Archie A. Pearson died peacefully on Aug. 17, 2011 at Tryon Estates, Columbus.
After serving three years as a special agent in the FBI and 24 years as an executive with the Ford Motor Company, he and his wife, M. Marie, moved to Tryon in 1970.
For more than 40 years, they have been members of the First Baptist Church of Tryon and during that time Archie served in numerous capacities there. Before it was incorporated into the Tryon water system, he was actively involved in the operation of Mountain Water (a system which provided water to about 25 homes).
One of his lifelong hobbies was woodworking, especially making furniture for his home and loved ones.
In 2001, he and his wife moved from their home in Tryon to Tryon Estates.
He is survived by his wife of 66 years; their son, Michael, and daughter-in-law, Julie, of Wayne, Pa., and their granddaughter, Catherine, of Washington, D.C.
A memorial service will be held at Tryon Estates in Columbus on Saturday, Oct. 8 at 11 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, gifts may be given in his memory to either the First Baptist Church of Tryon, 125 Pacolet St., Tryon, N.C. 28782, or Hospice of the Carolina Foothills, 130 Forest Glen Drive, Columbus, N.C. 28722.
