Richard Stanton Pearson, Sr
Birth: Mar. 18, 1928
Christian County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Feb. 21, 1978
Maricopa County
Arizona, USA

Richard Stanton Pearson was the son of William Hansford Pearson and Ella Payne. He married Margaret Irene Sullivan.

He started out his military career in the Navy Reserves in 1945. Afterwards he served until 1956 with the regular Navy. His Navy Memorial at the Nation's Capitol can be found at the Navy Log online. He was a fireman on land and an engineer by sea.

He built a house by his own hand in Kentucky for his family, only to be told after the fact that he didn't own the land he was making payments on. They were evicted.

In Phoenix, he was going to college and planned on going into business with a son-in-law. He was an inventor and was trying to have his designs patented. That never came to pass, but we see similar designs that have since been patented and think of him.

Their 9th child, Antoinette Jean Pearson, was stillborn in 1972 and subsequently cremated. Antoinette's ashes were scattered in their home state of Arizona so that, "every time the wind blew," her mother would know she was close by.

In 1977, the family suffered the loss of their eldest daughter, Patricia Agnes Childs, her unborn child, and three of their granddaughters.

Richard died the following year. He was survived by his wife and 7 of his 9 children.
