Jack McClelland Pearsall, 16, of East Falmouth passed away tragically at Massachusetts General Hospital on July 4 due to injuries he sustained after being hit by a drunk driver after leaving the Mashpee fireworks display.
In his too-short life, Jack was able to take on many roles and be many things, more than the average teenage boy or even most grown men. Of course, he was a soccer aficionado, player, teammate, coach, and referee and touched many lives through his enthusiasm for the sport that everyone loved watching him so passionately and fearlessly play since he was four. He was also a farmer, a fisherman, a landscaper, a salesman, a comedian, a mechanic, a carpenter, a sailor, an engineer, a lumberjack, a fighter, and the list goes on. Above all, "Rabbit" was a twin brother, a little brother, a son, a cousin, a nephew, a grandson, a soon-to-be-brother-in-law, and a friend who will always be missed and thought of fondly for his incredible sense of humor, big heart, "that" dimpled smile and his ability to make anyone smile and laugh, and his willingness to live life courageously and without any fear. His life ended just as bravely.
Jack is now with his Pop and Papa Ted and many other amazing family and friends up in Heaven. But here he sadly leaves behind his parents, Kelly and Alvah Pearsall; oldest brother, Alvah, Jr.; older sister, Samantha; twin brother, Charlie; soon-to-be-brother-in-law, Mike Mueller; two grandmothers, Joyce Wiltse and Ada Pearsall; his aunt, Lori Conboy and her husband Mike; his cousins, Michael and Jonathan Conboy; and many other aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
The Pearsall family sincerely thanks all the first responders from the Mashpee Fire and Rescue Department, Mashpee Police Department, Boston MedFlight, and the countless wonderful, compassionate physicians, nurses, and staff at MGH who worked tirelessly for Jack.
A celebration of Jack's life will take place Friday, July 15 at 5 pm at Trotting Park, one of his very favorite places to be. All are welcome. A memorial fund for Falmouth soccer players has been set up through the Falmouth Soccer Club.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Jack Pearsall Memorial Fund, 26 Paddock Circle, East Falmouth, MA 02536.
