SFC Steven Edward Pearson (Ret.) died on August 29, 2018, at the age of 59.
Steven is preceded in death by his grandparents Charles and Edith Pearson and Floyd and Evelyn Conrad. He is survived by his wife Debbie Pearson; parents Bruce and Brenda Pearson; his sons Justin Clay and Quinn Joseph; step sons Matt Howlett (Jill), Stuart Howlett (Christy) and SFC Benjamin Howlett; grandchildren Shon Howlett, Lilly Howlett, Caroline Howlett, Carson Howlett; brothers Jay Pearson (Koren), Pete Pearson and his sister Jane Harvey (Steve).
Steven was born in Corydon, IN, raised in Marengo, IN and graduated from Marengo High School. He served his country proudly in the United States Army, retiring after 20 years. He studied business at Maria College, obtained a real estate license, and was a small business owner, distributing product for companies as large as Snyders of Hanover and most recently Pepperidge Farm, where he will be remembered and missed by all.
Steven enjoyed being outdoors and maintaining an active lifestyle. He rowed competitively in upstate New York, was an avid jogger for many years, a skier, and could be found most weekends with friends and family on his pontoon boat. His work ethic was second to none; his motto was “work hard, play harder” and he lived that motto all the way to the end. He could always make you laugh, was a spirited member of any gathering, gave you his honest opinion if you asked and never let anyone settle for less than their best.
