Jeffery Michael Pearson


On Thursday, March 4, 2021, Jeffery Michael Pearson, loving husband and cherished father passed away surrounded by his family.

Jeff was born on August 20, 1944 in Tucson, Arizona to Ilona Belecz and Alec Townley. Upon graduating from Forest Grove High School in Oregon, Jeff
began his career in the baking industry. On February 11, 1967 he married his love, Tammy Maffit. The couple raised 3 children all the while relocating throughout the United States as Jeff climbed the corporate ladder.

Nothing was more important to Jeff than his family and friends. More than anything he enjoyed attending all of his kids and grandkids events. He loved corn hole, golfing, fishing, spoiling his kids, animals, and a good cigar. Jeff was also known to be an ornery grill master and loved to cheat at cards.

Jeff was preceded in death by his father Alec, stepmother Deana, mother Roz, and his brother, Phil. He is survived by his wife Tammy, 3 children, Jennifer, James (Rebekah), and Mitch (Angela), 3 grandchildren, Hazel, Morgan, Berend, 8 siblings, a sweet dog named Chloe, and a cat named Turd.

At Jeff’s request there will be no service. To honor him, donations can be made to Community Paws of Verrado, AZ or South Pacific Humane Society in Long Beach, WA.
