James Eric Pearl, 43, of St. Johnsbury passed away unexpectedly Sunday October 17th. James leaves behind his fiancé, Lisa Ruffner, two young children, Veyda and Lochlan; mother, Jacqueline Prescott and husband Joe; father, Ronald Pearl and wife Kathy; sister, Jill Pearl-Leclair and husband, Jon; siblings, Holly Taylor and husband Chris, Honi Bean-Barrett and husband Paul, Chad Bean and fiancé, Katy along with several beloved nieces and nephews.
A lively and free spirit, James took great pride in his stone work. A true master craftsman, who put his all into every project. He had a work ethic to be admired; rivaled only second to the immense love he had for his children. His infectious laugh could fill a room and will not soon be forgotten by those he loved.
James cherished the simple moments-driving his daughter Veyda to dance, taking his son Lochlan for fun in the arcade, spending summer days on the beach with both, and building a giant snowman at Nonna and Poppa’s. A man found outside the home more than in-James loved fishing, snowmobiling, and riding his Harley. When he was inside, you could find him in the kitchen cooking up an elaborate albeit late meal- a special treat for friends and family.
A celebration of life will be held at Burke Mountain Hotel & Conference Center on Sunday October 24th from 1pm to 4pm.
In lieu of flowers, please reach out to someone, give them a hug, and tell them you love them
