May 19, 1956 ~ September 17, 2008
John Henry Pearson passed on to heaven on Wednesday, September 17, 2008. John was born May 19, 1956 in Belleville, Michigan where he grew up and met his wife, Soledad "Lolly" Pearson at Belleville High School. Shortly after marrying and having their first two children Johnny and Tammy, John and Lolly moved their family to Lawndale, California where John and Lolly had the last two of their four children Christopher and James. John's first love was his family and the outdoors was his second. John's favorite pastimes were fishing, hunting and camping. His love for the outdoors was demonstrated as a fisherman, a passion he passed on to his children. John was a man of few words yet he found ways to express his loving spirit through art. John's artistic talent inspired him to create beautiful works of art out of leather, wood and metal, as a hobby. John also had a brilliant and vibrant mind, his calm demeanor and his analytical approach to solving problems served him well as a master mechanic, and in every venture or project he took part in.
John is survived by his wife Soledad "Lolly" Pearson, and his four children. Son: John D. Pearson, Daughter: Tammy Parada, Son: Christopher Pearson and Son: James Pearson. Also by his Grandchildren: Issac Parada and Sierra Pearson. In addition John is survived by his Sister: Miriam Knofski of Kingsley, Michigan, and Brother: Bill Pearson of Romulus, Michigan.
