I am so sorry to learn of the passing of Mr. Pearce. He was a great person, friend to our family. I got to spend time with Louis at the 2012 rodeo,we spoke of the past and the great friendship he and my uncle Buddy Bray had in life. I was honored to work for Louis at times, and as a kid when we meet and will never forget what I learned from him and will carry this on and pass it on to my kids as well. The world needs more men like Louis and it would be even a better place, god bless to the family.

Louis, Steve, Gary & Ann,
I will always remeber him as the most charming, generous person - my early days, in Houston, were colored by his & Evelyn's Texas welcome. My children remember riding in the chuck wagon, at the rodeo, at his bequest. He moved mountains for so many causes! John and I offer our deepest sympathy for your loss - how fortunate that you had him for so long.

Over the 56 years of my career, I have met Presidents, Astronauts,political leaders as well as Fortune 500 businessmen.
Have cover Hall of Fame players, coaches, managers and owners.
Without question. Louis Pearce belongs at the top of that elite group.
Moving from New York, the rodeo was a foreign concept. But Louis and his sons gave me a behind the scenes, up close education in one of the most important events in our city.
Most important, his gift of treating common folks with the same class and dignity of his wealthier friends is a trademark of the family.
That legacy has been based down from generation to generation.
My life has been blessed by this true Texas treasure.
May he have a super ride each and every day on his horses in Heaven.

Louis was man bigger than life, who loved life and lived it to the fullest. He showed us all how to take life and wring out every last ounce it had to offer. He never wanted to give up living it untill he could go no futher. He was a great mentor, leader, cheerleader, visonary, family man, and most of all a friend to so many. He loved people and gave so much of himself to so many, but that helped fuel his desire to keep going. He was very giving and always one who put his money where his mouth was, He is truly one of the great Texas legends in so many ways, he created a big shadow and a big footprint to fill. We are blessed to have known him, and better for it. I will miss him and all the fond memories he has left me and our legacy. I know he has joined so many of other greats and picking up where they left off. He has prepared all of those who have followed his lead to be better stewards of what he has left behind.

I have very fond memories of Mr. Pearce. I and several other family members are former employees of WPI. My day, James Rogillio, who passed away 10/2/12, was the shop foreman in Corpus Christi in the early 70's.

I spent many summers working on the ranch in Rosharon to stop some soil errosion on the lakes.

He is one of those people I will never forget and the world was a better place for having been here. Rest In Peace, Dear Sir.

Thank you Mr. Pearce for everything you did for the United States, Texas, Houston and the Rodeo.

Our deepest sympathies go out to the Pearce Family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Mr. Pearce was a tremendous friend to our family and we will carry on many fond memories of him. He was one of the finest men we have had the opportunity and privilege to know. We are blessed with all the years we were able to share time together. Mr. Pearce gave me my very first horse I owned back in 1983 and he is still alive today on our ranch. It meant the world to me and I have always been proud of him.
God bless you,
Trey and Michele Fisher

Our dearest memories of LP were of man that lived by example. He gave from his heart and never did he do a deed that was self serving. He appreciated his life and loved his family beyond belief. This man cherished his friends and always wanted to leave this world having made it a better place. LP you did it all and with the grace and style of true gentleman. I love the picture. I see him and Dub saddling their horses at a cutting, laughing and sharing great joy in the fact they were together with their horses and all their friends. Game well played. He has given us all a great play book in which to follow. We hope that we can live up to his wonderful legacy. A man with vision. Thank you to his wonderful family for sharing this great man with all of us with the same style and grace that he lived by......example. God Speed our dear and loving friend. Sandy and Doc
