Brian Douglas Pearce, 25 of Lewistown left us on March 6, 2020. Brian was born on November 17, 1994 and spent his entire life in Lewistown. As a young child Brian loved playing in the dirt and spending time outdoors with family fishing, catching frogs, riding four wheelers, horses, and spending every chance he could in the shop. Brian spent many years involved in youth archery and loved the sport. From the time he was old enough until graduation Brian shot with the Junior Rifle Club and went on to help mentor youth when he could. Brian also belonged to the Heart of the Snowies 4-H club for 8 years showing sheep, dogs, and rabbits. In High School Brian was an active FFA member for 4 years. Brian carried on the trade and tradition of trapping and hunting with his Grandpa Leon and Uncle Pat. Brian loved spending time with his dad and brother’s driving around, spot lighting, laughing and hanging out. He also spent many hours sharing stories and talking about life with his sister, developing a deep bond of love.
He graduated from Fergus High School in May of 2013. After High School Brian went on to work various jobs throughout the community learning many skills and making countless friends. He was currently working at Bos Terra in Hobson, MT and had a passion for his job; where he felt like he was part of a team.
Brian met Cheyenne, the love of his life in 2014 and welcomed their son Ryan on July 23, 2016. Ryan was the light of Brian’s life, he loved being a dad, and was a loving and devoted father. There wasn’t anything he wouldn’t do for Ryan and Cheyenne. Every spare minute he had Brian spent working on cars with Ryan by his side, so that he could share his love of motor sports with his son.
Brian discovered a passion and talent for welding and horseshoe art. He would spend hours in the shop getting his bump n run car ready to race for the local BGM. Over the past two years Brian enjoyed his time out with his friends on a pool league.
Brian had an enormous love for his family. He was always the first to run to his nieces, nephews, and cousins with his contagious smile. Brian loved hopping on his horse or snowmobile with any of the kids to take them for a ride. Brian had a heart of gold and the biggest smile; he will be truly missed by all who knew him.
