Edward "Ed" Pierson, Sr. Obituary

Edward William Pierson, Sr., 74, of Indianapolis, passed away on Tuesday, December 12, 2023, at I.U. Methodist Hospital. He was born on September 29, 1949, in Indianapolis, to the late Roscoe Ted and Evelyn Sue (Riley) Pierson. 

Ed attended Harry E. Wood High School and retired from CSX Transportation after 40 years of service. He was a member of the Teamsters #135, the Eagles Club of Beech Groove, and the S.O.L. of the American Legion Post 88 in Fountain Square. He never met a stranger and could make a new friend wherever he went.

Ed had a couple Alias like Fat Man and Fast Eddie from his softball and boxing days. In addition to softball and boxing, Ed enjoyed fishing, golf, horse racing and gambling. When his kids were growing up, he was known for coaching and taking the kids to Kings Island at the end of the season every summer. He enjoyed a good steak and baked potato, the bigger the better. Ed will be greatly missed for his larger-than-life personality and the love that he had for his family. 

Survivors include his loving wife, Pauline (Massing) Pierson; children, Eddie W. (Mindy) Pierson, Jr., Dustin J. Pierson, Ricky W. (Karri) Pierson and Evelyn “Susie” McKinney; siblings, Clarence “Buddy” (Jody) Parsley and Deanna McQuillen; grandchildren, Eddie Pierson III, Brittany Pierson, Colby Doolin, Destiny Pierson, Dominique Pierson, Dustin “Bubby” Pierson, Danica Pierson, Jerrica Pierson, Jaylin Pierson, Taylor Pierson, Hayden Pierson, Riley Pierson, Ava Pierson, Michael Caito, Shyanna Caito, Debbie McKinney and Katelyn McKinney; great-grandchildren, Elias, Archer, Zediah, Amari’onna, and Ari’Bella.  He was preceded in death by his parents and siblings, Tommy and Gary McQuillen.
