We all loved Billy. What a great big bear. Billy always had a great smile. I talked to him shortly before we lost him and I could hear his smile over the phone.
Sure do miss you.

Billy, Mike Hess and I had wood shop together. One of them sabotaged my project, a serving tray, I had just applied the last coat of varnish and the tray was drying in the project room. The next day Billy or Mike used the band saw on my serving tray, cut in half, placed it on the top shelf in the project room. They were watching me when I went to the project room. I reached up and took hold of the tray and brought down half of it. The other half was still on the top shelf. They broke into great laughter, now that I think about it, it must have really been funny. There I was holding half of the tray and wondering what happened to it. Later in the class I found Hess's project, destroyed it and told him Billy did it. Hess took Billy's class books and three ring binder and ran them through the band saw but not all the way. He stopped at the binding. When Billy turned pages in his books and three ring binder he had to turn two pages for each one turned. As others have said, Billy was always laughing and having a good time.

(1946-2007) GEORGE (BILL) WILLIAM PEARSON, JR. 61, born in Houston, Texas and a resident of Las Vegas, Nevada for the past 8 years, passed away on Saturday, March 24, 2007. Bill is survived by his loving wife, Jane Pearson. He is survived by his sisters, Meredith Brokaw Muir, Melanie Brokaw Delph, Donna Pearson Schwab, and Brenda Pearson Strickland all of Houston, Texas; cousin, Elizabeth Doty of Conroe, Texas; stepmom Florence Brokaw and family; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and valuable friends. He was loved by all, including a large extended family and many caring and devoted friends. As we all know, Bill loved the Texas Longhorns football team and he requested that Jane put the following on his headstone: "I may not have sat at the 50 yd. line, but I was always at the game." Bill loved life and loved people. He was a large man with a gentle touch and a gentle spirit. To all who loved him remember how he made you smile and laugh and most of all, feel good about yourself. The family will have a private gathering.
