On Friday June 28, 2019, we lost the heart of the Almgren family. For 25 years Pierce enriched the lives of others around him, not with dialect, but through his way of life and a smile that could change a room. Although Pierce can never be replaced, the lessons of kindness, stability, love and acceptance of all people, regardless of ability, will be carried on by everyone who had the pleasure of meeting him.
Surviving are his parents, Kevin G. and Kristen E., nee Kanuika, Almgren;
his twin sister, Gabrielle Almgren;
two brothers, Gibson Almgren and Dalton Almgren;
his paternal grandfather, Gary Almgren;
and his paternal grandmother, Gillian Almgren.
