With heartbreaking sadness, the family announces the sudden passing of A.J. Pearson on Wednesday, December 28, 2022, at St. Joseph’s Hospice in Sarnia, Ontario
Survived by his loving wife Carol Adams and by the loves of his life, his children, Dalton, Zavior, and Brooke, all of Forest, Ontario.
Grieving are his parents, Dennis and Melinda Pearson, of Forest, Ontario, and his sister April (John) Breadmore of Fort McMurray, Alberta, his brother in law Martin (Hayley May) Adams of Potters Bar, Herts, U.K., his sister in law Jackie (Ed Tickner) of Letchworth, Herts, U.K. He was the proud uncle of two nieces and five nephews.
A.J. is survived by the extended Pearson and Hall families.
Predeceased by his sister Andrea Mantha (late of Kitchener and Sturgeon Falls, Ontario), and Carol’s parents, George and June Adams of Potters Bar, Herts, U.K.
In his youth, A.J. was a high school wrestler, a golfer, and migrated to rugby and baseball. For a number of years, he supported the Forest Optimist Club by organizing baseball tournaments.
A.J.’s personality was larger than life and he enjoyed hosting guests, friends, and neighbours in his yard, visiting on the streets of Forest.
He lived life on his own terms, but it was his children who gave his life full meaning. They are his legacy.
