Overpeck was born in 1925 in Omaha NB.  He was the youngest of his two siblings,and shortly after his birth, the family relocated to Long Beach CA.  He  graduated from University High School in 1943 then served as a cadet in the Army Air Corps during WWII.  After the war, he attended UCLA then USC, graduating in architecture in 1952.  Overpeck interned with Alfred Truesdell Gilman in 1948. In his last year at USC in 1952, Overpeck married Margie Stuebing, the daughter of Hollywood Ford dealer Albert Stuebing.  After USC, Overpeck worked in the architecture division of Hughes Aircraft for less than a year. He left Hughes for a job with A. Quincy Jones and Frederick E. Emmons.  Once he left Jones and Emmons, Overpeck opened his own firm in 1955.  In 1959, he partnered with the architect Robert W. Kite to form Kite & Overpeck, a partnership that lasted until 1967. He had his own firm after that.  He married Margie, and their children were Destie and Peter.  Research by Luke Leuschner.
