Douglas John Pearson


Douglas John Pearson, 69 passed away on March 4, 2019 in Leland, North Carolina.

Doug Pearson was born in Queens, NY and raised in Wantagh on Long Island New York. He achieved a Bachelors Degree in Mathematics from the University of Maine. He married the love of his life, Terry Browne in Bar Harbor, ME where he and Terry returned many times over the years to enjoy their favorite vacation spot, some biking, kayaking, and many laughs with dear friends. Doug worked for IBM and ultimately created and ran his own successful company, NSS Corp, headquartered in Bedford, NH for well over two decades.

Doug was an integral part of the Bedford community. He was involved in everything from coordinating local TV programs, to community sports as well as social events throughout New Hampshire. He served on multiple state councils promoting Technology, Education and Business in NH. Everyone that met Doug experienced his warmth and love for life. He lived every day as it would be his last, which is the impression he left with those that were fortunate enough to know him.

Doug is survived by his wife, and two daughters, Kelly and Allison Pearson, his favorite common son-in-law, John Wallace, his son-in-law Justin Moyer (also his favorite), and his sister Donna Shea.

A Celebration of Doug’s life will be held in May in NH. In lieu of flowers please consider making a donation to the American Red Cross in Doug’s honor.

    You and Doug were like second parents to Mo and I growing up. Both of you were so welcoming when we moved back to NH. Thinking of you, Kelly and Allison. We will miss him greatly. Love, Steve and Emily Glover

    It is with deep sadness that I just learned of Doug's passing from our group in Wantagh. We will remember all the good times that we had at the Pearson's basement, playing cards, partying and all the things that teenagers do. Doug was always the one organizing things to do and always with a great sense of humor and clearly thought out. My sincere sympathy to Terry and his family.

    Dear Terry and family. I'm so sorry for your loss. On behalf of my brothers and sisters who knew Doug from our 'Wantagh day's, please accept our sincere condolences. We hadn't really kept in touch over the years, but have many fond memories we shared with the 'Tangle Lane families'. He was always an inspiration to me growing up, and I will keep you and your family in my prayers. God bless you.

    Terry & family, Words cannot express the shocked and sinking feeling I had when I read a note from Joanne Casey about Doug. Please accept this as my most heartfelt condolences. Soon after processing the news I was overcome by countless flashbacks of growing up on Tangle Lane from grade school through high school - all great memories. I'm glad we got the chance to reconnect last year, and while we aged I realized that Doug hadn't changed much from our early years. I'm very sorry. May God bless you and help you in your time of grief.
