BLET extends condolences to National President Pierce
INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, October 26 — The BLET National Division extends deepest condolences to National President Dennis R. Pierce and family on the passing of his father.
B. Maurice Pierce, 96, was a passionate gospel preacher for over 40 years and a veteran of World War II in the Army Air Corps. He passed away October 20, 2017.
Upon becoming BLET National President in July of 2010, President Pierce’s first message to the membership was dedicated to his father. President Pierce wrote in part: “He has always been the genuine article, serving God, Country and his fellow man his entire life. And, like the vast majority of his peers, my father toiled in relative anonymity, except for those whose lives were shaped by him. From his example, I came to understand that service to others is not an idea unique to the Greatest Generation, it is a lifestyle that is the cornerstone of any successful society.” A link to the full message is available at:
Visitation with family will be held on Friday, October 27, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Lincoln Memorial Funeral Home (6800 S. 14th St., Lincoln, NE 68512, (402) 423-1515). Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m., on Saturday, October 28, at Lincoln Church of Christ, 56th & Vine. Memorials can be made to the Lincoln Church of Christ Kitchen Fund or Nebraska Youth Camp Fishing Dock Fund.
