Aberdeen – Billy Alvin Pierce, 66, began his new life in Heaven on Thursday, January 13, 2022. He was born on March 29, 1955, in Monroe County to the late Felix “Woody” Pierce and Sarah Freeman Pierce.
Growing up in Monroe County in a large family, Billy attended Amory High School. From 1973 until 1977, he proudly served the United States for four years in the United States Navy.

Billy worked for many years, supporting his family and making homes beautiful again. He married the love of his life, Amelia Gail Francis Pierce, on July 23, 1984, and together they were blessed with a daughter. Billy was proud of his family, his ability to provide and he loved them dearly.
Billy’s faith and family meant the world to him. He was an active member of Wren Church of Christ and he enjoyed reading his Bible, watching Christian programs, and just being around his fellow church members. He was a fine man who always straight up with you, should you ask his opinion. Billy was grounded in his faith and he enjoyed listening to Gospel and old country music. He was funny at times yet always treated others with Christian love and kindness.
In his free time, he liked starting off his mornings with the perfect cup of coffee either at McDonalds or the Shell Station, riding around in his car, and just hanging out with his friends..
More than anything, his faith in God and his family were his world. All the memories made through the years will be cherished for generations to come.
