Born in Boston August 3rd, 1952, to George and Grace Pearson, David was the oldest of three children. In addition to web design, David spent over 25 years working with the Volunteer Lawyers Project, serving on their board of Directors. He was a tireless advocate for the poor and homeless and sought help for those in greater need. Cameroon and Ghana are two of the countries that benefited from David's philanthropic activities. Although he had broad interests, two of his favorite passions were basketball and jazz. If Dave had control of what you were listening to, it would undoubtedly be Miles Davis, preferably while watching a Celtics game. Another of David's interests was photography and it was not uncommon to see him carrying a camera or two taking photos of whatever struck him as beautiful or peculiar. David had an impeccable sense of style and often made casual look formal. He was a fashion model in his early 20s, and seemed more comfortable in a suit than he was in jeans. David had connections in several cities at every socio-economic level and seemed to be able to draw on these resources for information and help in the many projects he was involved in. He was generous, lived by the Golden Rule, and was especially attentive to his mother whom he cherished. Three years ago, he met his soul mate in Dr. Theresa Miller, and they shared a love that was magical, even to his last breath.
Today we remember and celebrate how David lived his life – helping whenever he could, sharing a smile, stopping to greet those who were often ignored, and bringing a sense of joy to everyone he encountered. The cherished son of Grace and George E Pearson, David leaves behind his beloved Theresa Miller of Los Angeles, his mother, Grace of Newton, his brother, Eric of Boston, and a sister, Darlene of California, as well as dozens of friends, family, "play cousins" and “brothers from another mother” who meant the world to him.
