Kenneth Ray Pearson

June 15, 1973 — April 25, 2022


Kenneth Ray Pearson, age 48, passed peacefully in his sleep at his home in Lafayette, on Saturday, April 23, 2022. He was born in Clinton, Indiana on June 15, 1973 and grew up in Rockville with his parents, Jack and Jonnie Lou Overpeck.

At Rockville High School, Kenny enjoyed baseball and all things Star Wars but during those years, football was his life. He built friendships and life skills on the field that helped shape his future. He graduated in 1991 and went to work at Heritage Products. He was a self taught control engineer and moved to Ohio to help during the start-up years at OTC Daihen there, then moved back home to Indiana in 2006 and worked for Masterguard. True to his Parke County roots, Kenny enjoyed hunting (and eating) morel mushrooms and shared that with his kids. He had a gift when it came to playing with his grandchildren and we will forever hold those memories close to our hearts.

Kenny is survived by ex-wife and friend, Suzi Pearson; kids, Trent Brock, Tayler (Colton) Evans, Karlie (Cory) Teeter, Payton Pearson, and Maitlin Pearson; honorary son, Garrett Blankenbeckler; grandchildren, Micah, Ellie, Paige, Case, and Gavin; his Black Lab best friend, Abbey; and his favorite dad joke, "Hi, Hungry. I'm Dad!"

He is preceded in death by his parents; grandmother, Marjorie Day; and great grandparents, Kenneth and Bertie Hickman.

An open house style wake will be held for family and friends on Thursday, May 5, from 4-6pm at Sanders Priebe Funeral Home in Crawfordsville.
