Donald L. Pearson, 68 a resident of Easton, passed away Sunday, January 10, 2021 at St. Peter’s Hospital after a long battle with heart disease. He was born on January 22, 1952 in Cambridge, NY, to the late Per and Phyllis (Snell) Pearson. Donald graduated from Greenwich High School in 1970, where he enjoyed playing football. He met a cheerleader at a dance from the opposing rival Schuylerville, Arlene Lyon. The football player and cheerleader would end up having two boys Donald S. and James and were happily married for the past 48 years. He loved his children and would do anything for them. After graduating high school, Donald went on to have a successful 20-year career in the United States Navy. After retirement, he worked as a mail handler for the Glens Falls Post Office.
