Grover Pearson (Teacher)

Grover Pearson FORT WORTH--Grover "Slim" Pearson met his Lord on Sunday, July 30, 2017. A loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, friend to all and an outstanding member of the Greatest Generation.

FUNERAL: Family and friends will gather at Greenwood Chapel to celebrate a life well-lived at 2:30 p.m. Friday, Aug.4, for family visitation preceding the memorial service at 3:30 p.m. Born in Big Hill, Texas, on Jan. 2, 1925, Grover grew up on his family's farm. In 1942, he joined the Navy and was a highly decorated serviceman and served as a reconnaissance airman based on the flagship USS San Francisco, flying courageous missions over Okinawa and Iwo Jima. Grover graduated from the University of North Texas following the war. He met the love of his life, Pollye Ruth West, and they were married on Nov. 3, 1950, at Polytechnic Baptist Church in Fort Worth. He had 51 years of faithful husbanding, the raising of two children and being "Gaddy" to his grand and great-grandchildren followed. Coaching and teaching were Coach Pearson's passions. Stints in Nocona and McKinney preceded his time as coach and teacher at Carter-Riverside High School. He described this period as the best years of his life. A teacher with high expectations, a coach that instilled discipline and a principal with principles, he is still loved, respected, possibly feared by his former students and remembered by all. Following his retirement, he was a licensed real estate appraiser for 25 years. An ordained deacon at Riverside Baptist Church, a member of the Lions Club, a Mason, director of his Sunday School class for 20-plus years, Grover was an honorable man. He commanded attention when he entered any room, even if it required being the loudest one present. The family expresses its gratitude to the staffs at Brookdale Assisted Living Center and Providence Hospice for the care they so lovingly provided Grover. A final testament: "What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?" Grover was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Pollye Ruth.

SURVIVORS: Daughters, Karen Compton (Jim) and Amy Gotcher (Pat); grandchildren, Ellen (Charles), Kimberley, West (Leanne), and Amy Paige; great-grandchildren, Emmalee, James Carter, Olivia Mae, and Baby Boy Gotcher; a sister, Nell Pearson; and many cherished family and friends.

Allen, also of FW. Bill's work with Signal Oil & Gas took them to California in 1959 where they raised 3 children in Pasadena and Newport Beach. Gina modeled, acted in TV commercials and on stage at The Pasadena Playhouse. They had a rich life together enjoying the beach, the arts, entertaining friends, taking their boat to Catalina Island, and skiing and hiking in Mammoth Lakes, Calif. In 1987, Gina graduated Phi Beta Kappa from UCI with a BA in Bilingual Education. In 1992, they returned to Fort Worth where they built a homestead on 80 acres of family land and were active in the FW Opera. Gina LOVED sports, especially TCU football! In 2013, the couple moved to The Stayton. They were married 62 years when Bill died in February 2017. Gina loved her life there and made many meaningful new friendships.

SURVIVORS: Gina is survived by their children Amy Allen of Fort Worth, Cristala Allen of Palm Springs, Calif., Will Allen of Santa Monica, Calif., and cousins, nieces and nephews across the country.

SPECIAL THANKS to the wonderful staff at The Stayton for all their loving care.
