George Peirce was born and bred in Barrington. He attended Hough Street, Grove Ave and Barrington High School. He served in Vietnam and received the Bronze Star. Thirty-seven of his working years were an executive with a transportation company based in Hinsdale, IL.
He is happily married to Margaret Peirce and has two step daughters and four grandchildren who plan on helping him kick in his dance step.
He especially enjoys his volunteer duties with BACOA. It is very gratifying helping senior's complete activities they are no longer able to do. Their smiles and gratitude are such a reward.
