Paul Richard Pearcey (aka Dick Pearcey) was born January 17, 1937, in Colton, Oregon, to the late George and Hattie Pearcey. He was one of 11 kids (#10). He was the last of his siblings to go Home to meet Jesus and be reunited with his family.
Paul has lived in Crescent City most of his life and is known and loved by many. He co-owned and operated Del Norte Taxi for over 20 years, driving countless hours and people all over Crescent City and beyond. He used it as a vessel to witness the Word of God and led many through the sinner’s prayer.
Many knew him as, “the man who passes out CD’s” or “the CD man”, as he passed out thousands of CD’s he made, many that had his own gospel music he had written and recorded. As a musically inclined family, several of his children and grandchildren are also featured on a few. He enjoyed sharing his love of music with his family and all who’d listen. He turned his days of playing music in the bars (playing with people like Tex Ritter, Lefty Frizzell, Little Jimmy Dickens, Johnny Bond, The Collins Kids, Joe, and Rose Lee Maphis, and even working a concert with Johnny Cash) into a way to witness to people about the love of Jesus Christ; that and his many children and grandchildren were his passion.
Paul loved his family wholeheartedly and his main desire was to see all his children and grandchildren in Heaven one day. His family will miss him and the stories he shared about his lifetime, but they take joy in knowing they will see him again one day.
Paul is survived by his children Ron, Tonya, Richard, Sheldon, Joe, Tammy, Jason, Jeff, Amanda, Justin, Paul, Hannah, and his many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
He is preceded in death by his parents; his 10 siblings, Robert, Florence, Pearl, Myrtle, George, Ralph, Betty, Raymond, David, and James; and daughter Leilona.
Memorial services will be held at Cornerstone Assembly of God Church on Saturday, March 26, 2022, at 2:00 pm.
Arrangements are under the direction of Wier’s Mortuary Chapel.
