LC was born November 17, 1930, to George “Lum” Columbus and Vesta Lee Pierce in Twitty, TX. He was raised in Forestburg, Montague County, Texas, with his brothers and sister until he was 14, when the family moved to Pantex Village.   LC was drafted into the Army at the age of 20 and served proudly until 1956. He met a cute young woman, Jodan Pike from Shamrock, when he was 18 and courted her during the next few years; they were married June 6, 1953.  They raised one son and were happily married for 57 years.
LC is survived by his son Jeremy Pierce and wife, Misty, and his sister, Mary Frances Waggoner,  of Amarillo; his brother,  Arthur LeRoy Pierce and wife Sue of Kennewick, WA; four granddaughters, Destiny Thompson and husband Tommy “T.J.” of Amarillo, Hope Aguilera and husband Alex of Arlington, TX, Penelope Megan Ellis and husband David of San Antonio, TX, and Kara Anderson and husband Anthony of Canyon, TX; six great-grandchildren, Emily, Madison & Tommy Thompson of Amarillo and Alex, Amilia & Andrew Aguilera of Arlington, as well as many nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his wife, Jodan Pierce, four infant sons: Colin Miles, Tommy Thane, Ricky Dee and Randy Lee, and his older brother James Columbus “J.C.” Pierce.
LC worked with his hands; he learned to manufacture neon signs and worked for Amarillo Ice Display Company, Panhandle Incorporated Sign Co. & had his own sign company in Childress.  He was a sheet metal worker for many years and was a member in good standing with the Metal Trades Union until he retired from Pantex. LC enjoyed a variety of hobbies that ranged from bee-keeping to stock market investments. He raised nutria, helped his brother-in-law build a house and ran a small farm in Wellington. He had fun being silly with his granddaughters, shared an interest in genealogy with his brother, LeRoy, and enjoyed spending time with his sister Mary and his great-grandkids. He was a long-standing member of Central Church of Christ.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be made to Gideon International, P.O. Box 140800, Nashville, TN, 37214.
