Jack Pierce, 70 - Marietta
Jack Pierce, 70, went home to be with his Lord on Saturday, July 14, 2012, at his home.
Born in Greenville County, he was the son of the late B.H. and Florida Cox Pierce. Since the age of 16, Jack loved flying in both the private and corporate world. Other interests included building, history, travel, good stories, Cajun culture and horses. Jack's various interests became a major inspiration to his son's and grand children's lives.
