December 8, 1937 — October 21, 2022

Cyrus Willard Pearson, age 84, departed this life for his heavenly home on October 21, 2022 at the hospital in Tribune, KS. He was surrounded by family and friends. Cyrus was born to Willard and Lois (Pinkerton) Pearson on December 8, 1937 in Phillips County, Kansas. When Cyrus was a boy, they left the farm in Kansas and went to Adams County, Colorado where he finished school. Cyrus married Peggy Jean Welsh on October 15, 1968. They celebrated 54 years of marriage right before his passing. To their union came Gloria Townsend, Larry Townsend, Stanley Townsend, and Lisa Pearson. Cy loved his wife, his children, and grand-kids, and prayed for them daily. Cy was a dedicated provider and accomplished many things over the course of his life. He served in the US Navy after high school, and worked for the US Postal Service where he retired as Postmaster. He worked for KN Energy, Wallace County. Sheriff’s Office, the Port of Corpus Christi, TX. and served in the Kansas National Guard. He received training in electrical, plumbing, and HVAC. Cy was known to be able to fix most things, but his passion was knife making. He made his first knife at the age of 8 and began making custom knives using only hand tools in the late 70’s. Cy traveled the Gun Show circuit in South Texas selling knives and honing his craft. He enjoyed giving knife classes, always hoping a ‘young buck’ would catch the bug.
