakfast (did he want some leftover pizza?) and he was such a good sport. Our kids really enjoyed spending some time with him and found him hilarious. What a great weekend and what a memory.

Rick and Shannon, I’m so very sorry for your loss. I can’t even fathom what you must be going through. Peyton was such a great kid! Every time I saw him, he had a smile on his face. From the time he was born, he was ALWAYS smiling. Ricky, I’m heartbroken for you and for Shannon. No parent should have to say goodbye to their child. Remember, he’s not alone. He’s got a great group of guys up there, and they’re gonna take care of him. We love you guys!! Peyton keep looking down after your parents, family and friends. And keep smiling 🥰

The first day of kindergarten I walked into Mrs. K’s class. I had no friends. Everyone was a stranger. I remember sitting at my seat. I was partially excited and nervous, mostly nervous. Peyton was the first person to talk to me. He took my nerves away. He was so friendly. It always amazed me how he could talk to everyone so easily. He was my best friend while I was at GLW. My fondest memory was when we got in big trouble I don’t remember what we did, but I do remember the principal putting us in a timeout. I don’t know why she thought that was the best idea, but we sat in her office. Trying not to laugh the entire time. When I left GLW we never were that close ever again. I would always talk to him when I got that chance. I think we both felt that true friendship we had when we were kids that was always still there. Peyton will be missed. He won’t ever leave my mind he was a huge part in my early school years. Peyton was easily, hands down, the nicest and most fun person to be around. Everyone says that they would hear his laugh. You would. I didn’t think it was possible for Peyton to get upset. He always had a smile on his face. I hope that The Munch Family is doing alright in these hard times. Thank you for listening/reading.

I have been a neighbor to Peyton for about 17 years. I enjoyed when he would come to my house and offer me things he was selling for his football team. He was so respectful and thankful. Rick, Shannon and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Peyton was and is s wonderful young man. My prayers are with you now and always. I am so sorry for your loss and the loss in our neighborhood.
