It is with great sadness the family of Andrew Pearce announces his passing on Saturday, July 27th, 2019 at the age of 92.
Andrew was born on January 23rd, 1927 in Tawatinaw, Alberta and was the youngest of eight children. He believed in hard work, had an eye for detail, and could fix anything. Andrew was adamant about giving back to his community and was instrumental in building the Pine Valley Hall and bringing electricity to the area. His farming career spanned throughout decades that saw changes from threshing machines to modern day combines. After 30 years of marriage, he and his wife Olga, began travelling and were fortunate to have visited many countries making new friends along the way. Even as he grew older he continued to be active, despite his failing health.
He will forever be remembered by his four children, Debbie McCoy (Ray), Joanne Schmidt (Ken), Donnie Pearce (Pam), and Angie Tymko (Michael); by his 16 grandchildren, David McCoy (Jenn), Trent McCoy (Lorraine), Meagan McCoy-McLevin (Rob), Lesley McCoy (Arden), Mark Schmidt (Caitlyn), Allison Wires (John), Heather Meyer (Jeff), Cathy Schmidt (Aaron), Crystal Wheeler (Corey), Courtney Golinowski (Brian), Caylee Spearin (Ryan), Chelsea Pearce (John), Jill Tymko (Mike), Pearce Tymko (Erika), Katie Tymko, and Jackson Tymko; and 16 great grandchildren, Madelyn, Ward, Thayne, Julia, Emmie, Hank, Addyson, Olivia, Sarah, Steven, James, Molly, Hudson, Reed, Garrett, and Bradley; sister-in-laws, Lil Pearce, Kay Malmas, Olga Warwaryk, Stella Weber, Lennie Fortier and numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his loving wife of 48 years Olga in 2000, son-in-law Greg McCoy in 1997, parents Albert and Tillie, siblings, Lesley, Emily, Stewart, Elsie, Marjorie, Roland, and Edward.
A special thank-you to Dr. DaCunha and the staff at the Westlock Healthcare Centre for their kind and compassionate care.
