Randle Glenn Pierce, 74, of Wallace left this earthly life for his eternal rest on Wednesday, June 27, 2018 surrounded by his loving family.
He was born on January 21, 1944 in Pender County; the son of the late Ross and Vada Batchelor Pierce. He was also predeceased by his granddaughter, Jenny Mitchell; his brother, Alvin Pierce; and sisters, Stella Evans, Shelby Sholar and Helen Sloan.
He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Surviving is his best friend and wife of 57 years, Nancy Sholar Pierce of the home; three daughters, Sharon Mitchell and husband, David, Sherry Henderson and husband, Danny and Pamela Cavenaugh and Jerry Padgett; grandchildren, Audrey Barnhill and husband, Jake, Jessie Lee and Baillie Henderson Buckley and husband, Michael; great grandchildren, Kinley Barnhill and Kolton Barnhill; brother, Jolly Pierce and wife, Amy; sister, Kathleen Hanchey and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family and friends.
Randle was a devoted husband and loving father, grandfather and brother. He found great joy in the simplest of things, but his greatest joy was family. Being a good Daddy and great provider, Randle was loved and adored by his wife, his girls and grandchildren. He was a very hard worker who would work from sun up to sun down. Randle began his working ethics in the log woods as a 14-year-old teenager. His hard work lead him to a career at Fluor Daniels where he worked for 23 years as one of the best crane operators around. During this career, Randle and Nancy spent 4 years in Venezuela, South America as he worked as a crane inspector. After retiring from Fluor Daniels and because of his love for hard work, Randle opened his own septic tank business and worked as long as his health permitted. Randle’s favorite pastime was spending time with his family and gardening. He always had a big garden with rows that were longer than most peoples. With a great personality and sense of humor, Randle was loved and respected by many. He will surely be missed but treasured memories will forever live in the hearts of those who knew Randle Pierce.
Funeral service will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, June 30, 2018 at Quinn-McGowen Funeral Home Wallace Chapel with the Reverend Shane Kennedy officiating.
The family will receive friends from 10:00 to 11:00 am, one-hour prior the service on Saturday at the funeral home and other times at Randle and Nancy’s home.

Nancy, Sharon, Sherry and Pam and families, you all have my deepest sympathy in this time of loss. Randle was the epitome of a southern gentleman. They say a true person's character reflects in how they made you feel--Randle always made me feel welcome--even after more than a few years had passed since I'd seen him. His infectious smile, teasing manner and love for life, love for his family will not be forgotten. May you find peace and comfort in your memories of this larger-than-life man. I'm winging thoughts and prayers your way and wishing I'd made the time to take him up on his offer to grill me some steaks. <3

Danny and family,
I am sorry for the lost of your love one. I hope you find strength and comfort in God.
We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present wit the LORD. II Corinthians 5:8
