In Memory of Curtis Pearsey 

NOVEMBER 5, 1924 – SEPTEMBER 13, 2020


Our Regional Director for Bakersfield, Les Pearsey, lost his hero last month.  His Dad, Curtis Pearsey, went to be with the Lord, and as Les said, it was a true “celebration” because he knows his Dad is with Jesus.  Les has often talked about how his Dad overcame so much and determined he would raise his family in Jesus, no matter what.  Les is a fruit of his Dad’s commitment to Christ and we, too, who have been blessed by Les are beneficiaries of Curtis Pearsey’s life.  If you’d like to send Les your condolences or an encouraging message, you can add a Comment below.

One of the Bakersfield Influencers who attended the funeral said that this man leaves behind an amazing legacy.  He took notes of some of the attributes said about Les’ Dad at his funeral.

  • What an incredible legacy Curtis has left. His story is inspiring…a man who stayed faithful and made a decision that “As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.” I am honored to be a part of the ripple effect of his legacy to Les Pearsey and many others here in Bakersfield. Praise Jesus for Curtis! And I bet he is enjoying grace unimaginable in the Presence of Jesus right now!

  • Les,
    I am sorry I did not see this opportunity sooner. I appreciate your sharing on your father and his passing. My prayers are with you and the family during this time of celebration but also loss of time with a great man.
    I cherish your brothership and your love for me and the Lord. I know your father had to be a large part of the foundation you have in Christ. I thank the Lord for bringing us together.
