It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of our son, Jacob Ryan Pirie “Scooby” of Houston Texas, on May 6, 2022, due to complications from a recent surgery. Jacob was 19 years old and enrolled at Lone Star Community College, studying Business.
He will be lovingly remembered by his dad, Robert Pirie III of Houston, his mom, Regina Anderson of Rushville Indiana, his sister, Jessica Pirie also of Rushville Indiana, his half-brother Johnathan Gray of Alabama, “honorary” brothers, Justin Port and Ben Dryden and “Fat boy” Dakota (his dog) and many other extended family members and fur babies.
Jacob is survived by his uncles, Randy Rosson, James Pirie (Frog), Michael Pirie (JoeBob), Steve and JR Anderson Whitham. His aunts, Vikki Anderson and Yolanda Anderson, grandparents Robert (Bob) and Sherri Pirie as well as numerous other relatives.
Jacob is preceded in death by his grandparents, Patsy and Joe (Pops) Rosson, his grandmother, Patricia Hill Anderson. Uncle Brent Rosson, Uncle Terry Anderson, and Aunt Tina Anderson.
Jacob had many mentors in his life that molded him into the amazing young man that he became. His WGF family, Rich, Susan, Miss Heather and Derek, David, Tom, Stephen. His Langham Creek Ace Hardware family, Chuck and Arlene, and any present and past employees that assisted him in his dedicated work lifestyle. Kim Hill for his love of guns and his sense of humor, Bremily Deaton for their level head, jokes, and calming outlook on life. Many of his football coaches and leaders for teaching him not quit. Mrs. Rocheleau for his thirst of knowledge.
Jacob had many hobbies. He loved being outdoors so hunting and fishing came naturally for him. Like all teenagers, he loved playing Xbox and would stay up many hours binge playing with his friends. He loved hanging out with his honorary brothers, Justin and Ben. Jacob was a “tinker”. He loved working with his hands, fixing things and if he did not know how, he had plenty of friends that would guide him as Jacob did the work. Jacob was a sponge. He wanted to learn everything (thank you Mrs. Rocheleau). He loved messing with his sister, Jessica. As with any sibling, they fought, laughed and cried together but Jacob supported her and was extremely proud of her accomplishments and would have done anything for her. BUT his number 1 passion was his custom pick up. He worked hard to customize it. That was his pride and joy and loved showing it off.
Jacob will be greatly missed and will always have a special place in our hearts.
