Chris loved Jesus, loved his boys, but loved, loved to coach young people. He had a very big heart and would help any that needed it. Chris could never get enough of sports which included playing, coaching and watching soccer, baseball, football, basketball, golf and; of course, hunting, especially with his three sons. In his early years he was very hardheaded and determined, As an example, when he was 11 years old, he ran a marathon, 26.2 miles in 4 hours and 12 minutes, running along side his father. He could have run faster, but his father couldn’t. He got his first High School letter in the 8th grade for soccer and from then on many letters in soccer, football, baseball and track. Chris was a Walk-On at both Hinds Community College and University of Southern MS and earned a scholarship at both. But with all that said, nothing was more important as leading and coaching his boys and other young people. He will be sorely missed by many.

Chris is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents Thomas and Celess Pierce and maternal grandmother Sally McDonald Pitman. He is survived by his ex-wife Andrea Kollar Pierce and three sons Andrew Christopher Pierce (18), Brady James Pierce (16), Dillon Thomas Pierce, (13); his parents Roy L. “Marty” and Sandra Pierce, his sister and brother-in-law Candace and Tim White, and niece and nephew, Alexis White and Brent White.

You’ll never be forgotten, as love never dies.

I was so saddened to hear about Chris. It has been many years since I last saw him. There are so many memories of him and my son, Chris. When he was here I would say something like, "Chris could you come help me?" meaning my son. They would both say, "Yes ma'am!" He was always so nice and respectful when he visited in our home. Marty and Sandra - I will hold you and the rest of the family in my heart and my prayers.
