“Pearce’s middle name is in honor of his late father who passed on January 7th”

This part nearly gave me a heart attack. I’m hoping the wording is ambiguous and that it was Robert’s father who died rather than Robert (not that I’d wish for either to die – but you know what I mean). At first reading it sounds like Pearce was given his middle name for his Father, not his Grandfather.

Sorry, I edited the post to make the wording clearer and screwed it up! Oops!
