So sorry to hear of Pearce’s passing, he was a very nice man, I always enjoyed little chats with him over the years, when we both lived in Woody Point.

Denise and extended family,
I was so saddened to hear of your Dad’s(Pearce’s)
passing.. Pearce was my saviour when I lived in Deer Lake. He always came to my rescue when I needed help. He would come by and take a mouse out of a trap for me because I was too squeamish to do it myself.He got a laugh out of that. Pearce was a kind and gentle man and he will be dearly missed.
Thinking of you all in your loss and wishing you comfort and healing in the difficult days ahead.
With deepest sympathy,
