If you have received this news via another path please forgive the intrusion. If not, I am sure you would want to know that Pierce Evans passed away Saturday morning. I received the below email from his daughter this morning. Pierce and his wife Sally retired to St Augustine, Florida after he retired from CBS.
I sent a similar email to a few at CBS, I am sure they have a much more efficient way of distributing this news than me guessing who is still there and extrapolating email addresses. I also blind CC'd Dick O'Brien and Donn Weirick on that email. This email is blind CC'd to Chuck Dages, Ralph Green, Bill Nicholls and the Retired CBS Engineers Association.
It is with a heavy heart that I inform you of the passing of my father Anderson Pierce Evans. As you may know he had suffered a broken leg and was recovering nicely at a nursing care center. He spent a wonderful Thanksgiving at home with us and was scheduled to come home for good next week. Early Saturday morning we received a call that he had died in his sleep. It was totally unexpected and we are all in a state of shock. To his friends from CBS and those from the 103d Infantry Division I thank you for touching his life. You meant so much to him. I know you will mourn his passing.
