Rev. Dewayne Pierce
May 18, 1967 - November 30, 2021
Rev. Dewayne Pierce, age 54, of Middletown, went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, November 30, 2021.
Born in Odessa, TX on May 18, 1967, he was a son of the late Jimmy Earl Pierce and Margaret Ann (Thetford) Owings. Dewayne proudly served his country in the United States Army for 3 years. Following his dedicated service, he worked as an outside sales representative for Graybar for 23 years. After his time at Graybar, he became the Senior Associate Pastor of Celebration Community Church in Dillsburg, PA, where he served for 2 years. Most recently, Dewayne was the Head Pastor at Real Life Community Church in Middletown, where he served for a year and a half.
Dewayne never met a stranger. He loved the Lord first, and loved people. Dewayne had a passion for doing the Lord’s work. He loved spending time with his family: taking family vacations to the beach, attending his children’s sporting and musical events, celebrating Christmas, watching movies, attending Hershey Bears games, and going out to eat, shopping, or doing anything else as a family. Dewayne also enjoyed fishing, especially with his boys. He loved the opportunity to take his “girls” (his wife, Dee, and daughter) to see plays and shows. In his spare time, Dewayne also enjoyed reading and playing golf.
In addition to his parents, Dewayne was preceded in death by his granddaughter, Kaydence Aileen Pierce. He is survived by his loving wife of 25 years, Dee Pierce; children, Cameron Pierce (Calli), age 31, Cayden Pierce, age 22, Carissa Pierce, age 19, Cylan Pierce, age 17, and Camdon Pierce, age 14; grandchildren, Paxten and Tensley Pierce; brother, Stephen Pierce (Shanna).
