Rev. Donald “Don” Lynn Pierce, 64, of Statesville, N.C., went home to be with his Heavenly Father on Tuesday, August 25, 2020, surrounded by his family.

Don was born in Iredell County on December 5, 1955, to Phyllis H. Clarke and the late Clyde Grady Pierce. He was a graduate of Iredell County schools and on December 31, 1975, he married Jackie Deal Pierce, and together they shared 44 years of marriage until his passing.

Don enjoyed nature and old cars. He found comfort in working in his garden. He was a dedicated husband, father, and grandfather. Don instilled Godly values in his sons and grandsons. His love for his fellow man was the driving force for his unwavering faith and dedication of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

In addition to his wife Jackie and mother Phyllis, Don is also survived by two sons, Seth Pierce (Rebekah) and Brian Pierce (Megan), both of Statesville; along with five grandsons, Shawn, Bradley, Zachary, Brandon, and Luke Pierce. He is further survived by two brothers, Ronald Pierce and Grady Pierce; and four sisters, Kathy Hutto, Debbie Pierce, Joy Greenhalph, and Peggy Lindsey. His brother-in-law, Mike Deal (Jeannie), and sister-in-law, Tammy Shephard (Brodrick), also survive.

Funeral services honoring the life of Don Pierce will be conducted at 11 a.m. on Saturday, August 29, 2020, at Truevine Worship Center with Rev. Barbara Bunton and Pastor Rik Hamrick officiating.

    The last time Rick and I visited with brother Donnie and the family, before we left, I said, Brother Donnie, you know what I see? He shook his head no. I said I see Jesus in your eyes, and I did. He dropped his head and cried. Didn’t know him as well as a lot of others, but can honestly say I was blessed everytime I was in his presence. Enjoyed hearing his seed ministry. We will visit again.

  3. Love you, my friend. Always enjoyed being around you. One of my longest friendships. Miss you already, but I will see you soon, buddy.
