John Pierson

It is with great sadness that we have to announce that John Pierson, 61, husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and son passed away Monday, May 23, 2022, peacefully with his family by his side. 

John was born in Cleveland,Ohio to Douglas and Susie (Childers) Pierson. He moved to Gauley Bridge,WV as a teenager and was a graduate of Gauley Bridge High School. He moved his family to Norton, Ohio, 32 years ago and that is where they call home. 

John was preceded in death by his mother, Susie; brother Mark; grandparents, Carl and Helen Childers, Ann and Frank Pile and George Famon Pierson.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Sherrie; and his sons, John Douglas (Hanna), Justin David, Famon Lewis (Sierra); the best grandchildren in the world, Peyton, Kenzie and Natalie. Also surviving  are sister, Stephanie of Gauley Bridge; brother, Daniel; and father, Douglas of Falls View. John also has a plethora of nieces and nephews along with aunts and uncles and cousins  that he thought the world of.

John loved spending time with family and friends. He was a top notch bonfire builder and enjoyed the socializing that always occurred with a good fire. He was an avid Cleveland baseball fan and Cleveland Browns fan but also a fan of his kids and grandkids in Norton sports. John also enjoyed NASCAR racing. He was a retired HVAC installer. John never met a stranger.

The family would like to send special thanks to Savannah, Lexi, Eddie and Tammy for being with the family and helping ease their burdens and sharing their memories during this difficult time. 

A celebration of John’s life will be held at a later date due to COVID showing up uninvited. Memorial donations may be made to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International of Independence, Ohio in John’s name at www2.jdrf.org

Eternal rest grant unto John, O Lord,
and let Your perpetual light shine upon him.
May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed
rest in peace. Amen.

Dear Sherrie, J.D., Justin, and Famon,

My heart breaks for each of you during this period of heartfelt mourning.
It was truly a pleasure speaking with John by telephone over the years nostalgically reliving stories of our youth when he was domiciled in Florida with his brother Mark. I swear we broke ribs from the laughter alone. The wild and crazy antics were endless. When it came to enjoying life, John ALWAYS placed the pedal to the metal..... a memorable human being who I've had the pleasure of calling FRIEND! I will cherish hearing him say "I love you, Brother!" at the end of our phone calls.


Peace be with you and yours,
