ROGERS, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Benton County sheriff’s deputy Joshua Pierson is laid to rest at Cross Church Pinnacle Hills in Rogers on December 2.

He served with the Benton County Sheriff’s Office for the last 10 years. Before that, he was in the U.S. Army serving two tours in Kosovo and Afghanistan.
“We’re just at a loss,” Chief Deputy Meyer Gilbert said. “A deputy to pass away in his 30s with two young children is just a major shock to our organization.”
Pierson is survived by his fiance Jess Putnam and two children.
The family asks for donations to the Benton County Sheriff`s Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 89 in lieu of flowers.
