James "Jim" Pearson

Dec. 06, 1925 - Sept. 15, 2013 Jim Pearson, 87, passed away last Sunday after a long rewarding life involving good friends, service to his church and country, interesting jobs, and a loving family. Born in Everett, this area was home for most of his life. He was a proud graduate of Everett High School, chairing what became annual reunions for obvious reasons. And, while he was a Cougar, he cheered for the Huskies when they played any other team. He also loved to cook for or fish with family and friends. Jim served his church in a variety of capacities from altar boy to vestryman and his country as a Navy Seabee in the Pacific during WWll. His work ethic was established at age seven when he arrived first to sell the morning papers on the corner of Colby and California. As an adult, Jim was a plumber before working for University Mechanical Contractors and its partners in Seattle, Prudhoe Bay and the Tri-Cities until retirement. He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Jeannette Harrison Pearson; daughters, Terri and Shelley Pearson; son and his wife, Scott and Judy Bryant Pearson; grandchildren, Jeff and Anne Pearson; and great-grandchildren, Calvin and Marina Pearson; as well as by his sisters, Mary Wheeler and June Gerken. Jim's funeral service is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 21, 2013 at Trinity Episcopal Church, 2301 Hoyt in Everett, WA.
