Eric "Old Man" Pearson

July 30, 1953January 11, 2020

Eric Pearson or as many referred to him as "Old Man", 66 of Lenexa, KS, passed away on January 11, 2020. A celebration of his "crazy" life will be held at a later date. Eric was born on July 30, 1953 in Hinsdale, IL. He married Cindy Kinder, on January 14, 1977 and had been married for 43 years. He was an O.G. Teamster Truck Driver for Roadway Express for over 40 years with over four million locally driven miles. He loved to fish, collect lanterns, collect and part out John Deere tractors, build factory original Model A's and 1940's Harley's. After retirement his favorite thing to do was spend time with his best friend Keith and the rest of his buddy's at Keith's locally owned car shop, Apex Auto Werks. He is survived by his wife Cindy, son Keith, and younger brother Scott. Old man, we love you and will miss your company, sarcasm, and quirky sense of humor. Contributions may be made to the S.P.C.A. on behalf of his kitties, Beamer and Shelby or to Children's Mercy Hospital in remembrance of Eric Pearson II.

Cindy, Keith and family, so very sorry to hear of Eric's sudden passing. Even though we did not know him well he was a great neighbor, Mr. "John Deere". You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Eric was a great friend for the 38 years that I knew him. We worked together at Roadway Express and had a lot of great memories, some of which Roadway Express management wasn’t to happy about. Those were the days. I will dearly miss Eric and want to express my deepest condolences to his family.
