Johnie Pearson, Jr., passed away on January 25, 2019 in Chandler, Arizona.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Johnie Pearson, Jr. on January 25, 2019. He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Melvelean. He was the generous, proud father of sons Kipard (deceased 2007) and Jeffrey.
Johnie was born in West, Mississippi to Annie Loid Gilliam and Johnie Pearson, Sr. He served honorably in the United States Air Force. Upon returning to civilian life in Michigan, he sought a career in law enforcement and found it at the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office. He retired as a Lieutenant in 1999. He was an avid reader and especially enjoyed books about all branches of the military and the stories of those who served in battle.
We would like to thank Zai Pelante and her staff at Better Life Assisted Living in Chandler, AZ for their care and support.
