Pierce Merrick Brower 
We lost one of our little boys this week. Pierce Merrick Brower, age 6, of McKinney, passed away Aug. 7, 2002, in Dallas. He was born June 12, 1996, in Dallas, to Tripp and Sheri (Ryman) Brower. 
Pierce was a very special child, full of happiness, love, spirit and mischief! He treasured so many things, especially “Baby Bear” and his “blankie with his favorite part.” His favorite thing to do was playing with his buddies. He was always busy, either adding to his rock collection, building Legos with Mason and Landon, trading Pokemon cards, playing soccer for the Cheetahs (lucky number 13), tee ball for the Rangers and lots of mini-hockey. Pierce was a roller blader, who swam whenever he could, loved to fish, do lemonade sales to raise money for charity (and new street hockey jerseys!) and lighting sparklers. Among his favorite activities was crabbing in the tidal pool in Maine, skipping rocks and touring NASA with Grandma and Grandpa. He loved Star, his cat, and Tucker, his dog, along with Mondano, Splashy and Goldy, his fish. Give Pierce a little Back Street Boys, Aaron Carter and a Dallas Stars game, and he was a happy boy. If you knew Pierce, you know he loved everything about being an Army guy, especially the camouflage pants part, and he was always ready to go pick flowers to give to his Mommy. 
He is loved and missed by his parents, Tripp and Sheri Brower of McKinney; brothers, Mason and Landon; grandparents, Darwin and Betty Ryman of Texas City, Texas; Uncles Jeff and Mike; Aunt Gaylene, cousin Lauren and great-grandmother Ryman; grandparents Frank and Karen Brower of Pratts Island, Maine; Uncles Darby, Hamilton, Chris and Brian; Aunts Jen and Kim; and cousins, Jennings Darby, Kendall, Grace and Hamilton. 
Pierce was preceded in death by Mimi, his grandmother, Mason Darby Brower. 
A memorial service celebrating Pierce’s life was held at 2 p.m. on Aug. 10, 2002, at Cross Point Church, with Pastor Mark Turman officiating. 
The Pierce Merrick Brower Memorial Trust is set up at Legacy Bank of Texas to benefit organ donations and academic scholarships. 
Perhaps Pierce’s most important contribution was the gift of life to two children through the donation of his organs. 
Arrangements are under the direction of Turrentine-Jackson-Morrow Funeral Directors.
