There’s a new tenor in heaven. David Pierce, musician, chef, caterer, NYSSMA adjudicator, and actor left his pain and exorbitantly priced diabetes medications behind for the joy of harmonizing with his sister, father, and Lord in paradise. Famous for his hilarious characterizations onstage locally with SRO III and EPAC, he met his bride in the theater and for 21 years they made beautiful music together in both church and theatrical settings. Owner of For the Table Catering and Cooking School, David inspired countless students to excel in cuisine. As a vocal judge, he encouraged young singers to shine. David helped start a weekly Soup & Sandwich Saturday program at All Saints Episcopal and delighted in traveling to France with the Binghamton-La Teste Sister Cities Band, playing trumpet and hosting French visitors to our region with charm, humor, and a Maurice Chevalier accent. Pre-deceased by his sister, Susan M. Pierce, father, Lowell E. Pierce, and grandparents, Lowell S. and Mildred Pierce, Joseph and Esghooie Afarian.
