David A. Pearson, 67, of Plymouth, MA died on August 27, 2021 in California after a motorcycle accident.
David was born in Brockton, MA on June 15, 1954. Son of the late Theodore A. Pearson, Sr. and Mary C. (Dugan) Pearson of Rockland, MA. He was a graduate of Rockland High School, Class of 1972.

David was a loyal employee of Reliance Pharmaceutical (formerly Sanofi-Genzyme) of Cambridge and previously worked as a crane operator for many years at Zichelli Construction of Leominster, MA.
“Big Dave” was a loving son, a crazy fun uncle and a steadfast brother and friend. A life-long love of music was solidified when he became a member of the Pembroke Imperial Drum and Bugle Corp. Cooking with love for his large family and Men’s Clubs (Alden Club, Cold Spring, and Eagles) was a favorite activity. He also enjoyed boating, golf, motorcycle riding and a good cigar. There will forever be a hole in our hearts without “Big Dave.”
