For many years, Billy was the principal owner of The Mitchell Company, a Tuscaloosa firm engaged primarily in providing business services and tax planning for small businesses. He mentored many business owners during his long career.

He was a member of Christ Episcopal Church. He was an Eagle Scout and served in the United States Army Reserve.

Billy was an avid golfer; he loved quail hunting, sport shooting, and bird dogs. He also loved to entertain and was always the consummate host. Billy was the eternal optimist – never failing to see the potential in every business enterprise and the goodness in every person he met.  True to the Boy Scout’s oath, he was friendly, courteous and kind.

The family suggests memorials be made to Christ Episcopal Church or to a favorite charity.*

Hamilton, AL – George Pearce, age 68, of Hamilton, Alabama, passed away Monday, October 15th, 2018 at his residence.

Memorial service, 1:00 p.m., Friday, October 19th, 2018, at the Hamilton Funeral Home Chapel in Hamilton, Alabama.

George is survived by his wife, Dianne Pearce; son, John Paul “Hawkeye” Pearce; daughter, Misty Sanderson; brother, Randy (Lisa) Pearce; grandchildren, Seth Cochran, Skylar Cochran, and Sara Cochran; nephews, Casey Pearce and Dave Pearce; and a host of other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Hoyte and Peggy Pearce.

In lieu of flowers the family ask that donations be made to the American Legion Sonny James Post 165.

Editor’s note:

George Pearce was a soft-spoken and humble man who lived very quietly in Hamilton, Alabama. He was a country song writer, musician, and a member of the Alabama Music Hall of Fame.* He received many awards for his music and songwriting. Just one song I know that he co-wrote with another Hamilton native songwriter and musician, Bud McGuire was “Red River“. It was the #4 song on Side A of “The Closer You Get”, the seventh studio album by country music band Alabama, released in 1983.** I wish I knew all the songs that he wrote or co-wrote. I will list them here if anyone wants to submit them to me at jmays@49countynews.net.

To George’s family I send my deepest and heartfelt sympathy. May God Bless and Keep you as you go through this dark time I pray that He will be with you as you adjust and deal with your loss.

From me:  George will be greatly missed by his family and friends. I have known George since we were both children in Hamilton, Alabama. I have known that George was ill for some time so I wouldn’t call him back to go through the pain he’d been suffering even if I could. But I will miss him. I’ll miss his deep, slow way of talking. I’ll miss running into him at the Post Office and grocery store. I will miss just knowing that he lived quietly only a couple of miles from me. I was proud to call him my friend. Love and respect, Judy Webb Mays
