Seldon Agustus Pierce, 1930-2015

Seldon Pierce was generous in providing information and photos for some of the posts on this blog. I was saddened to learn of his death. Below is his obituary:

Seldon Agustus Pierce

Seldon was born on July 23, 1930 and was the only surviving child of Vernal S. and Lillie Mae Finch Pierce. He was born again on February 25, 1951, one of the many children of Jehovah God, maker of the universe. Seldon was preceded in death by his parents and his favorite dog, Cody.

He worked for Chemstrand and Monsanto for 32 years and as a freelance writer for 15 years. He lived a sinner all of his life and has now, as of December 27, 2015 overcome that inebriated trait.

He leaves behind his faithful wife of 65 years, Hellon; a daughter, June Reynolds; a son, Robert E. Pierce (Sun); two granddaughters, Jennifer Pierce and Stephanie Guyette (Brian) and his loving dogs: Ginger, Troy, Penny and Ruby and grand-dog, Anubis.

Friends may visit Walnut Avenue Baptist Church for tales of Seldon’s antics and happy fellowship with each other between the hours of 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm on December 30, 2015. Funeral Service will begin at 1:30 p.m.with Pastor William (Bill) Adams officiating. Interment will follow at Bayview Memorial Park Cemetery.
