On November 2, 2013, at the tender age of 19, Peyton's young life was abruptly cut short due to a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) incident related to a genetic heart condition called Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. She was taken from us far too soon, but left an imprint on this world and a legacy that won't soon be forgotten.
Peyton was a sophomore at King's College, located in Wilkes Barre, PA, studying to be a Physician Assistant. She was a 2012 graduate of Trinity High School, located in Camp Hill, PA.
Peyton was a true adventure-seeker and absolutely loved and embraced the outdoors. She enjoyed snowboarding, rock climbing, hiking, 4-wheeling in her Jeep Wrangler, and anything that involved adventure.
Peyton never allowed her heart condition to limit her lifestyle or define who she was. She lived life in a manner that most would envy – full of energy and passion, never missing an opportunity to share a laugh or give a hug to someone who needed it. Peyton was fully dedicated and looking forward to working in the healthcare field upon completion of her PA studies at King's College.
