David Christopher Pearce – Wake Forest Obituary

David Christopher Pearce

Jun 16, 1970 – Jan 23, 2017

David Christopher Pearce, 46 of Youngsville passed away peacefully on Monday January 23, 2017. David was born in Raleigh on June 16th, 1970 to his beloved parents, Michael and Linda Pearce. He graduated from Broughton High School in 1988 where his friends lovingly knew him as “Droop”. While at Broughton, David played football but more importantly met his future wife Paige Barefoot Pearce. What began as a friendship in Spanish class grew into a 22 year marriage to his best friend. David graduated from North Carolina State University in 1992 with a political science degree. He shared his family’s passion for the electric motor business and was President and Owner of East Coast Electrical Equipment Company. David took great pride in growing a successful business but without a doubt his greatest accomplishment was his two children Coleman and Brooke. He loved spending time with his children and watching them grow into amazing young adults. Many of David’s most treasured moments were spending time with his family at his farm, fishing, riding four wheelers, and hunting. While a courageous twenty year battle with Multiple Sclerosis provided him with many physical challenges, he never lost his passion for encouraging others to reach their fullest potential.

Funeral Service Thursday, January 26 at 2:00 Saint Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Raleigh with a graveside service to follow at Pine Forest Memorial Garden Wake Forest.

David is survived by his wife, Paige Barefoot Pearce; children, Coleman and Brooke Pearce; his parents, Michael and Linda Pearce; father and mother in law, Robert and Paula Barefoot; sister-in-law, Natalie Comer and brother-in-law, Brad Comer.
