A life full of excitement and a whole list of “done its,” Bob Pierce had done it. From singing on the Louisiana Hayride to working on Navy fighter planes to serving the public, Bob Pierce will be missed but not forgotten.

A service to celebrate Bob’s life will be at 10 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 4, 2012, at Mount Carmel Baptist Church with the Rev. Bennie Portwood officiating under direction of Burks Walker Tippit Funeral Directors. He will be laid to rest in Walnut Grove Cemetery.
Honorary pallbearers are Dan Seelbach and officers and staff of the Tyler Police Department and the Henderson Police Department.
