Over 2,000 people gathered on Tuesday in the mid-day heat to remember an 80 year old Army Veteran that most didn’t even personally know. The Army veteran Edward Pearson, didn’t have any immediate family, so the funeral director included an open invite in his obituary that went viral. The Florida resident had quite a turnout for his funeral.
He was a Purple Heart recipient and a career Army veteran. He also seemed to be a great man according to friends. We hope he rests in peace.
