PEARSON, HALORAN, of Fort White, Fla., died at his home on October 29. He was born on June 19, 1952, in Hardwick, to Floyd "Dick" and Frances (Ide) Pearson. He was married to but later divorced Nancy Owens, with whom he had a daughter, Monica. Hal spent most of his adult years doing body work on cars, a skill he learned from his dad, until bad health stopped him from doing so. Hating the cold Vermont winters, he moved south shortly after high school. There he met the woman who would be the love of his life, Sonya, who took such good care of him when his lifelong battle with diabetes took a toll on his body. Hal's family will be eternally grateful to Sonya for the care she gave him throughout the years. Survivors include his wife, Sonya, of Fort White, Fla.; daughter, Monica Riley and her son, of Jacksonville, Fla.; a brother, Morris Sanders, of Salem, Ore.; a sister, Vicki Perry, of East Montpelier; aunt and uncle, Dot and Glenn Badger, of Danbury, Conn.; and cousins, nieces and nephews.
