Upon leaving the Air Force, he moved to Euless, Texas where he met his wife, Vickie
Warden Pierce. The two were married for 38 years, and had two children. He was a devoted and loving Husband, Dad, Uncle, and "Poobah." His family most remembers his sense of humor, his tall tales, and the many lessons he taught about life and how to be handy.

He opened Double "L" Repairs, and was known as "Mr. Fix-it" for 12 years by all the little old ladies in town. In the last 15 years, he was able to realize his dream of being a gunsmith and craftsman, by opening G. Pierce Gunsmithing and Sales.

He was proceeded in death by his mother and father, Betty and Rocky Pierce; his brother, Roy Pierce; father-in-law, Doug Warden; and brother-in-law, Danny Warden.
