Norman Lee "Pete" Pierson

Norman ('Pete') Lee

Pete passed away on Saturday, May 11, 2013 with his daughter, Cairin and son, Michael at his side.
He was preceded in death by his loving wife of 29 years, Anna May.
He is survived by children, Michael (Chad), and Cairin (Brandon) [mother, Anna May]; Daniel (Jenny), April (Art), Eugene (Dawn),
Jacque (Darin) [mother, June]; sisters, Rosie, Verna, Sophia, and Reva; brother, Bart; and many nieces, nephews and grandchildren.
Born in Kendallville, IN, Pete had many adventures in life: he was raised as a farmer during the great depression, served in the Army in post-WWII Germany and raced rally cars. In 1957 he moved to Washington, where he operated gas stations and became a handy man. In the 1980's he worked for his father-in-law's landscaping business and then retired. In retirement, he enjoyed having a small farm raising pigs, cows, and chickens; camping; and repairing lawn mowers. After his beloved Anna May's passing, his health declined – and he started looking forward to the day he'd be in Heaven with her, together again.
Dad, we will miss you and you are forever loved.
A ceremony in Pete's honor will be held at Tahoma National Cemetery on Friday, May 24 at 11:00 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks remembrances be made to the or Senior Services of Snohomish County.
