member of Thurston County Miniature Aircraft Association. He loved boats and being on the

water.  He also loved cars, including old cars. He could build, fix, and repair anything;

he even built the family home. He had a special place in his heart for his dogs, Sally, Oliver,

Paul is survived by his wife, Nora Andringa Pearson; son, Alex Pearson; and sister, Diane

Pearson.  He was predeceased by his parents; and brothers, Glen Pearson and Maury Pearson.
