Bill was born on May 5, 1927, in New Bloomfield, at the home of his parents Churchill and Etha Lorene (Rhodes) Pearre, who preceded him in death. He was married on November 11, 1950, at the home of Rev. Elmer Mundy in Sullivan, MO, to Wilma Jean Baysinger who preceded him in death June 10, 2004.

He was a member of Providence Baptist Church in New Bloomfield, and later became a member of Immanuel Baptist Church in Jefferson City, MO.

In his leisure time, Bill enjoyed spending time with friends and loved ones at his home in New Bloomfield. He spent many hours gardening, working on vehicles, tractors, and other projects in his home shop. He also enjoyed camping with Jean and a close-knit group of friends. Bill was always ready to offer a helping hand to friends and neighbors and was always willing to share his jokes and stories with those around him. Bill will be dearly missed by those who had the pleasure of knowing him.

I had the pleasure of meeting Bill when I worked at Summit Villa in the dining room a few years ago. Sweet gentleman! I always looked forward to our visits and listening to his stories. You could tell how proud he was of his military service. My sympathy and prayers to your family! I know he will be greatly missed by many.
