I am lucky enough to remember not only Dr. Pearse, but also his mentor, Dr. John Straub. When I was a kid we drove 80 miles when we needed Dr. Straub. On his retirement, he recommended another good man - Dr. Pearse. I remember the days when you could call the Yuma Clinic in the morning and visit Dr. Pearse that afternoon.

Dr. Pearse was the best doctor anyone could have asked for. He treated everyone with his great bedside manner, kindness, and skill. Truly a great person.

Jane, LeeAnn, John and families: We are wishing you many blessing for peace and comfort. Jack was such a blessing in all our lives here. I will never forget when I was in labor with Travis and about 20 hours into it. Jane came over from the clinic and sat with me and had me start pushing even though I didn't have the urge to push yet. I was so tired by then. When it was finally time to deliver several hours later, Jack and a young intern were scrubbing in the next room. I could hear Dr Pearse ask the intern if he had the calf pullers ready. The young intern was from a ranch family himself and he new after this many hours they might have to pull this kid out. Travis Bronc Rogers definitely made entrance. I gave a push as Dr Pears got to the end of the table and Dr Pearse caught Travis as he came flying out.
Our thoughts are with you. Love and peace to you all.

One of the last of the Dr. Marcus Welby, MD's. His patient care shepherded my family for 20 plus years with kindness, skill and attentiveness. Prayers of gratitude for Dr. Pearce and love and prayers to all the family in a loss shared by many. This attentive and kind physician now rests in the eternal care of the Great Physician. Can imagine they'll have enough notes to compare to last eternity!

Dr. Pearse delivered me and was my doctor until I graduated from high school. Even when I was really sick, I enjoyed going to the doctor. My most memorable appointment was when my mom tried to get him to convince us that liver was good for us. He said it was like eating the oil filter on a car and he sure wouldn't eat it. Mom never made liver for us again. He was a funny, gentle, dedicated doctor.

This man delivered me, gave me inoculations and stitches. He was a great doctor, and always made me smile. I never knew him as an adult, but he left an impression on me as a child that lives with me today. I could only wish that all docs had his charm, sense of humor and bedside manner today. He will be missed. To his family: he impacted so many lives in yuma, colorado. Even to this day, people still remember him for who he was: a great doctor who took the now rare personal approach to medicine. Many people from yuma are celebrating his life with you...especially considering he brought so many us of into the world. Dr. in a billion!!!

Dr.Pearce brought both of my children into the world. I was a ver young mom and he was such a kind amazing man. My parents lived across from him and Jane, later my sis and her family. He had such an amazing sense of humor, I know he touched so many lives as he did mine.

I pray for grace and comfort for you family through this!
God Bless you and thanks for giving yourself to many of us!

Dr. Pearse was the only doctor I knew throughout childhood. He was the epitome of kindness and gentleness. What a gift to the town of Yuma to have such a warm and wonderful doctor. My sympathies to Jane and all his family...

It is no exaggeration that Dr. Pearse saved my life on June 5, 1979 when I crushed my spine.

Before then he was our family doctor and regardless of the situation, he was the kindest most gentle doctor I have known.

What a wonderful & beautiful legacy he leaves.

Our thoughts and prayers to the family. I worked with both Dr. Pearse and Jane as well being their patient. He was a great man, so calm and reassuring to families when they were afraid and knowledgeable to those who worked with him!

Jack and Jane were great neighbors and friends. He was a family doctor in the rue sense of the definition. Condolences to his family. He will be missed by the hundreds he touched in so many ways.

Dr. Pearse delivered 3 of our children. Jane was always with him in the delivery room. What a team they were! I appreciated him so much. We also took one of our sons to his house on July 4th when he got bit by a dog. He stitched him up and was so kind. We still miss having him as our
doctor. Our prayers and sympathy to Jane and family.

When my first son was born, at 10lbs 9 1/2 oz, Doc said I'm going out for steak after that one. He's half grown. When I was preg with my second child, he told all the nurses "Oh she just has big babies" during delivery Jane say's "Oh, my gosh, then looks down at me and say's Oh we think there's another one. Sure enough one 7'6 1/2 the other 6'9 1/2 What a wonderful couple, R.I.P. Dr. Pearse you brought many Blessings into the world!

Dr. Pearse put me in the hospital when I was about 9 years old with blood poisioning. That was the first time I met him. In 1969, as soon as he delivered my daughter, Amy, Jane weighed and measured her and she was as big around as she was long, so Jane said, "Well Jack, if the Green Bay Packers ever take girls to play football, Amy will be the first to go." In 1972 he delivered Jason, 1976, Sally, and 1978, Adam. When I was terrified in the middle of the night by my husbands seizure, I begged him to come to our house, and he came,at 3 a.m. In 1983 I rushed Adam in to see Dr. Pearse to remove a tick. He took the tweezers, did a little work, and walked over to me, looking at me over his glasses, and said, "Cheryl, it's a ROCK!!!!!" (The kid had fallen out of the car on his head). This wonderful man worked from sunup to sundown for our community, and for this, I loved him dearly, and Jane as well because she always stood beside him. I will miss this larger than life doctor. They don't make them like that any more!

He was an excellent doctor and just an all around good guy. I was always so grateful to him for taking such good care of my Dad over the last difficult months of his life.

Dr. Pearse and Jane were our family friend for a long long time. Jack and my Dad would have water fights during summer lawn mowings since we lived across the street from each other. Love the family so much! He delivered 2 of our 3 children and was our Doc for so long!! Have missed their presence in Yuma-town and send our thoughts and prayers to Jane, John and LeeAnn and families.

One of MANY stories was I was pregnant with my third child and I had two girls. This was in the day before ultrasounds and he and Jane were convinced I was going to have a boy! I told them there had not been a boy on my mother's side for 5 generations. He induced my labor and stood by my side with a blue tie on and Jane in blue scrubs- and lo and behold I gave birth to a healthy bouncing baby boy !! My sympathy to all his family.

Dr. Pearse was my doctor in Yuma Colorado for as long as I could remember. His compassion and bedside manner were second to none, I consider myself lucky to have been one of his patients. He will be made missed.

I knew Dr. Pearse only toward the end of his long and illustrious career in Yuma, Colorado, where he is a legend. I can claim, though, to be one of the last people he stitched up as he had to visit the ER in Yuma on a Sunday afternoon after I got my lip split open in a town team basketball game. A super nice guy, and epitome of a great smalltown doctor.
