Ronald Jack Pierson, age 80, of 207 W. Varnum Street in Munising, died under the loving care of his family and North Wood Hospice at his home on Sunday evening, September 27, 2015. He was born on the family farm on Koski Road in AuTrain Township on April 25, 1935 to Carl and Marguerite (Helsel) Pierson. Ron grew up in AuTrain and Munising. He graduated from Wm. G.

They were charter members of the U.P. Chiefs and enjoyed spending time walking, dancing, mushroom hunting and being a wonderful marriage team together.
