John Robert Pierce
December 11, 1949 – April 12, 2018
John Robert Pierce passed away at his home in Midland, Texas, on April 12, 2018. He was born in Knox City, Texas, to Margaret Jean and Joe Bill Pierce on December 11, 1949. He graduated from Peacock Military School in 1968 and from The University of Texas at El Paso in 1980. While attending UTEP, his first child Morgan Leigh was born, followed by her brothers Jarrett Ryan and Kyle Evan in Midland with former wife, Deborah. As a member of the CCIM and ULI, John sold commercial real estate and ranches in both Midland and in the Hill Country area, where he lived for 15 years. He is survived by Morgan and her husband Joey Dishron of Ft. Worth, and their children Pierce and Patton; Jarrett Pierce and his wife Jessica of Houston, and their children Josie and Jane; Kyle Pierce and his wife Caitlin of Midland, and their children William and Everett. He is also survived by his sister Cindy and her husband Mark Choate and their family of Palos Verdes, California, aunt Charlotte Willson of Dallas, and numerous cousins. John will be remembered for his sharp wit and an independent streak that was a mile wide. He loved rock ‘n’ roll, the Texas Hill Country, Dobermans, Harley Davidsons, and a good wood fire. Above all else, John loved his family – especially spending time with his grandchildren. He will be missed; he will be remembered. Services are pending for a family memorial service.

My wife Joyce and I, moved to Culpeper Drive four years ago. We met John and his Doberman 'Bucko' almost immediately during one of his daily walks down the alley. I will never forget the first time we met. Bucko came bounding up to me, which given his size was startling, but he was quite friendly. We so enjoyed our visits with John and Bucko, and looked forward to seeing them when I was out in the garage polishing a car or we were working on a project. We got to know each other as neighbors, and friends. We are heartbroken to hear of John's passing.
Joyce and I send our hear felt condolences to John's family. We felt blessed to have made a friend of John. We will miss him.
