Rosary will be recited at 7 p.m. Sunday, May 9, in Adams Funeral Home Chapel in Buffalo.

He died May 6, 2004, at Johnson County Health Care Center.

Born April 9, 1940, in Buffalo, he was the son of Charles and Jennie Pierson; was raised and educated there; and graduated from Johnson County High School in 1958.

He joined the U.S. Army in 1959 and received an honorable discharge in 1962.

On Sept. 16, 1961, he married Janet Curutchet in Buffalo.

They made their home in Oklahoma until 1962, when they moved to the family ranch in Mayoworth. In 1990, he went to work for Eitel Trucking; ill health forced him to retire in the fall of 2003.

He was a member of the Catholic Church, Soil Conservation Service Board in Buffalo for two terms, and Powder River Soil Conservation Board in Kaycee. His interests included hunting, fishing, and spending time with his family.

He was an avid Pony Express Race competitor and sports fan and tried to attend as many sporting events as possible, especially ones involving his children and grandchildren.

Survivors include his wife of 42 years of Kaycee; two daughters, Tina Bear and her husband of Worland and Toni Pierson of Kaycee; two sons and their wives, Thomas Pierson of Casper and Toby Pierson of Kaycee; two sisters, Marilyn Novotny and her husband of Buffalo and Jane Williamson of Sunnyvale, Calif.; six grandchildren; 12 nieces and nephews; and father- and mother-in-law.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

Memorials may be made to the ALS Foundation or Suzie Bowling Lawrence Hospice, in care of Adams Funeral Home, 351 N. Adams Ave., Buffalo, WY 82834.

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps...

  1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

  2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

  3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

  4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

  5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at, or call Editor Jason Adrians at 266-0545 or Content Director David Mayberry at 266-0633. This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

  6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

  7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

  8. Your comment is in really poor taste.
