Obituary

Obituary – David Lloyd Pearson

July 20, 1943 – September 26, 2021

With grateful hearts full of treasured memories, it is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our wonderful husband, dad, and grandpa, David Lloyd Pearson. He went to be with the Lord on his 51st wedding anniversary date, surrounded and supported by his beloved family. He was a man who faithfully loved God, his children and grandchildren. He was our hero! David will be lovingly remembered by his wife Anna; his children: June, (John) Nadine, (Jeroen) and Nathan, (Crystal); his grandchildren: Aiden, Tom, Tyse, Leah, and Hein; his siblings: Pat, Valerie, Bob, Don, Steve, and many extended family and friends. Predeceased by his Mother Lorene, his father Lloyd, and sister Mildred.

David was born on July 20, 1943 in Woodstock, Ontario. Growing up on the family dairy farm, David had numerous experiences and passions: he loved the land, gardening, God’s nature, birds, and wildlife. He enjoyed curling, skiing, music, playing baseball, crib, traveling, ketchup, and studying history. He was a dedicated member of his local church. Out of his love for God and community, he volunteered his time delivering Meals on Wheels, helping with Samaritan’s Purse, and maintaining the gardens at Memorial Presbyterian Church. David worked primarily in agriculture, and also in oil, and coal related fields for a short time in the Artic and then Alberta. He gave God’s love hands and feet by helping family, friends and neighbours whenever he could.

We are grateful to the Red Deer Nursing Staff: Dr. Daniel, Dr. Hall and team, as well as to the Christian hospital chaplain, Mabel Wu. Shedding a tear, he passed peacefully after her comforting prayers. David has changed addresses, exchanging his earthly home for a heavenly one, and we look forward to seeing him again.

Celebration of life service will be held Monday, October 4, at 1:00 pm at Alliance Community Church in Sylvan Lake, officiated by Pastor Jim Rilling.

Dear Anna and family.
We were saddened to learn of Dave’s passing. He was truly a gentle man and friend. We thoroughly enjoyed the years of curling together, and his stories of Ontario, while driving to Bentley for four years.
He will be missed, but we all have good memories of him. May those memories provide some comfort to you.
